Hours:
Seven days a week: 12:00 am-5:00 am


Updates are occasionally provided outside of these hours, however the normal hours are the only time that I am for sure monitoring my equipment.

Note: Hours are subject to change should a new media contracts arise or current media contract be expanded.


History:
Believe it or not, Operation 100 News is the work of only one person. It all started with one 100 channel analog scanner back in 1996. At that time I only monitored Law Enforcement in Johnson County, along with Fire Departments and Med-Act of Johnson County. Today, Operation 100 News has eight scanners, three of which are capable of monitoring Digital P25 Radio Systems, an outdoor, roof mounted antenna, two dedicated computers and a dedicated internet capable cell phone. I have been monitoring Johnson County since 1996 and Douglas County since 2002.



Operation 100 News has been around since 2003 as a dream of immediate public notification of unfolding emergency situations in your neighborhood, letting you know what is happening nearby to keep you and your family aware and safe. 


I currently monitor Police, Sheriff, Fire and Medical county-wide for Douglas and Johnson County. I also monitor Miami County Fire and EMS, southern Leavenworth County Fire and EMS along with LifeFlight Eagle and LifeStar Medical Helicopters.

Operation 100 News is a 100% free service to the General Public, with more than 50 hours dedicated to its operation each week by one person and funding is extremely tight. Currently funded by personal funds, occasional public donations and 
news media contracts. 


At first Operation 100 News called and notified other news media's news desks to unfolding situations and responded to incident scenes. After several failed attempts at cooperation with KC area media, this changed to a by contract only service for local media. Previous efforts were mainly one sided with KC media outlets taking whatever information I could offer them with very few realizing the potential of what Operation 100 News could offer them. Several news outlets within my coverage area have since contracted with me. Those outlets receive a phone call to their contact person when news breaks that they have contracted me to notify them of.
