Thanks again for trying and the info, didn't know it was such a deal. Still I would think if the school has the perfect location then there  is a way. Wouldn't a group of kids or class want to help with this as a project. I guess I will stick with playing with my trail cam down here, LOL.

ill suggest googling cost for running a web cam, then you will on get your answer.   If it was cheap and easy then everyone we ould have one.  Lol. Plus dealing with a gov agency isnt fun..

Depending on your cell phone and plan, you can easily stream live video/audio from anywhere theres 4g using ustream or livestream, I have sprints unlimited everything plan and as long as i am in 4g, I can stream live video. plus it saves video and can be linked to upload them to youtube automatically, heres 765 from the bed of Deer creek down by Delphi.

OK, to explain the entire story.

There was a plan to find a host, one day we lucked out and a building owner (who asked to remain nameless) said they would allow us to install a camera and all the stuff there as long as we paid the overage on their account for internet.  After discussion the overage wouldn't be bad and we agreed.  We actually started the process but it was slow for various reasons.  Finally I received a call from the building owner and due to things outside his control at the time (business) he decided to sell the property and quickly and that he asked the new owner and they did not want the hassle of us being there.  He was sorry for it but we all understood.
After a month I got a call about a possible location but after research there was no internet close to this location and the run would be great and finally the angle wasn't good.  We canned all the ideas and just walked away. 

The last location I had was the lumber yard, knowing the owner somewhat I felt I might have been able to work a deal out, but sadly they closed down and the future of the site is unknown due to the ownership of the land (NS) and well, it is what it is.

This leaves one last site, that is the BSU building or the Sweeper shop.  I'm just not into the politics involved there.

I'd love to see a rail park at Muncie, for the fans that enjoy it.  Those that know me know I wouldn't be there..  LOL
