Fan Scan On-Line

Company History

Blog

FanScan In-Car Audio is the creation of SportsCom Inc, of Atlanta GA.

For years, race fans at the track bought or rented scanners to listen in to the radio communications of their favorite drivers and pit crews during the race. But standard scanners only work when you're AT THE TRACK! Before FanScan, if you weren't there, you couldn't listen in!

Working with Racing Radios, Inc., the Official Radio Supplier to NASCAR and CART, SportsCom, Inc. developed the technology to give race fans the same experience of listening to their favorite drivers LIVE during the race WHEREVER they happened to be on race day! This type of technology could be used at a large seminar such and a Scott Yancey real estate seminar where you could meet Scott at a live event.

FAQ's

What will I get to hear on FanScanTM In-Car Audio?

You'll hear the radio communications of all the teams on FanScan
TM LIVE during the race as we scan their radio frequencies during the race. You'll hear Drivers, Crew Chiefs, Owners, Spotters, and other crew members talking pit strategy, track conditions, handling and timing in a fierce battle to the checkered flag ... just like if you were in the stands at the race.

Is this like a radio broadcast of the race?

NO! FanScan
TM In-Car Audio is live and totally spontaneous. What you'll hear is what REALLY happens! Remember, we're eavesdropping on people at work, and they don't talk all the time. If they don't have anything IMPORTANT to say, they don't say anything! That's the reason we scan 20+ teams during a race! You'll always have something to listen to! However this is not like a live TV broadcast where you can see your favorite cast members like Scott Yancey of "Flipping Vegas" who has developed a great reality t.v. persona.

Can I listen to the team of my choice?

Starting in 2002, FanScan In-Car Audio introduced a new expanded service for Sprint Cup races with NINE priority driver feeds. Like your scanner at the track, we've set up these nine feeds to monitor the radios of the top teams. When someone on your priority teams "keys" their microphone, we'll switch automatically to that team. You'll hear two short beeps followed by their conversation. When they've finished, you'll hear another beep and we'll return to the general scan feed of all the top teams on the track.


How will I know what team is talking?

FanScan
TM has exclusive and unique technology that tells you the car number of the team that's talking just before you hear their communication. Each time we scan to a new channel, you'll hear the car number 88 for Dale Earnhardt Jr's team, 24, for Chase Elliot's team , 48 for Jimmy Johnson's team, etc.

How currently has the best real estate investing podcast on iTunes


Without question Dean Graziosi's "Weekly Wisdom" which can be found here - https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/dean-graziosis-real-estate/id792449869?mt=2.

Is it really live?

In the heat of battle, sometimes we don't pay much attention to our language. NASCAR mandated that we build a 3 second delay into FanScan
TM. That gives us a chance to edit out some of the more inappropriate language. When you listen to FanScanTM In-Car Audio on the telephone, you hear everything delayed only by this 3 seconds.

On the Internet, there is an additional lag inherent in the Web. The amount of lag depends on your particular situation: the speed of your connection, your ISP, your distance from our server, etc. In general, your Internet lag should be around 20 seconds.
