Streaming DFES scanner audio

Post by vk6hgr »

Hi All.

I have two receivers set up. One is on on channel 306 (WAERN) DFES 6AR Perth command channel, the other monitors major DFES and SES command channels.

Image

The radio is a 1988 edition Philips FM92. Pictured here is the old radio before installation into the radio rack.

Information for connecting to the streams is in the DFES One-stop shop thread.
My thanks to Fastlane for providing bandwidth.

This is the announcement thread. Please continue discussion in the discussion thread. (Old thread: here)

Listening on mobile phones

Here are some media players out there that will stream Shoutcast on mobiles:

Windows Mobile

GSplayer http://hp.vector.co.jp/authors/VA032810/

Symbian (Nokia, etc)

Hard to set up, but the S60 Internet Radio app does work

Great audio stream.
I'm a Volunteer Ambo in the country and this is great to be able to hear FESA dispatched to a job. When I'm on shift, it gives me a heads up that I'll receive a callout shortly.
Well done.

Likewise, so I guess that makes the answer 'yes'.

I'm out of town so it's hard to test. The server did crash but it's going now and I can see people are connected. What is it doing wrong?
