If you’re like me, sometimes your schedule is so busy that you just can’t get to the radio to check into the MESH Net, or maybe you are stuck in a basement or at work and wish you could listen to the repeater. Well – dread no more, I have a solution to your woes!
I was wondering what to do with some extra hardware that I was playing with after a repeater interfacing mock-up I was working on a couple of months ago. Without going into a lot of technical detail, I was able to reconfigure some older systems, repurpose a couple of scanning receivers that my wife will no longer allow me to set up in main rooms in our house, and configured it to stream audio from both repeaters live to the internet!
That’s right – if you have internet access, you can listen to the W8TCM Repeaters Live! Thanks to the folks at RadioReference.com (in partnership with broadcastify) you can listen for free, and I can stream it to their servers for free. You can search for “W8TCM” right from the main page and find it, or you can use this link: http://www.broadcastify.com/listen/feed/17816
At the time of writing, from the webpage you are able to stream into Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, iTunes, or Winamp. There is also a Java player and a web-based player. There is an app called “Scanner Radio” in both the Android Google Play and IOS Apple App Stores
– for free!
So – enjoy the repeater audio, whether you’re stuck in a basement or miles away!
