• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

A unique and different app is available to listen to any streaming radio station anywhere in the world. It's called Radio Garden: Radio Garden

You can access from a PC or phone. When the app opens, the "Garden of radio stations begins to bloom", then you simply click on any green dot to listen to any available station in any language.

It's only been up for a few days.

So far useless.
Locations are thousands of miles off, or non functioning.

Nice idea, but lots of work is needed.

Totally Off Topic for Your Enjoyment

A friend of mine just sent me a link to this site. I am tuning in fantastic music from around the globe. Much more enjoyment than the local crime reports!

I think this website just searches for streaming audio and catalogs them regardless of whether it is broadcast FM or police radio. One of my finds was a radioreference link for an airport tower in the middle of rural Canada, another Putnam County Sheriffs office hear in FL. Right now the site is showing an error to me. Maybe too many connections.

also finding they don't know Geography. Click on my Local City/Town and am brought to a radio station in the same town name, but wrong state.

Still, not ready for prime-time, nice try tho
True I found some errors as well. A european station in Havana Cuba, one in Illinois. It needs some work to verify locations.
