• 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:

From Dispatch Monthly:

If you have an iPhone, you can now listen to public safety radio channels by tapping into the network of private scannerists who connect their radios to the Internet. You can download the FStream application from Apple's app Store. You can then determine the URL of the stream that you want to monitor from the Scan America Web site (http://www.scanamerica.us) on your computer. You then go back to your iPhone and the FStream application, go to "Favorites," and press the "Edit" button. Press "Add new webradio," and enter the URL and a descriptive name. Leave the format and bitrate boxes blank. You'll have to select "Enable Cellular Network" from the "More…" menu unless you're connected to the Web via Wi-Fi . Now press the "Play" button in the bottom menu, and the stream name you entered should be listed. Press on the stream name and you'll shortly hear the scanner audio. [If you have iTunes on your computer, go to http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=289892007&mt=8 to view FStream's download page. FStream will also receive radio broadcasts that are streamed on the Internet.]

Hey John, thanks for the info. This also works for the IPod touch as well..This is a free app too. I just installed this on my IPod touch and it works. Of course you have to be in a WiFi spot for this to work.

To help those for Scanning. For the IPhone and IPod Touch: Here's the link; From ScanAmerica. Using Denver for example. BTW FStream is the last one. (Free)
