You don't need the USB cable for your feed unless you want to stream metadata (alpha tags).
Connect a Mono 1/8’ mini connector cable from the "record out" on your scanner to the "line in" on your computer. The "record out" allows for a constant audio level. Make sure you have record out enabled on the channels you want to stream.
I highly recommend using RadioFeed
