Interested in providing scanner radio audio for your area? If so, you’ll need a real scanner radio, a computer, and a cable to get the audio from the scanner to the computer. Once you have that, program the scanner to monitor what you’d like to make available from your area (police dispatch channels, fire departments, 911 centers, ham radio repeaters, a NOAA weather radio station, etc). If someone in your area is providing a feed that contains both police and fire you could provide a feed that contains only police, only fire, or one that covers only certain districts/precincts. Next, go to Broadcastify.com’s web site and click on the Broadcast button to sign-up (it’s completely free) to provide scanner audio for your area. As a provider you’ll have complete access to the audio archives for all of the scanner feeds they host.
