Listen To Local Police/Fire/Public Safety, Online Without A Scanner!

I have been secretly wanting a scanner for a while even though the wife thinks I'm paranoid enough as it is so I have been doing without, until today.
I had someone turn me on to a link to Broadcastify.com earlier this morning and I have been listening to the local police channel chatter for a while now.

It's simple to do too.
Click on the link, click on your state then click on your county.

If they are broadcasting it will be on a list on the page.Local, county, whatever is on the list you can listen to.

You can then pick what media player you want to use to listen with off a drop menu and away you go!

Plug in some headphones and you can listen to what is going on in your AO while you surf the Net or play games.

There is an Emergency Alert option and a Premium Subscription that I didn't even look at.

VERY handy.

Spread the word.

Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one, some peoples stink more than others too. Remember, I can make your opinion disappear, you keep the stink.
