  • Queensland State Emergency Service - SES
  • Surf Life Saving Queensland - QSLS

The streaming service is hosted entirely on the Raspberry Pi Model B. Scanner audio is from a Uniden UBC73XLT, stock rubber ducky antenna used. The Raspberry Pi runs a cocktail of Darkice scripts and an IceCast 2 server to bring you the audio to this webpage.

Raspberry Pi - Streaming police scanner audio project.

Raspberry Pi Model B

Raspberry Pi is a $35* single board computer. *Less postage and accessories. For its price it has some serious grunt under the hood and is capable of run many complex tasks and programs. I've had an idea for a project for quite sometime involving streaming audio from my Uniden scanner to the internet for myself and the general public to listen to. Instead of using a power hungry Windows computer to do so, I opted in using the tiny Raspberry Pi, running Rasbian headless (without a screen attached). I currently have my RasPI pumping out audio from my local police and emergency frequencies to a Broadcastify stream here...
