Sadly, no .. broadcastify switched to a rotating set of public URLs for streams just to prevent poaching of their streams.

As stated by Ken, and previously by The Team.. ... these third party stream hosts don't appreciate using their bandwidth, expecially if they are revenue producing. It is certainly unfriendly to piggyback, a bit unethical, and may even be illegal in some instances. Stream hosting, site and server monitoring and maintainence is expensive, and we are very fortunate to have a donated IceCast host. otherwise we couldn't pull this project along... Doug C, Chris C, and Cutty provide most of the 'behind the scenes' server, domain and any licensing expense for some scripts, and media, and Ken, and others keep the site perking along with script updates etc....   and this is small potatoes compared to the Radio Reference Group (Broadcastify).

There is a simple solution.  Many encoders can stream to multiple servers.. multiple incidences of an encoder like BUTT can run, to several servers.. Some like SECaster can stream to multiple with one instance... many NWRORG stream providers point multiple streams... hardly notice it's going on.,.. we know one provider who has 6 running out of his cave, and who knows about Ken, Doug, many others... no biggie.

As mentioned in the previous post, I stream the three alternate Omaha, NE streams to different servers using an RTL SDR and DarkIce running on a Raspberry Pi 3.  The streams are:

http://wxradio.dyndns.org:8000/NOAA/KIH61.mp3 - Chris Cís server
http://audio9.broadcastify.com/xmhy7dv5ftj2.mp3 - Broadcastify
http://172.104.31.232:8000/NWROrgTestOmaha - Brandonís server

The primary Omaha, NE stream is self-hosted using a Midland WR300 feeding a USB audio dongle on a Raspberry Pi 3.  Itís also running DarkIce and IceCast.    http://chappelleweather.com:8000/NOAA/KIH61.mp3

Mine has a similar complexity for two radios:
Monterey (KEC49) audio from Midland 300 radio .. to 3 streams from Weather PC:
   local stream (http://saratogawx.dyndns.org:88/broadwave.mp3) via Broadwave
   wxradio:  (http://wxradio.dyndns.org:8000/KCASARATOGA/Saratoga.mp3) and Broadcastify via edcast

Monterey Marine (WWF64) is an RPi3 raspian/jessie RTL SDR with icecast/darkice and 3 streams:
   local stream:  http://saratogawx.dyndns.org:8001/Saratoga-WWF64.mp3
   wxradio: http://wxradio.dyndns.org:8000/Saratoga-WWF64.mp3 and broadcastify

Our "semi-annual' Listing cleanup:
Rather brutal, this time:  The following streams have been inaccessible >72 hours as of 11:AM EST12/15/20196.
These streams have been permanently REMOVED from the listing. 

When you have resumed the stream,you MUST submit a NEW STREAM REPORT ( https://noaaweatherradio.org/addstream/addstream.html ) to be restored otherwise it WILL NOT be re-added.
**a few are "alternate" streams... If you aree a "primary" please chec your stream and the website if in doubt.

For something different, while related, here is a photo of the tower site for the transmitter of the Stillwater, OK  NOAA station transmitter, 162.500 MHz.  It's about 3/4 of a mile east of the city limits near the Payne County Fairgrounds.  Power is 1000 watts.  It's located nearly in the center of the county, so serves the county well.  County population is a bit over 80,000.

Season's Greetings!


We might have had this ready in time for the Chubby Chimney Sweep's arrival, but it hasn't quite worked out...
... but we'll give you 'shareholders' in the NWROrg community a look at an alternate page we're considering.
https://noaaweatherradio.org/wxradio-3/radios.php

Play a bit, and check it on your various devices and browers and give your thoughts...
Yes, the "Adjunct/Auxillary" streams do NOT display a 'coverage map' . and a feew other smaller things...

This is built upon the NWROrg site script suite V3 developed by Doug, Ken, et all...for stand-alone, or Saratoga Templtes...

It is quite annoying as KWO35 in New York City is back on the air from the Empire State Building. They are in test mode running low power at the moment and the coverage where I am, even with an outdoor antenna, is fuzzy. However, someone much closer to the station is feeding them on Broadcastify at https://www.broadcastify.com/listen/feed/25412/web. The audio is crystal clear, much better than what I receive OTA, but unfortunately it suffers from the rotating URL's. Unrelated, I did notice there is a 70 second time lag between the broadcast and the stream.

Good job on the Alternate page, I like it.

Plusses are.

Now this is a very impressive peak listeners total. Most probably last night storm.

Sorry if this has come up in this section of forum already, but has there been talk of adding an SSL certificate to the wxradio.dyndns.org domain?  Getting mixed content notification in browser where link to my stream is on my site.  Not a big deal, just curious.

Yes, but only to the point where we recognized that the Icecast server is an expensive donation from Crushed Box Software, who is kind enough to bear all the expense and registrations.  The Main website page uses an onload floater disclaimer re: mixed content.

While we DO NOT monitor stream connections and listener traffic for many reasons,
Doug has added a 'snapshot' to the main QRA web access page, for those who
use our primary IceCast server.  Others are 'out of luck'..

IF you provide a NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio stream,
IF you use the NWROrg IceCast Server WxRadio.DynDns
and
IF you are subscribed to
