I don't know what the difference would be between your site and mine.  I did also notice that using your page and switching to my feed (South Bend, IN) still results in a broken padlock even with a secure stream.  Hopefully, Ken will have an answer.

I believe I see the problem.  Your using the old version (1.04) of NWR-radios.js that was for Google Maps.  You just need to replace it with the new version (2.0) from Ken's package.

And I don't think there is a way around the broken lock.  I don't believe any of the streams are HTTPS.   

EDIT:  My mistake.  I see your stream is HTTPS.  So I don't know the answer to the broken lock.

Well...  I just tried your HTTPS link again and see it works now and the lock was green.  Switched to another stream and the lock broke.  Switched back to your stream and it stayed broken.  Guess once it's broken, it stays broken.

I just tried all your feed URLs, and they all worked for me (map loads, etc).
https://mymishawakaweather.com/wxnoaaradio.php
http://ww2.mymishawakaweather.com/wxradio.php
So the correct parts for the scripts are present.  If using Google Chrome, you may have to tweak the developer tools to not cache the javascripts -- I did when I was doing testing.  Try displaying the pages with Firefox, Edge, IE, Opera to see if it's a Chrome issue or not.

When using https for the page, it will keep a solid lock if the stream selected is also https, otherwise a 'broken lock' will be displayed if the stream selected is http -- that's just the way it works.  At present, none of the wxradio.dyndns.org streams are provided with https.

The coverage image uses a 'proxy' of NWR-coverage.php?map=[callsign] to fetch the image from the non SSL site and return it with SSL to the browser.. That way, if an SSL stream is used, the site should display as 'secure'.

EDIT: I have replaced the old version of  NWR-radios.js as you suggested (I thought I already had!).  Thank you for that and for helping me out with this snag.

Thanks Ken.  I followed up by trying FF and IE and as you mentioned they both display the page correctly.  I hate Chrome sometimes but after clearing the cache again, this time "for all time" I have a fully functional page.  I appreciate the reply and the help.

My memory crashed and lost all info required for source client on RadioFeed.  Possibly forgot my password, too. So now working from a blank setup.   Is there a page somewhere that shows how to set up the required info on the source client.  After nearly two years, I can't remember.  Hopefully, if I look more in my records, I'll find what is needed.

Also the 2nd home page using modified AltDashboard 6.95 at http://stillwaterweather.com/wx/2ndhome.php

Bunty, you should be able to go from here with what you need....
http://noaaweatherradio.org/howto.html
You were pointed to our Icecast, wxradio.dyndns.org
the port number would be 8000
 and you were using
stillwatertownie/stillwaterok.mp3
as your mount point

Has anyone who uses Butt notice that the current release does not have the option available to connect on start-up?  Earlier releases did so I can't help but wonder a) why did they remove that option? and b) is there anything wrong with using version 0.1.12 which does have that option?

The Windows version 0.1.15 we have on the website has "start streaming at startup' tick box under settings, 'stream' tab...
http://noaaweatherradio.org/howto.html

assume the same for Linux and MAC versions.

Thanks Mike.  I had been using the latest version (0.1.16) but I'll switch to that one.

Guys, F.Y.I, on Win 7 there is no tick box to connect on start-up in versions 0.1.15 or 0.1.16.  At least not on my system.  There is in version 0.1.12.  Very befuddling indeed  ](*,)

If you mean :"Start when Windows Starts"... true... you have to add BUTT to the start up folder manually....

Tom, that is really my fault... I did NOT include that 'datum' in the 'how to pdf' on the website... no excuses, I overlooked it somehow.. and didn't realize it wasn't there until I checked a few minutes ago,... I'm sorry for the frustration... my bad......
...I did a quick update to the 'BUTT' how-to example http://noaaweatherradio.org/Encoders/BUTT/QuickSetButt-wxradio.dyndns.org.pdf to include this dumb omission...... if anyone's accessed the link, might have to clear your cache, the older version may still be stored in your browser...

It's not on you Mike.  I should have spent a few minutes scouring the settings before I jumped to that conclusion.

MAJOR SERVER UPGRADE
« Reply #915 on: August 22, 2018, 10:08:16 AM »
NWROrg will move to a new, updated Server on or about Sept 3 2018...
among other enhancements, the site will go SSL, and the server main IP will change..., it may be necessary to 'clear' your Local DNS cache after the move...

Awesome!  Another advancement that would be great is if the Icecast server used by most streamers went ssl too  =D>

Tom, an inquiry has been made regarding this, and the decision and any action are totally up to our 'benefactor', Chris, at Crushed Box Software, who donates that primary Icecast for our stream providers.

Our 'alternate' Icecast, is contributed by Brandon, and should he wish to upgrade the alternate to SSL, some folks might want to point to him... again, these are 'contributions' -- folks absorb all the expense and effort themselves, to make NOAA Weather Radio Org work!

Yes, I'm aware that it is all "contributed" and no-one is more appreciative of that than I am.  That being said, if either of those two aforementioned folks want help in setting it up I'm sure that all of us here would jump to provide that help.  SSL certs can be obtained for little cost and in some cases at no cost at all.  The way Google is moving, sometime in the near future it will become difficult to utilize any content deemed "insecure".  These are just my thoughts so let me emphasize that everyone involved with this project from the top down should be thanked because it takes a lot of work and dedication to manage a project like this.

Hey a bit off topic if you guys are hearing KZZ52, I apologize for the hum, I've been hearing that now for the past week so later on, as I'll have to wait till after 11:15 AM, but I will be calling NWS Omaha to report the problem with KZZ52.  So yeah that's on the transmitter side.  THought I'd update you guys.

Perhaps for fastest 'repair' or response, calling NWFO may be best...
...but...  before calling local NWFO...
 be sure to utilize this tool first: (linked on NWROrg menu as "NOAA Radio Status")
http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/outages/outages.php
So far looks like no one has reported an issue with KZZ52
and whether you call local or not also report transmitter problems at,
http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/outages/report.php
That ensures it gets in 'national' database, once they confirm the issue...
(sometimes you'll even get a response from them.. not always...)

My only question regarding moving to ssl will be whether or not my screen reader will acknowledge the page.  Does the Page layout change as a result of this upgrade?

No, you need not make any changes to your pages.  If there is an exception it would be related to "mixed content".  That means that if you have any external content displayed on your page and it is not also ssl secure it will not appear and your https will be broken.  For most sites, no changes need be made.  That said, the Icecast server is stand-alone server. You can secure that server without touching your main site.  Perhaps someone can explain this better?

Ok, so the page will show up the same to my screen reader then, basicly what was accessible to start with will be accessible still.  Good deal.  Also of note as kzz52 is currently down I've switched my radio to hear kih61 temporarily as kzz52 is currently off the air.  Once kzz52 returns to air I'll reset, but didn't want my stream to have dead air.

Too bad seattle ended their live streams as we had 6 possible streams right there folks.  Keep those new feeds coming, good to hear wxk76, wwf98 and wxk35 in there.  if I missed any new aditions let me know.
