Hi:
For those interested - I am able to stream my Local Police, Fire, EMS scanner frequencies on my Boom.

Just go to the following link: http://www.radioreference.com/ - do a search for your state under the Live Audio tab. Then choose the "Real Player" drop down to listen to the frequency. Once you have Real Player up - click on Clip Info to obtain the streaming link.
NOTE: You will need to install "Play Real Audio" Plug-In.
Just copy and paste the link into the "Play Real Audio" Plug-In - save to your Favorites and you should be good to go.

I know there may not be a lot of people interested in this - but - it just gives you another listening option for your SB products.

I listen to scanners and a member of Radio Reference site. I already started to add scanner feeds to my favorites :) Scanner feeds are great source of news if something happens in another city. Fire in CA, etc.

I've tried adding Waterloo Regional Police to the Boom as a favourite using this URL:

http://www.radioreference.com/apps/audio/?action=wp&feedId=3225

The Boom just tells me there is nothing there...have I got that address wrong I wonder?

The Waterloo URL points to a Flash audio stream which is not supported on SBS.

Not all audio streams use the same audio format.

Try selecting another player for Waterloo. This one works for me. You will only hear the audio when they are talking.
