We are testing the use of VHF Channel 72 audio streaming.  Audio will only be available when communication occurs, which is typically before and during a race.

 This is an experiment to see how well this works and how much interest there is in using it.

Some hints on how to use (essentially stream an m3u file).

  • Windows 10 (Chrome prompts to download an ASX file, which can be opened with the free video player VLC to stream audio).

  • iOS works by using Safari automatically

  • Mac OS X 10.13 (High Sierra) using iTunes (Chrome allows the selection of the application to use, and appears to initially default to iTunes).
