Sharing Airband Feed

If you have a device monitoring VHF through RTL-Airband software you can share your stream with us and get a FREE upgrade to a Business Account!

Just follow these steps:

1 Sign in to your RadarBox account

In order to start sharing your VHF data with us, you need to be logged in. If you don't have a RadarBox account, you can create one for free.

2 Generate a Serial Key

Once you're logged in you will need to generate a serial key. This key identifies your feed and serves as the mounting point to our IceCast server.

Each installation should have a unique serial key.

3 Configure RTL-Airband

Using the generated serial as the mountpoint and your RadarBox credentials for the username and password fields, add an entry to your monitoring channel's output in the RTL-Airband configuration file. Please refer to the RTL-Airband User Manual for additional information on how to configure your device.

Example:

pidfile = "/run/rtl_airband.pid";
devices = (
  {
    // Set device to scanning mode if you are scanning multiple frequencies
    mode = "scan";
    ...
    channels = (
      {
        // Set the frequency you are scanning
        freq = 123000000;
        // Or if you are in scanning multiple frequencies
        freqs = ( 123000000, 123500000 );
        ...
        outputs = (
          // Example configuration for RadarBox
          {
            disable = false;
            type = "icecast";
            server = "audio.rb24.com";
            port = 8000;
            mountpoint = "EXTVHFXXXXXX";
            username = "[email protected]";
            password = "*********";
            name = "My Transmitter";
            genre = "ATC";
            send_scan_freq_tags = true;
          },
          // Example configuration for LiveATC
          {
            disable = false;
            type = "icecast";
            server = "audio-in.liveatc.net";
            port = 8010;
            mountpoint = "XXXXXXX;
            username = "XXXXXX";
            password = "XXXXXX";
            name = "My Transmitter";
            genre = "ATC";
            send_scan_freq_tags = true;
          }
        );
      }
    );
  }
);

4 Check station and wait for approval

Once you've setup RTL-Airband and start broadcasting, you can head over to your VHF station page at https://www.radarbox24.com/stations/EXTVHFXXXXXX, where you can define your station's location and listen to your audio feed.

After your station is approved, this page will become visible to other users. All done!
