What is VK3JED Internet Radio?

VK3JED Internet Radio is an Internet "radio" station, which is capable of relaying both live and pre-recorded programmes to listeners connected via the Internet. Currently, the Internet radio station is under test, and will be activated periodically with various programme material. Examples of test programme material may include local on air activity or live satellite passes. In 2001, APC News will also be broadcast live via VK3JED Internet Radio, replacing the old web based audio service. The Internet radio station uses streaming MP3 audio at a very low bit rate, to provide excellent audio quality, even over sluggish modem links.

How can I listen in?

To listen to the Internet radio station, you need an audio player capable of playing streaming MP3 audio. Players known to be compatible include Winamp and Real Player 7 or later. There are also compatible players for PCs running Linux and Macintosh systems. The streaming audio player needs to be installed as per the vendor's instructions. People who already listen to Internet radio should already be correctly configured.

If you're having problems, here's a link to the instructions for Windows users and instructions for Macintosh users provided by Live365, where the station is hosted.

If you're setup, click on the link below. A new window will pop up, and your streaming audio player should start. If you get an error, it is likely that the radio station is offline.
