Guide Review - Pirate Radio

The Pirate Radio package puts Internet broadcasting into the palm of the common person, whether a 16-year-old teenager who wants to stream his favorite songs to his girlfriend on a Friday night or the senior citizen who wishes to upload a recorded show about tending a summer garden. It doesn't get any easier than this! The interface is simple and intuitive. Pirate Radio is similar to Shoutcasts' process except easier. With Shoutcast you must configure Winamp (since it broadcasts using that platform), download some additional software doo-dads and tinker with it more. Having done this in the past, I appreciate the simplicity of Pirate Radio and its setup. Pirate Radio empowers anybody with the ability to reach the world on a shoestring.

Destiny Radio Broadcaster 3, Member Frevol

I have my btoadcaster 3 since 2005. I had it running for a while for the player and my website. I shut it down for a few years since it was just a hobby. Now I have more time, I put it up again (Konpa Music Radio in the Mixed Format). You can check it out. I am only playing music for now. I want to use it for business now and I don't find a way to broadcast live phone calls with it. If you or anyone else know how to accomplish this task, , would you, please, advise me of it, since it will serve for a lot of people too. That a very good product with its limitation considering its price.
