Improvements to the repeater live internet feed.

Last week I (Edgar / KC2UEZ) made a few changes to the live feed of the repeater. Take a look to the right menu under Listen Live there is a FLASH audio player. Click on the triangle it will start streaming the live audio from the clubs repeater. No more need for special players or opening web pages. It has also been tested with Linux, MAC’s, BlackBerry and some other OS’s. We are also featured on the global stations directory. If you experience any problems please repot them to webmaster [at] k2jji [dot] org.
