LRN.FM features the best liberty-oriented audio on the internet including both live and recorded programming.  See our program guide here: http://Shows.LRN.FM

You can pull our feed from our high quality 64k mono stream or grab us on our brand new Ku-band Free-to-Air satellite channel.  Satellite coordinates available at http://Sat.LRN.FM
Technical note - The Ku-band feed is currently being fed via our public internet feed.  I will be ordering a piece of hardware to dedicate a low delay feed directly to the uplink facility, but the hardware (Barix Extreamer 500) won't be available until August.  Once I get that in the satellite feed will be near-realtime and I'll update this thread.

Take as much or as little of our programming as you prefer.  Run 24/7 if you like.  If you do pick up some or all of our programming, please just give me a heads up so I can list your station on our radio affiliates page.  Also, if you pull the programming, flip frequencies, or go off-the-air, I'd appreciate a heads up so as to keep our list up-to-date.

The Barix Extreamer 100 is a low-budget, semi-pro dedicated internet audio receiving device.  However, it's not a wifi device, so how to make it work on a wireless LAN?

If you have a better suggestion, I'd love to hear it.  Mine works, but was a pain to figure out:

I use the D-Link DGL-3420 to convert the Barix's network connection to a WiFi connection.

NOTE:  Your network settings may vary.  This is what worked for me.

It was a big pain of trial and error to get this working.  First, I set up the D-Link to access my's wifi network, and then I changed the LAN settings to include my network's gateway (the default is 0.0.0.0).



Here are basic settings for the Barix:


I also set up the Barix to have a static IP.  The DNS entries are for OpenDNS.



My streaming settings.  The first URL is the LRN broadband stream, the second is our dialup stream  The third entry is "__EXSTR.M3U", the name of the file the Barix auto-generates when you put a flash drive full of MP3s in its USB port.  I recommend a flash drive full of introduction-to-liberty MP3s.  For recommendations on which MP3s make for good introductions, see the section on internet receiving equipment for medium budgets here on the LRN.FM broadcast page..


Happy wifi streaming!
