Do you want to just monitor or interact?

If just for monitoring, I took the speaker output of my micor (which is 
on a separate board that was installed by the builder...for local 
monitoring...), padded it down and feed it into a pc that's serving some 
shoutcast streams for my internet radio network feeds on an oddball port 
that I listen to with a free iPhone app.  Seems to work ok.  There's 
about a 15-30 second buffer lag, but, the quality is pretty good.  Oh, 
yeah, the shoutcast stream is password protected, btw, so, it's pretty 
much only myself that uses it (and now you all know...;))

If you have your node configured with Echolink, the iPhone echolink app 
works a treat; if you don't use a proxy, remember to wait for a couple 
minutes between starting the app up and trying to connect so the app_rpt 
node gets the updated list of authenticated systems...otherwise, go thru 
a proxy, which are probably already in the app_rpt echo database, from 
what I can see.

I'm sure there's other ways...the first came to mind quickly when I was 
setting up some other things...and I use Echolink on an occasional 
basis...others may have their own favorite ways of doing so...

In this world, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.
Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant.
