Global Tuners

GlobalTuners is a web site that provides free access to radio receivers around the world. After creating a free account with log-in, you can access a receiver and listen to a frequency of your choice. Since the receivers are being shared by others, you must follow the web site's protocol of requesting permission to change a frequency, if others are listening to the current frequency. A chat window is provided to facilitate communication among concurrent listeners.

Thanks to W4BXI and W1TXT for the info about this site.
