We want to record all radio traffic at an airfield. The preference is for MP3 records, continuous rather than voice-activated - probably (automatically) split into 60-minute files.

As files are completed, they are posted on a very simple website which just has a chronological list. Users clicking on a file will download it and it will be played in their default MP3 player.

Any ideas about suitable off-the-shelf software for the recording bit? It doesn't have to be free.

The POST and Web stuff are no sweat.

How is the sound being outputted at the airfield, can you get a analog or digital line out which you can connected to a pc sound card line in?

Yes. Standard microphone-level input to the mic jack.

Late reply, but I only just noticed this post.

Is the radio traffic you want to record aviation or other?

If other, is it trunked or conventional?

I am assuming it is analog FM, not digital and not encrypted?

Did you find a solution?
