This site has very good information on what Ham radio is, how to get a license, what type of radio to get, etc. A good wealth of info here.
Network Radio Resources:
This portion of our site goes through some of the more popular network radio models and we give our 2 cents. These are our "picks"....
Lots of interesting Zello resources here. Have fun digging around in here :)
This site is in association with the Network Radios channels 00 - EV on Zello. They offer a very good explanation as to what Network Radio is, guides on how to use Zello, and they even offer custom unbloated firmware for many popular network radios - like the Anysecu N60 for example!
This is a great video explaining in detail what Network Radio is

Streaming 2-way Radio Resources
Not many of us can set up a huge antenna tower out back and enjoy picking up distant transmissions from afar. Not many of us can afford expensive scanners to pick up trains, planes, police and more.
...that is until the world wide web came along, and cool sites like the ones mentioned below were developed.
The internet has made this world much smaller, and brings it to a computer or device near you. Now you can listen to a police scanner in Chicago. Or local hams talk in Iowa. Or 80 meter hams talk from just about anywhere in the world. All from the comfort of your PC or mobile device.
I will try to keep this list of sites updated as more come along.
A WebSDR is a Software-Defined Radio receiver connected to the internet, allowing many listeners to listen and tune it simultaneously. SDR technology makes it possible that all listeners tune independently, and thus listen to different signals; this is in contrast to the many classical receivers that are already available via the internet.
MOBILE USERS: Unfortunately there's no phone app version of this site to download. If you are trying to access this site on a mobile device, I warn you now, some broadcaster sites are a little clunky, although some do offer a mobile version of their site. Also, you will want to use FireFox. Chrome doesn't handle the audio stream too well.
LiveATC.net (Live Air Traffic Control) is where you can go to listen to MANY control towers across the globe. Simply search for Airport or ARTCC code or frequency.
They also offer an app can download on various devices instead of using a web browser (for $3.99)
Listen to train broadcasts from all over the North American continent.
There is no mobile app for this site yet, however there is a page for mobile users that makes it easy to switch from stream to stream.
