    Be aware that in certain countries, like the UK, doing this is illegal and very heavily jumped on if you are caught.

    The point of my link was that no software is needed. You can listen directly from most such websites.

    Do you have the hardware/radio to receive scanner signals on your PC, if not than how is this software that you are looking for going to work? It's just going to connect to a website to get it anyways.

    You can't just keep repeating the same thing over and over again and not explain WHY you want it that way.
