   I have successfully set up  a IceCast server relay at live365.
   My stream is 64 Kbit/s. I can se my self if the stream list. And I
   can find my self if I search on the station name.
   To create a link to the station I copied the link that I got from
   live365, and put it in a WinAmp .pls file.

   My station: http://ramzeus.hn.org/radiolegion/
