I guess I don't understand what you are trying to do. Are you
trying to stream an existing FM station over shoutcast? Assuming
you are running a UNIX-like OS like *BSD or Linux, that is pretty
easy with an FM card like the Hauppauge TV/FM card driving the
analog input of a sound card like a Sound Blaster. At that point
taking the /dev/dsp PCM audio and shoving it into something like
my MIXICE perl script (http://www.lns.com/papers/mixice) or Liveice
(http://star.arm.ac.uk/~spm/software/liveice.html) program will do
If you want to FM broadcast a stream, then get your self a FM
transmitter kit like the Ramsey (http://www.ramseyelectronics.com)
FM10A transmitter kit and have the audio card drive it.
