I replied yesterday, but think I missed the group:

What you need to do is tell Broadcastify that you have your own Icecast 
server.  Give them the full URL, port, and mount name. They are the ones 
that need to configure the relay.

I currently stream multiple live scanner feeds via my own Icecast 
install, but have Broadcastify relaying only 4 of my feed (the 
countywide feeds).  If you change your Icecast URL, you will need to 
notify them.

If you are using their services strictly to support smart phones, there 
are other options.  You can reach out directly to the author of Scanner 
Radio app (Gordon Edwards), and see if he can add your feeds to the 
directory.   Using that method, my listeners can find my countywide 
feeds under Broadcastify and under w2lie.net.   All my other feeds 
appear under the w2lie.net directory.

Good luck.
