    Default Zello: Seeking Guidance

    Hi Guys

    I am looking to use Zello to hear my fire department when I am at work (40 miles away). I don't need it to work both ways, just to monitor our radio traffic on my phone so I can be nosy. I like Zello due to the short latency. I have a host of radio equipment to use for the project but I do not want to tie up a laptop to do this. Any suggestions on how I can do this?

    I have an old laptop now but it has some sort of driver issue that causes it to reboot and I need it to program my older gear. I also have one of those Radio-Tone VOiP interfaces but I cant seem to make it work.

    Thank you for your help

    I have used one of the Radio_Tone units for years with no problem. I have one that has been on Rx-Zello model in 24/7/365 duty for 2-3 years

    I just ran from the RX_FILTERED audio pin and ground to a regular line in on my computer and set Zello to VOX. Works great. I have 6 radios on dedicated channels coming out my private Zello room.
