OP25 is my FAVORITE police scanner program. I track two trunked radio systems with ONE software defined radio. My Uniden Police Scanner that does that costs $800. This way costs about $30.
Anyway, I’m reading through some OP25 stuff today and I found out it has a web interface. SAY WHAT? Looks like this.

Soooooo………how do you do it? It’s pretty easy but it only works with the latest commits to OP25. Make sure to download and install the very latest version. Run the following 5 commands:
cd git clone https://github.com/boatbod/op25.git cd op25 ./install.sh sudo apt-get install gnuplot-x11
