This page is experimental and may not always be live. If the player does not connect, the “play” button will keep returning. This indicates that the stream server or the stream source server at the office isn’t running.
Most of the time, the scanner will probably just produce faint background white noise. If the player is giving the option to pause, that means the stream is actually connected.
