Thanks for confirming my observations.  It seems, however, that if one

Of course, if one then later determines that they wish to make something

possible hardest part -- locating the url -- is there sitting for you in 
properties from
which you can copy and paste into the new profile.

Truly, now that I've played with various aspects of the program, it's very

become irrelevant given the url finder that Petro explains working with.

And, as for the best sources of station urls, my current favorites are


Streaming Radio Guide


Mike's Radio World

I cannot speak highly enough of all these three as their 
operators/managers/staff truly keep on top of things.  I can speak 
personally as to the updating of information on Radiotime as I routinely 
submit info to them and, in most instances, they act on it within a few

explaining its use as described by Petro:

A brief description is also included in the user guide.
