how difficult is it to set up a feed? Reason I ask is i live very near an Air Force base. it would also be neat for people to hear me controlling traffic.
It is actually easy to do, assuming you have the proper equipment:
1) A scanner, most likely one with UHF and VHF capabilities for military scanning.
2) Proper antenna - preferably an outdoor antenna. These can be purchased over the web, Radio Shack, or even made by you using instructions from the web.
3) Low-loss antenna cable that connect the antenna to the scanner.
4) A computer - preferably a dedicated unit that can be left on contiguously. For my feed I use an old Dell laptop, 512 MB RAM and PIII chip (500MHz, I believe) that I have running in my basement, out of the way . The computer should have a sound card that has an audio-in jack. A typical laptop and desktop offer these.
5) An always-on Internet connection - for example, cable broadband, phone company DSL, Verizon FiOS, Satellite broadband, or wireless broadband (Sprint, Verizon).
6) An audio cable to connect your scanner's audio-out to the computer's sound card audio-in.

1) The software needed to run that receives the audio from the scanner and converts it to a digital stream that is uploaded to LiveATC's servers.
Dave (who replied above) or Jason here will be happy to walk you through the easy software setup process to get your feed up and running.
Looking forward to your feed!
