Question ScannerCast 16K bits or 32K bits?

I am using the full version of ScannerCast, not the RR version. I have the latest update. I originally set up my feed with a single scanner and a mono feed, and following the instructions I set the MP3 bit rate to 16K bits/second. Later, I went stereo. Should I have changed it to 32K bits/second? My audio tends to sound a bit "squirrely," especially with a weak, staticky signal.

Thanks, and sorry if this has been asked and answered before. I did do a quick search for it but got no definitive answer.

Yes if you are running a stereo feed it needs to be 32K.
