Question Feed Display

Do any of the feeds display the active frequency along with the description?

It would depend on the settings the feed provider has set, along with what type of scanner they are using. There are several models of scanners that are capable of providing "Alpha Tags". Within the broadcasting software, one would have to set the program to display the frequency being transmitted. (ScannerCast and RadioFeed both are capable of this) You can also use the "Contact Feed Provider" button on the page of the feed you're inquiring about, then ask if the provider is capable/willing to provide the active frequencies.

Hope this has helped you!

FYI - An easy way to tell if alpha tags are being provided is to look for the little icon directly to the left of the feed name. If the icon is there, alpha tags are broadcast as part of the stream. As Shawn noted above, the feed provider chooses what alpha tag data to include when they configure their software. Personally, I always include the frequency and channel with my feeds that have alpha tags. Other providers might not.
