• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Since this feed has gotten so busy, I'm thinking about deleting Redondo Beach and Hermosa Beach Police and Fire from the lineup as it's already being carried by another feed provider.

Here's the dilemma: On one hand, it's nice to have all the South Bay cities centralized in one feed and not having to switch over between feeds...But on the other hand, you might miss an important transmission if it keeps stopping on a frequency that is covered by another feed provider. But on the other hand (reverting back to my first point), you might also end-up missing an important transmission as you probably aren’t listening to two separate feeds at the same time.

What do you think? Should I keep the lineup as it is or should I delete RB/HB from the lineup?

Not enough agencies = more dead air. Too many agencies = missed traffic. You might decide which agency is most important to you and run it on priority mode. You can still have the other agencies carried on the other feed, but you won't miss anything on the priority feed. I prefer listening to constant traffic. That's how I ended up configuring my feed.

If someone wants to hear both feeds, they can open them both at the same time....as least on a computer.....I do this during major incidents.....
