• 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:

Has anyone else noticed it's virtually impossible to understand what's being said on Littleton/South Metro Fire channel?

Strangely, the audio sounds as if it's playing at DOUBLE TIME - too rapid to understand what's being said.

Any ideas?

Sounds good to me online and over the air. The Lola voice at the beginning has always been a little weird, if that's what your referring too.

If you're only listening to it over an internet feed, it's probably an issue with the streaming computer or the service. OTA sounds fine

I think you're right - it's always over the internet.
Every other agency I listen to on-line sounds fine.
Only LFR/SMFR on Broadcastify is messed up.

I live in Washington, DC (former Coloradoan) - so I can't listen Over-the-Air.

I wonder if the kind person who's streaming the feed could re-boot. (??)

Might try submitting a trouble report to the feed host.

I just checked the feed, and I'm getting the same weird stuttering and accelerated audio problem. I've submitted a problem report in the event that no one else has done so.

Im the feed provider. I did receive the trouble ticket. I will reset the software, and will bring it back to normal. For some reason the software has issues with the programming cable i have plugged into the scanner. When its disconnected it will run fine, but when i leave it plugged in, i have issues about once a month. I will be upgrading the pc its running on later this month, so that should cure the small issues.
