    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.

I've set up several railroad radio feeds that I will be looking at adding second radios to in order to split the traffic up between two Class I railroads (CSX and Norfolk Southern) due to the amount of traffic received. What are your all's preferred methods to split? External cable (dual 1/8" mono to single 1/8" stereo) or perhaps using VSTHost or something else software based? Looking for suggestions.

I run 2 scanners for my feed. One monitors law and one fire. I used a mono to stereo cable as you described above. Has run this way for years on a PC and I am now just moving it to a Pi so I can remote mount it at a hilltop station for better coverage.
