Hello,

I reviewed my feed archive on 4/16 due to an early morning incident and noticed that there was a 20-minute gap right about the time it would have been toned out for. Is there a way to determine if there was a request to have it removed? All my streaming equipment is working as far as I can tell, and my computer didn't restart during that time. My feed ID is 42359. Thanks!

There was never any request to remove any archives, and we don't do so unless it's an archive file(s) that contains audio from someone's microphone and the feed provider themselves contacts us in a panic because they were beating their wife, or having an affair with someone, or they were watching porn, or some other highly sensitive audio was inadvertently recorded.

The most likely explanation is that the feed briefly dropped offline during that time frame, or there was some technical problem that prevented us from recording during that brief time. It happens sometimes. Maybe you just got home from work and looked at your computer wrong and it decided it was going to get back at you, or maybe our server decided to stick it to you in particular for 20 minutes.

Someone posted something about live streaming and to make everybody happy, a state (or couple) made legal streaming provides there was such a delay.
Could that be the case ?

I don't think so merlin, the ~90 second delay has always been there like on the other feeds. Which I don't mind the delay at all; if I want to hear something right now I can either just listen in on another scanner or pull up the feed off Radiofeed's built-in webserver over my LAN.
This was around 20 minutes completely missing right about the time there was a bad MVA north of town. Any other time I probably wouldn't have thought anything of it, but the timing seemed a little suspect. Lindsay's explanation makes sense though. Glitches happen.

Bad MVA. Any poles involved? If yes probably an internet or power drop on the internet side.

It didn't look like it- we drove through the area this past Sunday and there aren't any power poles in the general area it was supposed to have happened. Which was the reason I was going to the archives, to see what mile marker it was at. It was a single vehicle MVA.
