When I click on a TGID in the database and I'm directed to the Broadcastify feed page for the TG, I see that the TG was last seen 18 hours ago. This TG is busy 24/7 on a scanner and isn't idle for 18 minutes let alone 18 hours.

Trying to understand how these TG feeds work, do I need a premium subscription or something?

Perhaps the feed wasn't active during the period of time for whatever reason. As these are volunteers who provide the feeds (in most cases) they could go down at any time for a variety of reasons.

Okay, I was just wondering because I tried a few different ones and got pretty much the same thing.
Let me know the system/TGID and I'll look at it for you and see if it says anything different for me.

It appears Coshocton SO is not broadcasting could be an SDR issue, the OSP feed appears to have had the same issue but is now working. Local ones I checked here are working fine.

51530 as well?
Think so as well, but I rarely see that TG used. I run a monitoring program om MARCS and can see which TG's get patched, though I rarely look at it anymore. Ever since they went to the consolidated dispatch it gets complicated.

Okay, I go to the feed page tonight and there are only two OSP feeds and days ago there were like five, and Coshocton SO is no longer available.

My new scanner can't get here soon enough.
