Trying to figure this stuff out. I sort of have the streaming down even if sdrtrunk is pretty heavy on my old windows 8 laptop and I have to keep restarting it every 2 hours or so(program not computer).

On the recent page for CLRMN I see Law-Tac tgids being streamed(?) but when I go to click on it, it says only the streamer or admin can view it. Why is that?

Also, is there another program that's better on older computers than sdrtrunk? I was looking into the trunk recorder, but i don't understand how to make it work.

Broadcastify Calls makes available to call ingest providers ALL calls they send to us, but limits public access to calls covered by our Feed Provider Terms of Service

Trunking Recorder or Trunk-Recorder? Two completely separate programs. Trunking Recorder runs on Windows, whereas Trunk-Recorder runs on Linux. Trunking Recorder does not do any decoding on its own, instead it relies on either Unitrunker or SDRTrunk to provide decoded audio. Trunk-Recorder, on the other hand, has a built in decoder based on OP25.

Ahh that's what I was thinking but I wanted clarification. Thank you.

Does trunking recorder need the unitrunker to save the audio calls before it uploads it? SDRTrunk is to heavy for my crappy laptop to stream

Unitrunker decodes the audio while Trunking Recorder records it and streams it in real-time. The exact setup depends on what version of Unitrunker you're running, what type of system you're decoding, and to some extent, whether you're feeding it to BCFY Calls or to a traditional BCFY live stream. Just keep in mind that Unitrunker is not capable of decoding P25 Phase II (TDMA) audio, only Phase I (FDMA).

I didn't know that. I thought the V2 was able to decode TDMA audio. My state system is p2 so I'll have to make sure it can do it.

No version of Unitrunker can decode Phase II talkgroups.

To feed to BCFY Calls? No. The supported software is listed on the page I linked previously.
