Been offline for weeks yet has not been removed from the feed list. Is it coming back on for a few hours and then being taken offline again just so the provider can get Premium for free? Seems that way to me!
Yeah i think the same thing is going on here.
See my thread at:http://forums.radioreference.com/live-audio-listener-support/284236-anyone-know-who-runs-feed.html
Just so happens that after i posted the thread, the feed has been up since then. You would think the admin would catch this and require them to keep the feed going unless they have a major problem or lose membership status. Why should they get free membership just because they provide a feed that is only up long enough to keep the membership? I think its unfair myself. Makes me want to get a feed started for a free membership so i can shop the for sale forums. Work good for me since i only bring my laptop out when i need it. Everything else i do on my phone.
Just a note, if a feed is offline all premium features are disabled. I have noticed this when my power/cable has failed while at work and I can't use any premium features until the feed comes back up or until I return home and restore it. However I don't know how or when this would effect account billing.
I do occasionally see a feed which actually states it is not a full-time feed, which I thought was a requirement.
I think I have seen a few feeds that were broadcasting an "Incident" and the archives clearly showed that the "incident" was all that was there, so the feed was brought on-line just for the incident. Sometimes they would mention they were only on when something was going on where they were located.
I was happy they could do this personally so maybe some "free lancing" is allowed under these situations.
So, our favorite feed has now gone offline at 10:27 on 2-21, came back online from 9:45 to 10:04 pm and then again from 11:26 to 11:37 on 2-22-14 and hasn't been seen since. I wish this guy would just give up already.
I'm not trying to stick up for anyone but I provide 2 feeds. One of my feeds is always up, the other has a "habit" of dropping out a lot. not everyday but a lot. We have disabled auto updates and a number of other things. Mind you they are on the same network, hoever 2 seperate computers. . Maybe it's a siliar situation? I know that it is not just frustrating for people listening but me as well. There is nothing I would like better than to solve the problem.
