Hello just wondering why the Pinellas County Feed is up and down the last few week`s?
There are two Pinellas County public safety feeds. You didn't specify which one but I'm guessing it is the Fire & EMS feed since it is currently down. Feeds are provided by local volunteers with scanners, so usually only the feed provider knows why his/her feed is offline. Possible reasons include internet connectivity issues, power outages, and problems with hardware. You could use the Contact Broadcaster link on the feed's web page to ask your question. But there's no guarantee that asking for the reason is going to get the problem resolved any sooner.

Anyone know if the Fire/EMS feed will come back (hopeful)

Hello! I bought a LimeSDR in July as a paternity leave project (I was hoping to decode an FHSS video baby monitor on my computer). After the wifey was a little sketched out due to some police shining flashlights in our backyard, I sought out a way to listen to the police channels. I, too, found the Pinellas County feed totally silent, so I learned to set up trunk-recorder w/ my Lime to monitor the Pinellas County System. I just learned I can upload all these calls to Broadcastify, and have done so here: Broadcastify

I'm not very familiar with the difference between Broadcastify Calls and Feeds, though. Is it possible to have my uploaded Calls broadcasted as an audio Feed alongside these listings?

Glad to hear it. I'm still learning (read: I don't know anything) about reducing the error/spike counts in trunk-recorder, or where to place the antenna (it's on my windowsill), and I'm not sure I've got coverage over all the control channels... but it works well in the car, and I've always got stories to bring home :p
