Hi & welcome to the RR forums:
There are over 7,000 feeds online as of this posting and I'm certain it is impossible to police them all. Though you have to tick a number of check boxes upon applying for a feed not everybody abides by every term and condition...

87360

So basically if you hear something, say something...

in my county, when something big happens that i think should be on a tac channel...
they leave it on the dispatch channel and have other units move to a secondary dispatch channel.
so the "phone" people are treated to all the happenings.
it also leads to a constant "unit XXX back from lunch" in the middle of it and then is told to move to dispatch X
which leads to tying up the channel with unnecessary talking than ever.
and there is no "channel in use" tone !

so could that be what has happened ?

negative. local incident dispatch advised all units working this incident to move to tac 2 this feed provider has all tacs programmed not the first time he feeds tac channels to his feed

VERIFY that it is indeed a TAC channel. If alpha tags say TAC, report it. If a department uses a main dispatch channel for TAC, it is not the feed providers responsibility.

I think this whole issue has been blown out of proportion - are they tac or interop. All of the channels listed in my county as tac are really interop - used by multiple agencies

Two of the three feeds in my county have dropped off due to this issue, not that I really listen anyway but this issue of tac channels really needs to be addressed

My two cents worth
