radio feeds quality?
« on: April 14, 2015, 10:43:48 AM »
I have been very slowly working on building another audio server. The server will be located at a location remote from the current site to help improve quality. goal will be 8 feeds from new site.
Current status
antenna installed.
12v Power installed need to update 110v at some point 
8 radios
8 audio ground isolators
2 hubs (4 sound cards each)
Ups for power.
Need to finish custom audio cables
computers are doa so need to order something.

Would like to move the boro feeds over and then rebuild the current site

Made some progress on the project. The Manhattan ems feed is running from the new server. Using this feed as a test but everything seems to be running good.

The radio feed for Brooklyn is all loud static, but when I change to Scanner the boros are OK including bklyn ??   this has been happening for 2 days now.

 Running these feeds takes a lot of TIME and MONEY. I once took a picture of the set up involved to run this feed operation. I had no idea of the amount of equipment involved. If I remember correctly, the building even had an alarm system on it. Simply put... a lot of $$$.

 Now I understand there is a newer set up. I'm sure that wasn't cheap either. Trying to keep us happy and satisfied customers is really a very expensive business. Maybe I'm wrong but I think you need a separate radio for each frequency. As I look at the picture I have, those radios are on a metal shelf about six feet high. The four or five shelves are completely full with radio equipment.

  So besides raising a family and holding down a fulltime job, "Tbendick" provides us distant foreigners, out of radio range, with this service, PLUS this web site. "I don't think I could do that, even if I wanted to".

  So if it's okay with "Tbendick", anybody who wants to post that picture for me, send me your cell phone number and you can post it here. That way we can all get an idea of the equipment involved. A lot more than I expected.

Tom, The Brooklyn Feed is down but also on the Bravest so I think it might be a problem with Broadcastify / Radio Reference

The feeds on the Scanner on the site are all OK.
