What does it mean when a feed is listed as being offline?

All of the scanner feeds on Broadcastify.com are provided by volunteers, each one using their own computer and scanner radio.  

Whenever a scanner feed is shown as being offline it means that we're not currently receiving audio from the person that volunteered to provide it.  

The person that volunteered to provide the audio for it could be having computer or Internet problems.

There is nothing we can do re this matter. This is a feed owner issue and not a Broadcastify issue.

When we stop receiving audio for a feed an e-mail is automatically sent to the person that volunteered to provide it after it's been down for 15 minutes to make sure they're aware.  Additional e-mails are automatically sent reminding them that their feed is offline after it's been offline for 6 hours, 24 hours, 7 days, and 14 days.  If a feed is offline for 21 days it will automatically be deleted from our catalog.
