150 streams listed as of 05/09/2017

We'll begin 'quality' and 'online' 'audit' next few days...
Yes, the Owenton KY transmitter is busted at the moment...

I've a couple of audio "tags" on server that I may insert instead a feed
if "no broadcast' or very bad quality,  until resolved...

That's cool.  Just a suggestion is to add the type of stream/hardware used, for example a Raspberry Pi/Darkice setup has this much uptime compared to Windows/laptop, desktop, etc so people can see the best options for stream reliability, at least for those who give that information.

Actually, just did an audit... I've 'inactivated' 18 streams... most are temporary, I hope.. .for example at least two are for transmitter issues.... a couple for extremely lousy content...
there's no difference in percentage between Pi or other types.. about even across the spectrum... most are simply due to folks not paying attention and checking once in awhile, in my opinion... also about even perceentages from 'our' icecast, virsus other sources.  About 6 or so appear to have simply lost audio from the receiver... stream still active, but no audio.
There are about 5 which I think maybe we just ought to 'unlist' since they appear to have consistent 'down time', but again I think that's operators problems not software or platform..

A bigger irritation to me, personally, is the variation in audio levels between stations.... a lot of the extremely low, or extremely loud streams are from 'direct access' or being 'ripped' from other sources, rather than from the folks following this board... and/or streaming through Chris' Icecast.

Hi Steve...
Yes, it is re-enabled.  The stream had been offline when an audit was done earlier this week...

Thanks very much. Not sure when it went off line. We've had quite of bit of severe weather lately and the wxradio stream has been been getting quite a bit of activity. Thanks for putting your site together.

Thanks for Joining it! Save a life!
No... I try to 'run through' the streams every week or so, if I have time.. if I catch a dead or bad stream, I note it and go back and check it later that day, or the next, before I 'flag' it... I think it was dead afternoon of the 9th and then again early AM on the 10th. Then I try to check any I've disabled the next day, or later that day.  So I suspect yours was off until at least the night of the 10th. I don't remember if the feed itself was dead, or just the audio... WXK36 was still on the air, however.  I'll attempt to pay more attention to 'what died' next time I run through them, if I can determine that... might help somebody if they had a problem frequently

I guess that is one good thing about living in the middle of no place. Not much demand on the weather radio stream. I think I have had a max of like 3 at once so far. and I could say that the hits are most likely coming from me.

 Its still neat that I am helping (even if its like .1%)

Right now, I'd say 3 at once ain't too shabby!  Considering that the page is just now showing up in search engines, the world isn't really aware it's available, Wunderground screwed a whole TON of pages and stream lists, and a lot of folks who might have used them may have 'quit searching'... there are scads of web pages still out there trying to link to Wunderweenies feeds... and scores of 'dead feeds' on various 'major' sites like TunedIn, Streema, etc...
Think about it a moment... this community and a handful of directly involved 'staff' have provided or searched out 151 listings!  And as a few minutes ago, only 8 were 'not active'...

The Neah Bay experimental direct audio feed from Seattle WFO has been removed from the player list, at least temporarily.  There are a small number of 'feeds' listed that may be removed since they appear to be 'permanently' dead or 'unattended' for some time.

If anyone needs to add, change or update a feed, or notify us otherwise, there's the form on the site that can be used, it goes to 3 of us who monitor the site and the available scripts for your sites...
an additional 'report' form for bad or dead links, comments, etc is forthcoming.... if I ever get time. :roll:

Scott G and Innisfil Weather brings Collingwood EC Radio online
and becomes listed stream # 155 as of 05/31/2017
Need more EC, Alaska, etc...

Number 156 on the station player would be National Hurricane Center's Seasonal Tropical Storm audio,
assuming it's activated tomorrow (June 1) currently running in 'test' mode

Awesome!  Have you kept track of listener count or site views?  I suppose that might be hard to do.  I installed something called Piwik (https://piwik.org) on my Icecast server to keep track of site view history, it's free and not too hard to install on Ubuntu Linux.
