i received a message from the scannewbedford.com – report an issue form. it seems like the feed went down, but what had really happened was the scanner was not getting any audio on those frequencies. the scanner was still running and nothing had changed there. the pc that broadcasts the audio was online and sending the feed to broadcastify. i checked a few hours later and the audio came back on.
there might have been technical difficulties with new bedford police dispatch. i cannot confirm this. but the feed is back up and running. enjoy!
personal thanks to Mike who had reported this to me.
