KSLC ZLC feed very quiet

The volume on most feeds for ZLC is very low, can it be turned up?

Thanks for the feedback. I turned up the volume on the feed. Let me know how it sounds, and if I need turn it up some more.

I had lowered it a bit to try to solve an audio bleed-through issue I have been having with audio from other scanners being heard quietly in the background. Hopefully I have that issue solved so turning up the audio levels doesn't bring it back.

Thanks for listening!

My brother and I tried an AT125 Bearcat scanner on our KORK feed the other day and simply does not have the volume necessary to work with liveatc.  I bought it from Radio Shack.  Pretty good sound and sensitivity with sony earphones, but inadequate as a feed scanner.  Anybody have any thoughts about increasing the sound volume online with that small handheld?  Had to resort to a 1990 Radio Shack handheld scanner to get the adequate volume to sound halfway decent at KORK.

Also, would someone in Paris, Texas, confirm a controller from Fort Worth Center talking on 134.475 and 133.55? Heard aircraft on both freqs yesterday at KFSM.  Also heard the new ultra-high in use for KMLC, 128.125, being used quite a bit as well as 135.45--aircraft only.  ZFW is using some new ultra-high freqs in the Paris, TX to MLC corridor. 

Thanks for the ZLC feed, BTW.  Any thoughts on boosting the sound on a Bearcat AT125 scanner online would be appreciated.  Is it possible?  Got to be a way as it has UHF aircraft frequency capability on it( that does not cost $500).  Remember when Sporty's put that handheld out that had aircraft VHF/UHF capability?  Real good price and I wish I had purchased six of them.  Darn shame they stopped production.  All Radio Shack has now is $400 plus VHF/UHF handheld scanners now.  The Uniden Bearcat sounds good at airshows with the Sony ear buds, BTW.  Great UHF sound at KTIK.

I need somebody in Paris, Texas to confirm that the ZFW controller is talking there on 134.475 and 133.55.  I know for a fact that a ZFW controller is talking on 132.2, 135.45 and 128.125 at KMLC.  Heard it personally.
