I had the very busy local feed (24 channels) running here for a couple
of months and it seemed perfectly happy. So I think the system may be
more stable than one might suspect.
I may go to Broadcastify, but they don't want you to stream TAC
talkgroups, and I'd like to include those (quiet as they are) for the
couple of local departments I listen to. So for now, anyway, I'm just
streaming locally with Icecast.
(Does the Broadcastify DarkIce install as a Debian package, or does it
do an out-of-dpkg install? I wanted to stay with .debs wherever possible.)
