It’s official. The mega 100 mW powerhouse had one listener. https://www.instagram.com/p/BXZZ9WIH-B0N__dOkAqB30QYBFMQcI02QAiIis0/
A sound mixer on loan from the Ross Man. Thanks, Ross!
Need it to test the AM radio signal. It should be a digital readout. Doesn’t need to have a work CD player or other gadget. Speakers would be nice too. 😀
The Twitter account is linked to the radio station blog and I’ll only use it as a bot blog going forward
Ok, so two or three CPU’s are in the works now. One is available, one is on stand-by and almost ready, and a third is about to be delivered but needs upgrades. The real problem now is space to set all this up as intended.
Out of necessity I am changing the station concept to be more like a beacon signal and not a standard broadcast format. There have been a number of complications in the last 12 months. Finance to equipment challenges have plagued the idea. Essentially I will burn a CD with limited content and ‘loop’ the audio for broadcast.
Some people have great names for their routers. “Mystery James”. Why do we do that? Might make for an interesting topic to explore.
So a second computer is about to become available with Win 7!
The station PC will run on Ubuntu, or one of its variants.
The donated PC that will run much of the radio station has been acquired and re-conditioned. Softwares are loaded. Some audio catalog needs to be loaded. I hope for a trial run within a couple of weeks.
