We have learnt quite a lot over the past couple of weeks and one of the main things is that you need a good connection to the internet to run a radio station and the one we have been using has been letting us down quite badly, we really need to find a company that offers better services, like eatelbusiness.com.
We have taken steps to rectify this situation but when dealing with communications companies these things take time as they are never in a rush to get something installed for you.
We are having 2 new broadband connections installed in 2 different locations, we will run 2 seperate instances of the broadcast software from these 2 locations which will give us some resilience, we will also have another instance of the broadcast software installed on a machine that will be used as a final backup that can be brought into action should the other 2 connections fail for any reason.
We have now also sorted out how DJs and Presenters can connect into the system from their own homes using their own laptop/PC to do live shows and of course there is also the option for a show to be prerecorded for broadcast at a later date.
We will be sending out an em,ail over the next few days to all of those who expressed an interest in presenting a show on the station advising them of various free software options that they can use and also hardware options should they wish to get more fully involved.
