Web Radio 

To the uninitiated, it seems like quite a challenge to get a station's Internet stream up and running. With questions about royalties, content, owners and streaming sponsors, it's more involved than plugging a studio feed into a media encoder.

WILQ rebuilds transmitter site 

In the wee hours of the morning the logging truck was hot-wired and taken for a ride on top of Bald Eagle Mountain, the location of WILQ's transmitter site. The driver proceeded to drive the truck straight through the front of the building, using the front door as a target.

Waiting for the dust to settle before committing to an HD Radio transmission system? This should help.

WCFB rebuilds: Temporary Facilities 

Getting back on the air was the first priority. Once that was accomplished, steps were taken to improve the temporary facilities.

WCFB rebuilds: Optimizing the Antenna 

After the dust had settled on getting WCFB on air at a temporary site, the task of selecting a new antenna for the permanent installation began.

WCFB rebuilds after a tornado 

A borderline F3/F4 tornado had cut a path across WCFB's transmitter property, directly hitting the building and 1,500' tower, bringing it to the ground. The building and everything in it was a total loss and it was going to be a long recovery process.

IP-based STLs 

Many of the devices we find in a broadcast facility today communicate by way of IP; what was once kind of a luxury (LAN at the transmitter site) has now pretty much become a necessity.

New Hampshire Public Radio 

Although the timeline for the construction project was to be on the air from the new facility by Dec. 31, 2008, in an almost unheard of turn of events, NHPR originated its first broadcast from the facility at 2 p.m. on Dec. 15.

Keep an Eye Out 

Whether or not you use video surveillance at your station will largely depend on how secure you need the facility to be, compared to what you are willing to invest. The benefits of using video surveillance can speak for themselves in terms of reducing the chance of experiencing lost air time.

IP remotes: Instantly Practical 

Learning how to use IP codecs takes a little time and may require some patience on your part. Using IP codecs for remotes can provide some excellent results.

Fuel Cells 

Battery technology hasn't kept up with the advancements in technology of the myriad of portable devices available now. Wouldn't it be great to have an alternative power source that was easily portable (unlike a generator), that worked day or night (unlike solar cells)?
