Re: [WISPA] FM Remote Broadcast over Wireless (RBOW ?)

The radio station that I get space from was ready to do that from one of the 
DJ's houses in my coverage area.


I agree with your thoughts below.  The tough part for me (and why I 
eventually talked them out of the idea) is that our noise levels and 
competition competence levels are not conducive to perfect service in the 
area in question.


But sure, it should work just fine as long as all other parameters normally 
stay normal!

Subject: [WISPA] FM Remote Broadcast over Wireless (RBOW ?)


I've been asked if an FM broadcast station can broadcast from a remote 
(non-studio) location by putting the audio over an existing license-free 
wireless network to connect back to the main studio. On the surface of it, 
I don't see why this wouldn't work as long as:


1. The wireless network is reliable, and
2. The remote FM audio stream can be converted to a half-duplex stream of 
Ethernet packets.


Does anyone know of someone who has done this successfully and, if so, 
what equipment was used on both the audio and RF networks?


Thanks in advance,
   jack

RE: [WISPA] FM Remote Broadcast over Wireless (RBOW ?)

2006-06-05 Thread Rick Harnish
We have a radio station streaming from mutually collocated tower across our
backhaul.  The backhaul is running Star-OS on War Boards.  We had a few
issues when they were streaming direct from the tower to their clients.
They now send one stream to an offsite server which then serves their
clients from a more stable connection.  I assume it is in a datacenter on
fiber.  They blocked access to the collocated streamer from all IP's except
the server address.  This way they are only running one stream instead of
dozens.  It is an AM station.  You can listen to it at http://www.wadm.com/.
Enjoy if you like country music.

Jeromie,

Don't know budget or bitrate but I'll pass the Winamp/Shoutcast 
suggestion along.


THANKS!

You could just convert to an IP stream and then convert back

Hi Jack,TheseareknownasStudioTransmitterLinks, and we've planned a few for our local radio conglomerates as the licensed 950 MHz STL space is rapidly melting down (who'd ever guess there could be so much interference in a licensed band!). Unlicensed is fine in many cases, but butanycommercialstationwithadvertisingdollarsatstakeshould look at licensed links and definitely needs fast-failovertoISDN,DSL,etc with adaptive codecs. 
Contact me off-list for more.Best,-- Dylan OliverPrimaverity, LLC

Not sure what software they are using, but I provide a backup STL for a 
local FM station over my wireless network. I know they are running PCs 
on both ends and a proprietary software package on the PCs. If you need 
more information let me know and I'll ask the station manager.
