Unfortunately I wasn’t able to tune into your virtual shortwave station but i was able to play with Hamsphere a little bit more. I nearly forgotten about the account i had there.
Also a couple things came to mind when reading this thread.
1) i seem to recall (sort of) a station in California years ago that was fully licensed but created the illusion they were a pirate radio operation by adding noise to their audio chain (on purpose). Even the liners and ID’s sounded a bit rough too. I wish i could remember the stations location and call letters. (not to be confused with the clear channel stunt a few years ago)
2) http://www.rock957.net is a home hosted website. I am running streaming and a webserver on the same machine. I wanted to brush up on my hosting and tech skills but found it too expensive to buy a dedicated server . The webserver is Apache (WAMP), the stream server is Steamcast, the encoder is Edcast (now defunct) and I am using the free dns services of dnsexit.com.
So far so good. I have installed php, mysql and security features. There is more work to follow but things have been very busy here lately so I have not had much time for anything else.
Here it is nearly Winter and I still have not worked on my FM antenna.
Oh well, it’s all good.
