If you’re operating everything above board, then why do you need an Elite section?
Why does Hobbybroadcaster operate behind closed doors?
It only gives the impression that you (and they) have something to hide.
I can understand why the ALPB Business Board is behind closed doors (it makes sense that you need to be a member to see and participate…[Read more]
1) Folders can be anywhere. External drives, USB flash drives, SD cards, etc.
2) Yes, you set up a playlist that plays a random song from the specific folder, and set Zara to ‘repeat’. It will cycle through, continuing to play random songs from that folder, until another event occurs. So you would set up an event to, say, start playing that pa…[Read more]
The correct word is rogue, not ‘rouge’ (which is French for red). It’s difficult to take people seriously with those kinds of errors in communication.
I personally don’t have a problem with individuals, inside the hobby or out, that report rule violators. I don’t have the time or inclination to do so, but obviously others have lots of time a…[Read more]
There’s usually a Buy It Now or something similar in Itunes, Amazon, etc..
But what these guys really mean is ‘License it for an undetermined period of time, until we decide that we want more money, after which we’ll take it away and force you to pay again if you still want it.’ Unfortunately, that won’t fit on the button. So they lie.
Here’s another example of what ‘advances’ the digital age is bringing to us all.
To make a long article short, you can purchase an e-book (or song, or whatever) on itunes, and if the licensing terms change between Apple and the provider, that e-book…[Read more]
Europe just passed a measure to censor the entire Internet. Essentially, all uploads can go through copyright filters and be blocked instantaneously – you’ll have to fight to get them published.
Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?
Whatever happened to freedom of expression?
The Europeans make the repeal of net neutrality by the…[Read more]
Part 15 AM signals degrade much differently than FM. An FM signal tends to be there with little noise, and then goes away rather quickly. Noise and static is introduced into an AM signal rather quickly, and then grows linearly until the noise drowns out the programming.
I can understand the quest for the holy grail of audio processing for l…[Read more]
There’s absolutely no excuse for the graphics and insults on their website. It certainly doesn’t make them seem very professional, at least from my point of view. Maybe, as Tim pointed out, they feel this is the new ‘professional’ in this age of political turmoil, and its part of who they’re marketing to. But if I were a business, I wouldn’t wa…[Read more]
While VAC and other programs can handle differing sampling rates, it’s generally advisable to keep them similar throughout the chain. If they’re different, you have to convert; conversion takes up CPU cycles and potentially can degrade a signal. It may not make much difference with some programming genres (such as the voice based ones), and p…[Read more]
If one read the comments from this pirate station after being reported to the FCC, you might think that they were somewhat remorseful. They claimed that they were unaware of the rules, and had been advised by a former member of the FCC.
Well, I think that that is now questionable. In some of their comments to the Williamson newspaper article r…[Read more]
Not sure I quite agree with the notion about the worth of CQUAM. Sometimes the best technical solutions don’t win out in the general marketplace. It could be price, it could be just plain marketing, such as launching the product.
I look to Beta as the perfect example. Technically, it was far superior to VHS, but the latter surpassed it be…[Read more]
As this article points out, a lot of music was originally mixed in mono, and was meant to be heard that way.
Never mind early 60s music from the Beatles, everything released on 45, 78 and most albums from the 50s and earlier had a mono mix.
Micro broadcasting in mono makes a lot of sense. Range is greater for FM mono vs FM stereo, particularly…[Read more]
Apple devices have their issues as well. There is a price to be paid for having one company control virtually everything, from hardware, O/S and even some apps.
For example, IOS app developers literally CAN’T develop an alternative browser to Safari. Well, they can, but it has to go on top of the core services of Safari. If Safari doesn’t su…[Read more]
Android is very unstable compared to IOS. I do prefer Android for playing around on, but even I recently got an iPhone 8 to use as my primary cell phone – I just got tired of all the various unresolved Android issues (which vary from phone to phone).
