Since I first tried the text to speech tools a couple years ago they appear to have much improved.

Good sound quality and the pronunciations are not terrible, so they’re easy to understand. I stuck a foreign language translation into it and now I have a foreign lanuage station ID.

I’m in a congested, urban environment. I really couldn’t see the signal going more than a few blocks.
How are you getting your signal to the second transmitter?
Experimented with another transmitter build and I’m having trouble tuning it. As a result I bought one of the last new Talking House transmitters I could find.
The Talking House should be broadcast ready next week. And I should be on the air several hours a day to start.
Additionally, I successfully got an IceCast server running to stream the…[Read more]
Is anyone using Raspberry Pi for any portion of their Part 15 stations? I did a search for a thread on the Pi and saw nothing. Just curious what successes there are, if any. Most of the software I see for Part 15 use is Windows based, and I’m not sure a Pi would run Windows very well.

This interests me. Please provide a couple of sample links to eliminate guesswork on what might work.
Original news content by Radio Phvern, confirmation by Radio Phvern on the request by a fire board for a new 9/11 investigation.

I need some input on how much time would be need to be devoted to commercial break or station ID. I’m thinking 9-12 min of actual talk time. Only crafting and brainstorming the idea right now. Ma…[Read more]
I started another Part 15 station project. New transmitter. Not entirely new ideas but I think I will make this station portable. Not sure yet. I won’t call it something different. Same website as last time.
A year passed from the prior one concluding and I missed it. Also updated my ham license to General and it made me think about it all…[Read more]
Instead of starting a movement, I would like to see us lobby Congress for low-power broadcasting on the upper AM band (as it was suggested in another thread). Keep it to 1-watt, etc, like it was suggested. I bet it would open up a whole new era for radio and keep the medium alive, out of big-business hands.
Do a series of tests over a week. Differing times of day. Before sunset, after, noon, whatever.
Keep a log, and then keep it for later reference. The tests are a due diligence on your part. State time, etc. and any power or levels much like a ham operator would do. Record what you know and observe.
Essentially I did this for my Radio Phve…[Read more]
