Does anyone here use Play It Live broadcast program and if so when you go into settings to change time format, fade and silence detect, display light or dark etc, how do you apply settings? When exiting it just reverts to default. Thinking of switching from Zara. No box for applying settings. Free version.
A good post. Found interesting about the part about these imported(Chinese) transmitters that operate OK at first but after awhile start to get more dirty and cause interference to aviation etc, as Thelegacy found out.
Like the part about the cracking down on the uncertified imported transmitters but I don’t think he looks on amazon! It should…[Read more]
Based on my communication with industry Canada and being read the riot act and shown in writing in the rules, any transmitter can’t be used here unless it is in the Industry Canada radio equipment certification look up section. I even gave an example….the Talking House transmitter, with FCC certification, no license needed, and operating the…[Read more]
In response to Tim’s post…..absolutely amazing that the stream server can do all this! And know your computer’s operating system?, mind boggling.
At least all the work of keeping a log is done for you, at a cost I presume.
“Finally, it’s not really the money involved with streaming that bothers me. I streamed for years under a SOCAN non-commercial license (which included streaming) for a small, fixed fee. But now, you have to keep meticulous records of who listens to what, when and how, and calculate royalties based on listener impressions (I want t…[Read more]
Artisan said “Maybe I’ll just give up the idea of streaming. It all seems more trouble than what it’s worth, particularly since I’m usually only the listener”.
Yes, if you go to the painstaking and very time consuming task of research to compile a playlist of public domain stuff. And it is complicated. And then I would ask does that allow strea…[Read more]
I see your point and agree there.
I watch TV shows on youtube like Bonanza(full episodes) etc and I was watching Gunsmoke for a while every night and suddenly the many full episodes that were there recently disappeared! Only excerpts still are there. Was this a copyright thing that happened? Yet other shows from the 50s 60s and 70s are all still…[Read more]
In comment to your first point, What if the writer is alive? Should “Yesterday” be public domain? Should everything Brian Wilson and Mike Love(Beach Boys) wrote now be public domain? What about the hundreds of hit songs Carole King wrote in the 50s and 60s? And 70s. She’s still alive and well.
What if say, James Taylor, to pull a name out of a…[Read more]
I sort of agree and disagree at the same time.
Take the Carole King song “One Fine Day” that was performed by the Chiffons. Now the writer and the performer have made their money, right. But even though the song was written close to 60 years ago, a new crop of people could still buy the record or what if the song was used in a commercial now,…[Read more]

I think that’s amazing! How many gigs is this using?
Wouldn’t even fit on some lower priced computers with solid state or flash storage.
The computer I use for broadcasting is a HP entry level with, I think 40 gigs with solid state(not hard drive) and windows 10 and the other things are taking up some of that.
My 120 hours playlist(3300 things…[Read more]
When TV came, radio’s most successful era was still to come. The coming of the transistor and portable radios along with a new music…..the coming of rock and roll and the hit parade in the mid fifties led to the most popular era for radio, the late fifties and most of all, the sixties. It stood toe to toe with TV. some of the radio dramas…[Read more]

Guy in video isn’t that knowledgeable about this but here’s more info…..
Here’s a transmitter that seems half decent and has been completely overlooked! FCC part 15 certified and still in production and available on Amazon and Ebay. Very affordable!!
You tube videos show good sound quality.
Operates on batteries and has input jack for other audio source and can swap crystals for different…[Read more]
Mark replied to the topic A Strong legal Home Transmitter for my Stream Station in the forum Broadcast Equipment 1 month ago
Do you want AM or FM? Assume since it’s your home stereo it’s FM
With FM, if legal all will be operating at the same power if at the max allowed.
I assume you are in the USA. The legal(certified) FM transmitters are the CCrane(a little underpowered out of the box), Wholehouse 3, ACC-100 from Progressive Concepts, Broadcastvision FMT, and the…[Read more]
Like how you said the Ramsey’s one by one conked out! That is because the output chip they all used was the GAL-5 that was very susceptable to any electrical shocks from your finger if touching it or going near it with static electricity. Whether it was on or off! I had a Ramsey 25B way back when I started doing this(didn’t know it wasn’t legal at…[Read more]
You are right it will never happen. At least Michelle knows not to ask for the moon and to take “baby steps”. Asking for the equivalent of BETS-1 in Canada is more realistic and the idea of the expanded FM band down to 81.1 and a portion of this for hobby radio is good. Like New Zealand. If the band is officially expanded the radios would be made…[Read more]

Greetings from Washington, DC. I did spend the day at the FCC in various meetings. I did have one meeting with Chairman Pai’s advisor on media issues. During these types of meetings, I normally express in…[Read more]
This article was written some years ago.
I’ve said it and will say it again, it will be the end of part 15/bets-1…our hobby.
That is if it goes 100% like TV and the bands are reallocated.
This is not happening or in the future plan to happen as of now.
