Hi Tim, don’t know if you got my email a week or so ago. It was to let you know we are running Oompah Hour on a new Live365 station-Fifth Dimension Radio. I emailed to let you know.
In addition to keeping The ALPB site updated with Oompah Hour, I’m still running the show on my Part15 AM 1500.
As always, thanks for all the work you do to put t…[Read more]
Well Tim, yes it seems the activity is down but like a roller coaster, it has it’s ups and downs.
I’m still updating The ALPB website with each and every new Ooompah show and would certainly miss it.

There are EAS systems for much less although still pricey.
Our LPFM used an EAS by Dasdec. Cost was around $3k. Has 3 internal receivers with room for 4. Has both analog and AES audio capability. Logs all EAS events including CAP. Stores audio clips of events and fully programmable for type of event to forward.
