January 18: 2 pm: We have started webcasting from Flat Bay
with recorded music until our FM broadcast begins at 10 am on Thursday.
It should be stressed that we are webcasting
from a rural area - we try to ensure that even dial up
listeners are supported so we use a highly compressed
mono audio stream.
Think of the webcast as a rural pub.
There is limited room inside (our bandwidth)
so you may have to wait until somebody
leaves before you can get in.
