Hey all,

 

Time for me to consult wiser heads.

 

We’re running a purely Internet radio station (Keys for Kids Radio) out of our office building, and over the weekend we lost power, which killed the station for a few hours.

 

It also showed me that we don’t have adequate monitoring in place to alert us if the station’s gone kaput and stopped sending audio to our Christian Netcast server or lost connection to the server.

 

So my question is, (if you’re streaming audio online), what are you doing at your stations to monitor both the data connection of your streaming computer to your “broadcast” server and to be sure it’s actually sending audio as well?

 

We’re working on a fundraising plan that will allow us to install a generator. Fingers crossed! (and knees bowed in prayer!!!)
