Well, here it is. The long awaited video on my little AM radio station.
I've been promising to upload a video about this little radio station that I've been running since late 1998 for ever.
In my old house I lived in a small town and I actually had a pretty good audience. Up here in the mountains, I doubt anyone is listening, but for whatever reason I still really enjoy the idea of running my own radio station. "Mad dog" and "Rockin Woodie" put on dozens of live shows back in the day, inviting guests on the air with the two of us as well as doing phone interviews. It was a great time to be alive, and the two of us still chat about the station during it's peak.
Like all good things the live shows dwindled down as life grew more complex and these days the station puts out mostly re-runs of the older shows mixed in with a strong collection of Coast to Coast re-runs.
Still, everyonce and a while Old "Mad Dog" will fire up the mic and do a live broadcast of
This video shows the tools I use to put my Hamilton Range Master on the air. An old laptop, a Radio Shack mixer board and the 1670 transmitter all work together to put out about a 1 to 1 1/2 mile range. "Take Back The Airwaves" and join me and "Rockin Woody" on the air!
