the network

We stream to our Shoutcast provider currently using the NBN with 100/40 Bandwidth. This again is planned to be upgraded in the future with funding. Our Shoutcast provider has a 10Gbps Internet connection to enabling us to have over 1000 listeners at anyone time.

the sound

We currently use Station playlist for Song rotation and automation we use that in conjunction with StereoTool for Audio processing. We have spent countless hours setting up and testing our own preset for StereoTool to make it sound perfect on many sound systems.
We made it sound so good in fact we have won two awards for it.

All of this costs alot to maintain and keep going help us keep the station alive by donating today!
