Modifications to Audio Archives 

- Click Here -
I've been tinkering around in the audio section a bit.

First, please notice the new satellite coordinates for First Amendment Radio Network. Any of you who may pull the signal from the bird, understand that the service on Galaxy 13 is being discontinued at the end of this month. Service is already up and available on IA5 (formally Telstar 5), Frequency: 11836, Symbol Rate: 20.770, Polarization: Vertical, PID: 62, Right Channel audio.

If you would like to listen and don't have equipment, you can get a reasonably priced system here.

Secondly, regarding the changes to our audio section, I am adding support for a new player to our daily broadcasts.

Starting with the June 20th broadcast, I am making available streaming in WinAmp format. This is something that I've been wanting to do for quite some time now.

I am seriously thinking about phasing out Real Audio on all of my projects, including SL. I am very unhappy with Real Networks spyware practices. I have gotten to the point where I don't want any of their junk on my own computers or my server.

All of the audio files that we post are in mp3 format, and have been for some time. The mp3 format is widely supported by all players, so even if folks don't wish to use WinAmp, they can always download the files to their hard drives and continue using Real Player, Windows Media Player, or any other player of their choice.

For now, we'll support both players; in the future, that may change.
