As we all know tech advances have made radio stations easier to manage and more economical whilst at the same time providing a multitude of different ways to make great radio. Until that is ‘something’ goes wrong.
So much can ‘fall over’, hard drives, playout systems, music schedulers, IP connections, sound cards streaming plus physical faults on desks mics and cables etc.
Recently one station contacted LRS to say “I need help, right now we are looking for a broadcast system engineer, do you know anyone based in London who can help us for one day….?” We responded and sent one of our engineers in. A couple of hours (not a full day) later all problems were resolved.
By being an LRS member station you can always get in touch with us and we’ll do all we can to assist. You’ll be asked to cover an engineer’s time and expenses of course but like with so many things you’ll pay less through LRS.
We can help with initial builds too, ensuring your kit is set up properly and therefore reducing the need for future emergency situations.
If you are already an LRS member this is a reminder that we’re here to help when you need us. [MORE]
