1200 AM BBR

Blue Bucket Radio is back on the air at 1200 kHz with limited range.

Currently the SStran is pumping out heavy metal on 1200 kHz on an indoor antenna due to the unpredictable weather we have here in Kentucky.

Range is of course limited to about 150 to 200 feet around my property, the antenna is a wire that is too long to mount vertically, so it strung up the wall and across the ceiling. It's limited in range, but it IS on the air.

99 cent Fm Wireless Microphones

My wife and I love to shop the thrift stores and we are always on the look out for something unusual or useful.

This month we walked away with two vintage Realistic Fm Wireless Microphones for the sweet price of 99 cents each!
These are the tiny but bulky lapel microphones Radio Shack sold back in the 90's for $19.95 and I never bought one because I couldn't get past the heaviness of this microphone as a lapel mic.

Who Called Me Today?

No, seriously. Who called me today? Was it you Carl ? It was a Wellsville Missouri number.
If not then it was probably a spoofed number trying to sell me something I don't want.
If it was you Carl, call back and I will make it a point to answer the call.
I have been busy cleaning house and missed the ph0ne ringing.

Why did I even set up voice mail if no one uses it? lol

Getting Closer

We are getting closer to the day where Blue Bucket Radio will return to the airwaves on a more permanent basis.
Software has been installed, currently testing Zararadio 1.4.4 running in Windows XP inside of VirtualBox for Linux on a Linux machine running Ubuntu 16.10 LTS on my trusty HP Pavilion Desktop PC.

I might fire up an FM Transmitter tuned to 105.3 FM later today or after I figure out why Zara Satellite won't allow Line In to pass audio from the mixer. Something there isn't clicking, despite the fact that Zara is able to play Mp3's.

Eclipse Radio

Digging up all the studio gear so we can gear up for the return of our show The Little Things Radio Show and eventually the return to the airwaves on 1620 AM and 105.3 FM. Fingers crossed this goes off without a hitch.
