It’s always fun to see your favorite radio station at an event around town.
Some stations have their big broadcast vans with a large satellite dishes mounted to the roof, others may record sound bites remotely and then send them to their studios, and some stations (soon to include KRTU) utilize the latest in remote broadcast technology: IP.
Rather than taking the path of sending audio through the atmosphere or subjecting our listeners to cell phone-quality audio, KRTU is acquiring cutting edge remote broadcast technology!
Our new remote broadcast equipment will allow us to broadcast and control our radio station from nearly any location, as reliably as any of your mobile devices, through a secure internet-based server.
We can now pack KRTU into a suitcase and send Music Director, and chief announcer, Kory Cook with his microphone to [fill in the blank location]. Listeners all over the San Antonio area will be able to compare the real life Kory Cook with how they always imagined him to look (#radiovoice).
This equipment also gives us the ability to broadcast live from concerts and festivals, such as the annual Jazz’SAlive event in Travis Park.
This significant upgrade and community outreach is made possible thanks to a generous grant from the John L. Santikos Charitable Foundation, a fund of the San Antonio Area Foundation.
Starting this spring - look for KRTU in your neighborhood!
