We’re currently using an BT Business Analogue circuit to get our audio from the studio to the transmitter site. I think this was often known as a music link or kilostream circuit - it’s fared us very well over the last decade or so.
The reason why I’ve always loved our private circuit is because it’s very reliable, it’s simply just a pair of wires which is then jumper’d to a pair of wires at the TX site - we simply send audio down the wires and out audio pops at the other end.
Now, BT are ceasing these circuits in 2020 (in my experience with BT/Openreach) it will be much later than that but I need to try and find another solution and wondered what our peers are using to send audio to their TX site, I know there are lots of methods and I’d be interested to know which ones you use or might recommend. As with everything Community Radio, costs are important, but so is reliability in this case.
note: we’re not in line of sight so microwave link or similar is not an option.
