Most music comes over a single channel (mono?) (edit: Oops bad connector on this side)

I gave the wrong address in my posting @ Thu Aug 24, 2017 10:04 am

BMIR is on Rod's Road & 5:30 not on 5:45 & Esplanade or 2:00 @ Rodsroad.

Just go to the antenna mast with BMIR on it to provide your own PSA :D

Except for some short intermissions the radio stream is flowing smoothly.

Oh and the address fro the radio station seems to be 5:45 and Esplanade, well you can not be far off if you go to the x-mas tree :D (under the antenna)

As always seems to happen with BMIR in our house, we'll be swaying to some lovely oontz and it will cut out. Repeatedly. Then completely need a reboot.

Anyone out there have any tips? We've tried different browsers and different players and they all seem to do the same.

I'm in the middle of a "in lieu of burning man" renovation and could really use BMIR's love right about now.

Thanks and love to you all, who I am thinking about especially intensely these days...

I sometimes run two computers playing the stream, both fail at the same point (there will be a time difference between the two systems).
Another computer running a third different stream just plays along.

My conclusion is that the stream is intermitted close to BRC. The solution: tune in to 94.5 FM. You will need to be within several hundred miles from BRC.

Only glad we do not have the same continuously intermitting stream as last year :D

Just about every Internet radio station is connected by fiber optic cables which are very reliable.

BRC, including BMIR and the playa camera, is connected by radio links on towers. The radio group does amazing things in extreme conditions. The links can become overloaded. Dust and rain can interfere with radio waves. The power for any of the radios can fail. Wind can affect the aim of the radio antennas.

It is a gift when BMIR plays uninterrupted or the playacam works.

It is a gift and we are very pleased to receive anything :D

Still, knowing for sure you can not do anything to improve the reception is a comfort as well.
It is not your equipment your ISP or anything local. It is the hostility of the desert.

Last half an hour we only received about 30 seconds.
It started with a burning RV

Just enough to recognise it is still Raindog, playing Laurie Anderson - Big Science amongst at least several others (Brian Eno)
