We need more DJs to have a schedule. But we need some organising, yes.

We would also need people to backup for other DJs, in case they can't get on to run the radio. A set aside email address for requests would be useful too, and all the djs could have access to it, that would keep sending in requests simple. (like when supplying the mp3s, etc)

Not an request, but an idea: As this is Orbiter-related, playing audio from spaceflights randomly would be cool. (For Apollo mission this would be a good source: http://www.apolloarchive.com/)

Well on that note, astrosammy, DJ bumps generally have some random sound effects thrown in. That looks like a good resource site for making just such things... so make me some bumps people!

Backup DJs or standby or something would be rather useful, yes. I'm concentrating on the fact that we seem to top out at 7 listeners at the minute, so I think outsourcing to the live 365 server model is going to be a worthwhile operation.

Yeah, I only saw Tex's post after I made mine, which was a little unobservant of me.

Ah well. I shall find and queue your request.

This is cool! It's streaming great here on Winamp at 64 kbps.

Thanks everyone! That was I think about the best 4 hours I've spent in a while, much fun.

I do need to get a headset for the mic volume. But otherwise that was a pretty nice live test. As I said on-air in closing, my bandwidth at this time of night seems to cap us at about 7 users for now, which will have to do until next week, after I get paid I'll fire some money someone's way and rent a slot on a server with a little stronger upstream connectivity.

So, for now, goodnight, Orbiter Radio / Radio Orbiter / International House of Pancakes. Those of you interested in DJ'ing this first week drop me an email at xyonofcalhoun@gmail.com and let me know. I need to know what day and time and I'd like to know what kind of show, though that's not necessary. I'll knock up a schedule of sorts and get back to you when I can with your slot and what you need to broadcast to the server.

Drop me an email even if you've already expressed interest lest I overlook you. And beyond that... Same time tomorrow night, 00:00 BST at http://orbiterradio.thruhere.net this time.

Edit: I went ahead with the server renting, because there's a 7 day free trial bit with it. If you click the orbiterradio link above you'll wind up at the stream page.

There's a preliminary schedule in the works here. Those wanting to DJ may add themselves to this calendar and I'll have a look in the moderation queue and get back to you about it.

Opinions on using this format are welcome and would be much appreciated.

I would love that but the problem is if we want to play it while were flying the sound won't come through so most people would like an mfd of something.

The sound comes through just fine.
You can have Orbiter Radio playing in the back and run Orbiter on top of that.
I recommend disabling your Mp3s though.

You can access the radio stream in something like Winamp and minimise it to tray, too, so it doesn't get in the way. However an MFD has already been discussed, and I'll look into it when we're established.

For now, using an external player is the best solution. And as dgatsoulis said, disable your OrbiterSound's music if you're going to listen and fly. I'd recommend knocking off the ATC audio, too.

On air in 45 minutes. Also, welcome to Pablo49, who (all being well) will do his first show next Friday at 19:00 GMT (15:00 - 18:00 EST).

Good luck with your show, Pablo49. I might be home in time to tune in towards the end.

Incidentally, is that time convenient for people to tune in and listen to?
