Recent Outage

It would appear that in the early hours (GMT) of Sunday 7 February 2016 our streaming server decided to stop streaming for no apparent reason. Because the broadcast server was still playing it did not raise the usual alarm for us and we were only made aware of the problem when doing some over night maintenance.

I would like to say that as of 9:15am GMT we are back online again and would like to take this opportunity to apologise to our listeners. We will be keeping a close eye on this problem as it is out of our control directly and with our streaming provider.

Thanks for listening to August Camp Radio.

OFF AIR ALERT – 29 APRIL 2015

It is with great regret I have to announce we are suffering from intermittent loses in transmission. This is being caused by a problem with our ISP again and is totally out of the control of August Camp Radio.

The fault has been occurring since 23:13 28/04/15 (UK TIME) and as of now at 02:35 29/04/15 the fault is happening more often.

We apologise to our listeners again for the loss of service and we hope our ISP gets their finger out and sorts this problem as quickly as possible.

Thanks again for choosing August Camp Radio.

SERVICE FAULT – 23 APRIL 2015

Throughout most of today we have been experiencing intermittent drops of transmission. This has been causing our stream to stop/start and fail intermittently. The fault is with our ISP and not the broadcast server this time!

August Camp Radio apologies to our listeners who are suffering these loses of service. We have performed a full reset of our routers and hope this has cured the problem, a fault has also been raised with the ISP.

Hopefully things will return back to normal soon! Just when we think we have fixed the broadcast server another fault comes along….. sigh!

Any further updates will appear on this post at in the news section of the ACR website.

Thanks for listening! (When you can!)

OFF AIR ALERT – 22 APRIL 2015

We apologise to all of our listeners at the moment, but it would appear the gremlins that caused an off-air notice yesterday have returned again today!

We have been off air since 11:42am (GMT) 22 April 2015. We are currently investigating why our master broadcaster server is crashing. Some updates were carried out yesterday but this doesn’t seem to have fixed the problem.

From 12:54pm 22 April 2015 we are now broadcasting our test transmission and will remain doing so until the broadcaster server has been returned to health.

We are sorry if you are a regular listener to our radio broadcast, but sadly computer’s will be computer’s!

We will be back….. hopefully!

Stay tuned to this post on our website for further updates and information.

UPDATE: 15:00(GMT) – We are back online using our broadcast server on reduced service (no song title information is currently being sent to Tune In listeners) We are keeping an eye on the system for the next 24 hours.

OFF AIR ALERT – 21 April 2015

Technical Problems at AC Radio

We regret to announce that it would seem we’ve been off air since approximately 2:53pm (GMT) today (21 April 2015).

Our engineer is currently performing some tasks on our broadcast server to find out why, in other words pressing the big red reset switch and putting his feet up with a cup of tea!

We are very sorry about the loss of our broadcast this afternoon and although he’s likely to be sat drinking tea are sure he will return our servers back to life as quickly as possible.

Thanks for choosing August Camp Radio and hopefully we will be back on air again soon.

Any further developments or updates will be posted on our website under this news article.

Thanks, The ACR Team.

Recent High Listener Count

server_overload_2

Recent High Listener Count

August Camp Radio seems to be growing in popularity recently as over the past few days during peak times some listeners have been unable to listen via Internet-Radio or Tune In etc.

We apologise for this problem, but we only have a max of 20 listeners on our main broadcast stream which is shared between listeners on Tune In, Internet-Radio and a host of other online radio hosts.

We would like to remind our listeners that if you are unable to listen via our normal routes, we do have a slightly less reliable (as it’s free to use) stream on  caster.fm

Please goto http://augustcampradio.caster.fm and listen on there, you can also use that link on your mobile device, but we would like to remind listeners that it is unstable and sometimes offline.

We are looking into ways of increasing our listener count on our main stream, but costs would become to much and as we are non-profit, and non-funded it really isn’t possible.

On that note, if you would like to support August Camp Radio financially so we can increase our listener count on our main broadcast stream, please get in touch using the contact us form on the website or post a message via any of the social media platforms, Twitter / Facebook or Google+

Thanks for listening and thanks even more if you are considering supporting us.
