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.

Emergency Outage @ August Camp Radio

Critical

Emergency Outage At August Camp Radio

We apologise to our listeners, but at approximately 10:20GMT+1 (BST) on April 29, 2014 we have had to take down our main broadcast server for essential upgrades and maintenance.

We hope to be back “on-air” soon, We are very sorry for the outage and the time of day, but it was the only time the upgrade process could be carried out and obviously being a 24 hour station which runs on zero profit or income there is never a good time to take it down and we don’t have the resources for a backup server.

We will comment on this post when we are all complete and back up or the upgrade has fallen into difficulties and the delay will be longer.

Thanks again for choosing August Camp Radio – Where The 80’s Live!
