Rant from Riverton: I can relate to Musk's mindset ~ but I don't approve of his tactics.

For the past 72 hours, I have been following the whole Elon Musk Twitter issue with the banning of accounts related to the @ElonJet account that was retransmitting ACARS and other data regarding the position of his private jet as well as the many journalists who have been caught in the gauntlet for reporting on it. 

FCC announces ETRS Form One deadline, REC announces assistance to stations

The Federal Communications Commission has announced that all broadcast stations will be required to file an EAS Test Reporting System (ETRS) Form One for calendar year 2022 by February 28, 2023.  Regulations require this form once per calendar year, however FEMA did not conduct a National Periodic Test (NPT) in 2022 and no forms were collected.  The FCC is waiving their own rules and requiring the 2022 filing by the end of February, 2023. 

REC announces LPFM stations eligible for full listings at LPFM.us for 2023

Every year, REC conducts an inventory of Low Power FM (LPFM) stations.  This inventory is used to drive the listings at LPFM.us, the National LPFM Station Directory as well as maintain our statistical data for the 6 Segments data, which is used for regulatory advocacy and other purposes.

Impacts on REC related operations in the event of a Twitter shutdown

All of the networks of REC (broadcast services, J1 Radio and Delmarva FM) are closely watching the developments going on at Twitter.  While we will take no position on the current labor situation that is impacting Twitter at this time nor are we taking a position on the current ownership structure of the social network, we are concerned about the interruption of Twitter services and the impacts on the services that are provided by REC Networks that depend on them.

REC Networks announces guidelines for 2023 listings in the National LPFM Station Directory (LPFM.us)

REC Networks operates the National LPFM Station Directory at lpfm.us.  This directory lists every LPFM station across the country.  

During the last two weeks of the year (Christmas week and New Years week), REC has been doing an extensive inventory of all 2,000+ LPFM stations in order to try to find them so they can be listed.  This is a very time consuming process, especially with the many stations that choose to not be visible through the lack of a website and social media presence.  

LPFM stations can now have their logos and station information displayed in some connected cars at no charge.

For immediate release.

REC Networks has released Version 3.1 of myLPFM (https://mylpfm.com).  With this new version comes functionality that permits any licensed LPFM station to enhance their presence in certain vehicle models (with more on the way) using RadioDNS.   RadioDNS is an open source service originally established by the European Broadcasting Union but is available world wide.  

REC statement on the merger of Aiir and PlayoutONE

For the past few years, REC Networks has had an excellent relationship with Aiir, which provides content management system (CMS) solutions for radio station websites as well as providing mobile apps and we truly value Aiir being a part of our extended family. 

It was with great excitement that we hear about the news of the announced merger of Aiir and PlayoutONE.  

REC Networks implements RadioDNS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE.

REC Networks has completed its first phase of deployment of RadioDNS.  RadioDNS is an open standard which has been in use in Europe for over a decade and has been recently embraced in the United States.  RadioDNS permits any FM radio station to have their logos, station information metadata, internet audio streams and program schedules made available to connected cars and other compatible devices with very little resource requirement by the radio station.
