Donegal Sounds Community Radio Ltd. have been approved an FM radio licence from the BAI and Comreg Ireland to Transmit on 100.8 FM from 26 January 2013 for the Ardara, Glenties, Narin / Portnoo area. The name of our FM radio is Owenea FM . You will be able to tune in every Friday 12.00pm to 12.00pm Saturday night.
We will bring a variety of music, chat, local and international news and lots more.
Due to the success of last year’s festival webcam we are planning to go bigger and better this year by doing live video broadcasts online and hopefully live radio broadcasts locally.
Currently the events scheduled to be shown are the opening on Wednesday 10th, the Fair Day on Friday 12th and the Parade on Sunday 14th. The start and end times of each broadcast are yet to be decided.
To help us make this a success we require some help with the following things:
We need people to help us test the online broadcasting. We would like people in different parts of the country and even the world to join in with this so we can get a better idea of what’s possible.
We require more cameras, the more cameras we have the more we can show of the festival. If you have a video camera that can be used as a webcam or just an ordinary webcam that you wouldn’t mind us borrowing for 2 weeks please let us know. Also if anyone has a business connection that could get us outdoor video cameras that would be brilliant.
We need some help with setting up the radio transmitter. If anyone has any experience with radio equipment please let us know.
If you can help us with anything above or if you have any further ideas please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally we’d like to thank our sponsors FastCom Broadband who are supplying our internet connection to make all our online broadcasts happen.
