Technical info:

The stream reciever is located on Bawfaw (Boistfort) Peak, aproximately 3,000 feet above sea level.  The receiver is a Motorola M1225 connected to a Telewave ANT150D-3 2-bay folded dipole antenna fed with LMR-400 coax.  A filter eliminates interference from other radios at the site, and an active multicoupler splits the output of the filter to multiple radios.  The antenna is mounted 30 feet above the ground on the side of an 80 foot tower.  The reciever is connected to a Pi-Streamer to encode the audio which is fed to the Shoutcast Distributed Audio Server over a microwave internet link.
