Many stations don’t have the talent or funds to have a regular on-site or consulting engineer. We can monitor many aspects of your station by installing a simple crypto-protected VPN so we can talk to your gear over the network. Once we know your station, you can call us with problems or questions, ideas about upgrades or changes to your coverage. It also means we’ll have passwords and access methods for your various equipment, in case you lose it or need help.
Quick changes, like setting up e-mail alarms for an overheating transmitter or something, are included, and anything “big” we can do for our normal hourly rate of R350.00, which is a lot less than most broadcast engineers charge, and there’s no travel fee!
For another R120.00/ Monthly, we’ll more-closely monitor your EAS and do your ETRS on-line filings for the national tests!
Hero Networks24 provides expert engineering services and low-cost solutions for community-based FM stations especially low and high power FMs. Unlike the “turn-key” solutions offered by some engineering firms, we prefer to work collaboratively with new stations throughout the construction process and to provide technical education for station volunteers in conjunction with our technical service.
Our process starts with design consulting to figure out what you want and need, what you are working with, and what you have already. That leads to a sample equipment list with prices plus a cost estimate to hire us to help build. From there you can purchase equipment through us if you like, and have us come put it all together with you.
Whether your L&H P FM has been on the air for years, you’ve just received your construction permit or your application is still being processed by the ICASA, we can do the engineering work for site moves, channel changes, and more.
