It was mentioned in this mornings RSGB News that the news is also streamed via "some ATV repeaters".. However, I'm struggling to find anymore information on this.
Using the search feature with the words RSGB or News is little use with the extensive use of those words..
Where will I find more info please?
I read the news via GB3EY at 10am on Sundays normally, although I didn't do it this morning as the P4 decided it didn't want to initialize the Lime Mini properly, so have a look at EY live or via the streamer from the 9th January onwards.
Thats exactly what I was looking for, maybe I just didn't spend (waste?) enough time searching for it..
Great name by the way..
Thanks Clive, I can sometimes hear your 2m News depending on conditions, but still can't see EY from home, I was hoping to view 'whichever' repeater via the streamer but if theres a direct stream even better..
I'll look at both streams next time
I'm laid low with a bleedin' cold (I hope) at the moment but hope to get out mobile for some playtime on Friday
I believe it will be our day of Summer for the coming year.
After my last question and having a reply I went to look for GB2RS on the Streamer and there it was in the Inactive list, "Great" methinks.. I knew where to look for it then.
So here I was, Sunday 9am (the time stated on the website), and there's no sign of GB2RS? Inactive list or anywhere else for that matter.
GB3BN is also missing from the active list..
However, using the link above does work although I've missed most of it now.. Grrr
on the BATC Streamer, there are three catagories, online/offline:
GB2RS - RSGB Newscast is an 'Event' Stream.
When GB2RS - RSGB Newscast is active (e.g. Sunday mornings) you will see it on the Online/ Events category.
- click on this and you will see the GB2RS live stream.
GB2RS Catch-up and downloadable video is available from the following URL http://gb2rs.apj1.co.uk after 17:00Hrs on the Sunday of transmission.
To get to this:
- click Offline,
- click Events,
- look for and click GB2RS - RSGB Newscast,
- scroll down and click on http://gb2rs.apj1.co.uk
you will be able to download or watch the stream (after 17:00Hrs on the Sunday of transmission).
You can also just type http://gb2rs.apj1.co.uk into your browser without accessing the BATC Stream.
Will try harder next time. It was easier when I had look-through to check everything, but having lost my antenna array due to storm Arwen that not possible.
