The broadcast audio has seemed more balanced since we boosted the kbps. Since I don’t listen 100% of the time I appreciate when listeners let me know about the time when the audio may not broadcast well.
Interestingly I received an “Anonymous” email, with an “firstname.lastname@example.org” as the email address. So this person went out of their way to create an Anonymous email address. The email said: “Audio @ 128kbs stereo, sucking bandwidth. Usually too low @ 32kbps mono, so listen to PV instead.”
As I said I appreciate listener comments, but I don’t honor cowards. At the time the email was prepared Radio Monterey was playing a 128 kbps recorded show. When I listened, it sounded fine.
If any genuine listeners hear audio issues please pass them along. I’m always working with my technical team to improve the listening experience.
In this case I don’t know what the issue could have been.
All reports of issues are investigated, and everyone receives a response.
