Live on 5DRadio.com every Saturday Morning from 8-930AM (8-9AM on WCHE-1520AM)

Most of you, our listeners, know that we have had some troubles with our stream over the last few weeks. Here is what we know:

  • Our stream software "Broadwave" and computer check out perfectly fine during the week
  • There is no Malware on the computers
  • It is not a heat problem
  • BeeNet only supplies a web page for us that has the link - The actual stream originates from our server at the house/shop which is the IP address supplied by Verizon.
  • Dyndns.org supplies the tie from the name - fivedradio.dyndns.org to the changing IP address from Verizon
  • Verizon has stated that there have been "irregulateries" on or FIOS line, but they also will not go into details as it is "under investigation"
  • We can see all IP addresses that connect and shortly after the start of the show, hundreds of connections hit all at once. They are being analyzed.

It does however appear that "fivedradio.dyndns.org:88/broadwave.mp3?src=1&kbps=24" which is the link for the stream, has been under a DDOS or denial of service attack during the peak time of the show starting just after 8am Saturday

Further note that we refused a request to play specific songs submitted by someone from the Ukrane recently.

We are considering creating a second stream on another DYNDNS channel just for WCHE, but we are also considering gong to the West Chester Studio to do the show there live. Also under consideration is recording the show on Fridays and making it available to WCHE for Saturday morning broadcast.

Please bare with us. Lets see what this week brings. Please also report by email any trouble that you see. Thanks, Gene

Our link is here for the Stream You must have a player such as Windows Media Player or VLC for Windows 10

 

You used to be able to just land on our page for our stream but Microsoft has disabled the Active X in new versions of Internet Explorer.

Broadcast stations still use the older version of IE, so they should automatically hear us after landing on this web page within 5-10 seconds during this time. There is an Active X Media Player that needs to load from Microsoft automatically if you click the bar at the top

See the link above or read the instructions under Droid-MAC-Linux users link.

If you fail to hear our 5DRadio stream on Saturday morning, look for the live Saturday morning show on WCHE1520.com as we head to the WCHE studio in West Chester, Pa if our Internet or electric system fails. If WCHE fails to pick us up, we should be right here.

5DRadio.com is an Internet Radio Network set up to Broadcast - Stream - Podcast - and provide our programming to affilliated radio stations

Established: Oct 11, 2008 after WCOJ 1420 was sold to the Catholic Radio Network

Our show has been carried by WCHE 1520 in West Chester since shortly after 5DRadio was established

How our stream works: We have an audio mixer board for our mics and other audio sources which feeds to our "audio" computer and that feeds to our "streaming server" computer using software (Broadwave Streaming Server). We use a service called DYNDNS that locks our ever changing IP address to fivedradio.dyndns.org on our server. The link on our 5DRadio.com web page at BEENET supplies the path so your computer can find our stream.
