EventCAST Radio Stations can broadcast a variety of content to motorists who are on roadways and parking lots in proximity to the radio service. Common applications include public safety information; event information (live or prerecorded); signal quality / range evaluation and temporary / emergency signals for commercial broadcasters. 






Choose from 2 system styles:
  1. EventCAST LIVE is for live broadcasting. EventCAST LIVE commonly is connected to a PA system and / or mixer to extend audio programming into automobile radios in the vicinity.
  2. EventCAST PR is a self-contained system that adds an onboard audio system to repeat audio files created in advance and sometimes on-the-fly during the event. Hear an example recorded at Orlando's Hamcation Amateur Radio Convention, February 2020.

Authorization


Government agencies, school districts and parks can license EventCAST systems for noncommercial information broadcasting over a 3-5 mile coverage radius. Educational Institutions (schools, churches and nonprofit groups with an educational charter) can broadcast on their property without a license under FCC Rules Part 15.221.
