Many of our programs originate from our studios in Mendocino and Willits.  In the past year we have switched from using dedicated ISDN lines to a pure internet solution.  This saves us thousands of dollars per year.

We have not been satisfied with the compromises in audio quality we're currently getting with the "compressed" protocol we use.  So we purchased a higher quality protocol to improve the sound quality.  But our experiments with it so far have shown that we need to improve the strength of the internet lines that carry the audio signal.  We are purchasing more bandwidth and buying new routers in order to optimize things.  Hopefully this will do the job.  On paper it ought to already be good enough.  But clearly it isn't.  So meanwhile, we hope that you will tolerate the blips and bumps that accompany the current status quo.  if it's any consolation, they make us cringe when we hear them too.
