Community Radio Technical Manual

This is a resource to help community radio staff and volunteers. It can be used as a reference for technicians as they go about their day-to-day work, cleaning the studios and doing repairs. It can be used to train new people in the programming department – the many producers, newsreaders, presenters and DJs who will operate the studios. It helps the user to develop studios, especially in relation to new digital technologies. Included are prices and costs to be used for budgeting purposes (please note that the publication date of this manual is 2002).

The manual also aims to demystify studio equipment – to help the user understand how to use studios properly and to give the user the confidence to experiment.
