Welcome to AM 1580 Rumsey Retro Radio!

 Rumsey Retro Radio is a hobby radio station operated by Bob Braaksma.

Started in 2009 as a neat way for Bob to share his antique radio show collection, it has grown into a popular local and internet radio station.

 Rumsey Retro is supported by Bob and a by the generosity

of listeners who choose to donate funds that help with monthly expenses and equipment & software upgrades.

 The real magic of the station is found in the many volunteer hours that are contributed by the hosts. And the positive responses of committed listeners.

 The station's broadcast is accomplished using two Apple computers with specialized software. The terrestrial signal is sent from the computer through a Tascam mixer and then a studio interface system and out to a Chez radio AM transmitter located next to Bob's house on a 55 foot tower.

 The internet stream is sent out using a streaming software then out to the world on a "wimax" internet system which is a unique (not always reliable) type of internet connection available in our remote location. Thanks for listening!
