Rumsey Retro Radio is a radio station located in Rumsey, Alberta, Canada. The station was started in 2009 by Bob Braaksma. Initially it was a way for Bob to share his antique radio show collection with friends, but over the years it has grown into a popular local and internet radio station. The station's broadcast is accomplished using two Apple computers with specialized software. The terrestrial signal is sent from the computer through a mixer and to a studio interface system. After that, the signal is sent to a low power AM transmitter, located on a 55 foot tower. During the summer of 2020, the AM antenna was struck by lightning and took some damage. The team is hoping to replace it sometime if possible. The internet stream is sent out using a streaming software and then out to the world on a "4G" internet system which is a unique type of internet connection available in the station's remote location.
