Thanks for being on realaudio, i had never heard of your radio-station
and just a few minutes ago, saturday 03/06/95 11.15 am Dutch Time, i
located you on the short wave 7.125. The quality at the moment is bad,
but i could follow the discussions.
What i very much like is the information about UN on realaudio.
Good luck and regards,

Keep up the great work with the Real Time Audio.  I will be
stopping by often to check out your progress.  This has to be
the start of something very BIG.
Thanks for being on the forefront of this new technology.

I want to congratulate you for a very nice page with interesting programs. It's very nice 
for Americans to be able to hear broadcasts in languages other than English. Reception
in San Francisco, California, is excellent tonight, 7 June, 1995. I hope you stay on-line
and increase your services and available European programs.

Dear Sirs,

     I wish to express my compliments on the fine work your group has 
done with this Web site. As a student of Foreign Relations, I found the 
stored audio news reports very informative and useful in my attempt to 
manitain awareness of world current events. The almost constant 
availablity of this information through the Internet allows me to access 
the information needed to assist my academic activities. I hope that 
this Web site can continue to be maintained beyond its test period and I 
am looking forward to continued access to all posted information.

Thank you

 My name is Per and I live in Stockholm Sweden. I've just been listening 
to some of your programs, here on the WWW. It works quite fine with the 
Real Audio. I'm a DXer and radio-fan, so please put more radio related 
programmes on the Web. Thanks.

Congratulations on your audio site. I've just been listening here 
in Cork (Ireland) and reception is excellent. The quality is 
basically equivalent to reasonable MW, better than typical SW, 
with only the occastional break or jump in the datastream.I can't 
tell you much about the technical side of the connection here - 
my pc, which has its own IP address, is connected via a 
university VAX mainframe.

Subject: thanks for providing the radio service

Just wanted to thanks you for providing the real audio
radio broadcasts.  I really like being able to have access
to non-American broadcasts/news.  It is much more
convenient to listen to real audio than to use a shortwave.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Further to my message last week from Cork (Ireland). Reception 
continues to be excellent - the quality would not be acceptable 
for anything except voice at present, but it is entirely adequate 
for this purpose. Curiously, I note that the quality is 
conistently better than the only other current European site, a 
UK newspaper, which is virtually inaudible as the sound 
continually "breaks up" and is not really comprehensible. I have 
no idea why reception from Italy should be so much better, when 
the packet-switching networks involved presumably work to 
comparable standards.

I hope that you can continue to find a way to maintain your 
service, although I note that it is currently scheduled to stop 
in mid-July. It could provide a powerful means of countering much 
of the ill-informed and biased propaganda against the UN which 
has become so prevalent nowadays, especially in the United States 
of America. Having spent three years in a diplomatic posting in 
Lebanon and having seen at first hand the efforts of 
much-maligned UN forces on the ground, compared to the distorted 
media coverage which they often received, it is time for a more 
effective answering voice.

As a long time shortwave listener and fairly new Internet surfer I 
really can appreciate the melding of the 2 mediums. 
Not long after I began exploring the web I realized just how similar 
it was to shortwave listening and felt it to be an extention of my 
interests in world culture outside my own back yard.
I would encourage you to keep the site going as long as you are 
finacially able.
I love RealAudio the possiblities it provides makes sites like yours very
exciting ! I'll be visiting this site often !

Just a quick line to say that I don't have a shortwave receiver, That 
means that your audio files -- in any form -- .au, .wav. .ram, etc -- 
are of the greatest interest to me, I've already listened to several 
of your programmes and been very impressed with them all. Please keep 
up the good work, and if you can, PLEASE * do NOT * stop your 
Internet broadcasts in mid-July! :-)

Thanks again!

Very good initiative.
When this idea develops and spread, it will bee a good effort
to bring us together on the globe.
We can keep in contact with our place of birth and language even
if we move to other areas on the globe. Interested people can
check in and ithers point if view.

I thought I would put my oar in here and let the powers that be it would
be a shame to let your wonderful service die! I believe that the concept
of real time audio over the net is one of enormous possibilities. It is
going to be tough for any firm that is pioneering this form of media, but 
the pay-offs would be tremendous. Just think of the power of reaching
10's of MILLIONS of listeners.

I like the idea of REAL news here in the US.  Its so hard to get a clean
feed from the world news organizations with commercial and political 
fingers in all the pies.

I'm not too keen on sending Money over the Internet, though.

Can you give me a *real* address?

 it's terrible actually that you're going to close down,
but what can I do about it?  I don't have the cash to 
support you. I can only say that your experiment has indeed 
succeeded and that the work should definitely be continued. 
I love the extra news about ex-Yugoslavia because I'm involved 
in what's going on because of my profession as a radiographer. 

 So I really do hope that you are going to stay and keep doing 
what you have been doing until now. The implementation of 'RealAudio' 
is fabulous and of invaluable importance to the development and 
the future of the Internet and also to the way information will be 
provided and looked up.  

 By the way, you're the only European source of interesting RealAudio
material and sincerely don't want to listen to the American crap 
and 'bull shit' talk shows or whatever america-centric barbarity!

I found out about your site a little over a week ago.  Since then I've 
been back at least 5 other times.  You are one of the few sites that 
actually has something interesting to offer in RealAudio sound clips.  I 
don't have a shortwave receiver, so this connection is the only one I 
have to your station.  Plus, as the technology develops for live 
broadcast of audio over the internet, maybe you could be on the forefront 
of that, too.  I hope you can stay with us longer.   Thanks.
