If you are involved in the technical side of Christian radio we invite you to join us on the mailing list. Members of the list represent stations all over the US and Canada with ties to stations around the world. Many have found technical help as well as shared the common bond of working the technical side of Christian Radio through the list.

The website is an off-shoot of discussions in the mailing list. The primary purpose is to help people searching the internet find the mailing list as well as to have a place to link to some important Christian radio information.

If you're looking for a good radio resource site take a look at The Broadcasters' Desktop Resource. It is new and edited by Barry Mishkind - "the Eclectic Engineer" and friend of the mailing list. Barry is also responsible for "The Broadcast Archive" hosted at
