In conflict zones, operating a radio station can be dangerous. By allowing the station to be operated remotely, Airtime makes broadcasting safer.

With Airtime, getting a radio station together in terms of content and broadcast might not be as hard as you think.

Airtime allows site visitors to listen to our live broadcast whilst accessing instant, updated programme information. In saving broadcasts for automatic upload to SoundCloud, Airtime also saves time for our technical team.

With the Airtime platform we were able to train staff in minutes in comparison to other services. We decided to continue with Airtime for that reason with our all talk radio program. We now hope to migrate all future stations to the platform long term.
Normally Airtime runs all our automated programming, but for the Christmas period Airtime ran the station 24 hours a day for three weeks. It went without a hitch, solid as a rock!

We have been so pleased with the service we receive at Sourcefabric. Any time we have questions, we get an answer quickly from someone who cares.

Basic.fm uses Airtime to schedule its diverse, wide-ranging and evolving programme from a growing group of collaborators. We find Airtime offers a unique framework that makes all of this possible.

We have been very impressed with Sourcefabric. Their willingness and ability to resolve issues within minutes and the user interface stands out from the clutter of redundant radio automation in the market.

Airtime is the backbone of our scheduling/podcasting process and without it we'd still be trying to discover the wheel!

Airtime has some the best documentation I've ever seen, but the support and feedback I received from Sourcefabric was even more than I'd expected. All credit to Airtime's developers, they are doing an amazing job.

Following reports of station raids by armed forces in Thailand, Airtime's remote management ability will prove itself very beneficial to community radio operators.

Airtime is the most effective and convenient automation system to use. The ergonomic and easy to understand interface makes the system particularly suitable for community radio.
Station Manager, Ness Radio
We chose Airtime to run our automated night music programming. It also allows us to have reprises of some daily talk shows and live radio transmissions from club music events overnight, when no one can be at the station.
