AUTO SHOWS:  New York International Auto Show, August 26-27, 2020

Note: With the Coronavirus issues worldwide, organizers are monitoring the outbreak, as are we. As of now, we’re on track to cover New York, and the LA Auto Show once restrictions are lifted.  
TWO-WAYS & CALL-INS:

We will let you know about any two way opportunities from the auto shows we attend here. I do them as a courtesy to our over-the-air affiliates. I can do them on the phone, on Skype (pkcommunications) with audio only or audio/video, and on a station's G.722 codec or OPUS enabled codec via the Luci Live Lite app.  I have a Cleanfeed account, so we can do two ways using that protocol.  Comrex released its Field Tap app, and I can use that as well.  Those two ways make a nice addition to a morning show or a news block.  Also, PK Communications has an ipDTL web based codec that can be accessed from any OPUS codec (14101@sip.audio).  I can also send a one way link to your studio ingest computer for two ways.

UPCOMING EVENTS: TBA

Station Closed Circuit:
 CORONA VIRUS UPDATE:   As of 3/22/2020, we are still producing programs and will do so unless our supply of cars is reduced because of travel restrictions.  If that should be the case, we'll produce automotive content on topics we cover in the show (connected cars, why we test what we test, safety tech, fuel economy and safety ratings) and perhaps dive into our vault for milestone programs.  If we can help fill time with a two-way, let us know.

Please reach out to us so we can schedule a two way for one of your station programs, if they can benefit your morning show or a potential advertiser. They can be done over the phone, or better yet, by ipDTL,  Cleanfeed, Luci Live Lite or Field Tap. Milestone Tests:
 On April 6, 2020, Episode 1350 of Radio-Road-Test was released for broadcast.  The vehicle is the Lexus LX 570; its photo will grace our listener page, Facebook page and other Radio-Road-Test portals until Episode 1400 is broadcast, sometime in early Spring, 2021.
