Website migration for begins October 1, 2014

Our website,, will be migrating to a new hosting server beginning October 1, 2014.  During that migration, you will likely experience outages until the domain transfer is complete.  This will not impact our broadcast partners, but will affect podcasts and on line access for Radio-Road-Test.  Our access for will remain open, so those who listen via our RSS podcast feed and our listener page on line, are cordially invited to check in at, and type in the search term "radioroadtest".

I'll apologize in advance for any inconvenience, but the present hosting server,, is no longer able to provide us with the functionality I need for my broadcast partners, so a change has to be made.

The change will allow me to upgrade some functionality.

Temporary FTP Outage/ drops the ball

If you have tried to access our Radio-Road-Test program from our listener page today (9/26/2014) you may have found a problem.  The company who hosts our site,, dropped a last minute upgrade on its customers like me that necessitated them disabling the FTP capabilities of our site.  They did so without notifying me in enough time so I could find a workaround or give you a heads up that that was about to happen.  To be fair, the company has had a good record with me and up time.   But you listeners deserve an explanation if something does not work as it should.  The company believes it will have the upgrade finished later in the day.  I am not happy about this, but it is what it is.

In the meantime, those who might like to hear this week's version of Radio-Road-Test may visit, and search for "radioroadtest".  The last few episodes are available for your listening pleasure.
