Broadcasting fRom home - first steps

We would like to give you more information today about producing and sending in your shows from home.

We are aware that knowledge is unequally distributed and not everyone has the same opportunities. The technical department is very busy at the moment and does not have the capacity to do justice to everyone individually. That's why your activism and mutual support is needed now: Let's try to stay in touch and help each other as a LoRa community during this time of isolation!

We as BG will accompany these processes wherever possible and provide the necessary technical tools. Under point 3) you will find different ways to get technical help - and share it with others.

1. pre-productions

New: Please send your pre-productions every day by 2 pm at the latest for all programmes that will be broadcast the following day. Please send your pre-productions for the weekend by Friday at 2 pm.

Furthermore, no repeats will be played.

2. telephone presence

New: You can reach us by telephone on weekdays between 1 and 4 pm on 044 567 24 11 - outside these times the answering machine is switched on and is listened to daily

3. broadcasting from home: different channels and possibilities

a) Telegram channel "LoRa-TechHilfeGruppe“

How and where can I cut a pre-product? How does Audacity work? How do I get a recording from my mobile phone to the computer? How can I integrate music?

These are all questions that some of you can already answer and others unfortunately cannot. The Telegram channel is a simple means of giving each other practical help quickly and easily (you can also write in your own language!)

Please download the app Telegram to your mobile phone and log into the channel ( => enter "loratechhilfe" in the upper right corner of the magnifying glass symbol, then select the channel and you are part of the group!
By the way, Telegram can also be used on your computer, which can sometimes be handy. Register here with your mobile number:

b) Quick guides online

You can find first short instructions for producing with mobile phone and PC at home here on the lora-website:

This way we can assess your needs - and offer targeted training for specific problems by phone or skype

d) group for live broadcasting from home

Last but not least, we already have some ideas for live broadcasting from home - but again, we'll need mutual help. Therefore we will start with a small group of people who are technically a bit more fit. Do you feel ready to try things out, to be active in a slack channel with the technical department and others and to exchange experiences? With the goal of passing on your knowledge to others afterwards. Write to Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt!
