    Alot can be learned just going to the Automation website of choice and doing some reading and re search.

    I have been busy just mowing and weedeating around transmitter sites this year. The only time I deal with Automation issues is Dead air and that involves calling the studio and having some one kick it on their end. The only station purchase I did research on was what type of ridding mower Bonneville bought. In the end a Husqvarna. And it's all analog except this one has a digital hobs display.

When it opens, yes you are streaming it, but it loads well ahead of time so if your internet goes down briefly, you don't lose your audio. Since it's specific to the station, I thought the imaging was on the local machine. That's what I thought about spots as well, but now that I think about it more, I would think the spots are on a separate server connected by a lan to the air computer.

    That is a very imaginative approach, but not anywhere near how terrestrial signals are streamed.

    Maybe you need to plant some virtual grass so you can mow it from the cloud!

    Husqvarna makes a Robotic mower that like a Roomba vacuum, it just drives itself around the yard. That would be great if I could make it run on RF and not escape the yard. It comes with an app so it's cloud based, they say you can control it from anywhere in the world. A quote from their website.

    "Through the smartphone mobile application, you can receive your AutomowerŪ's current status and send “Start”, “Stop” and “Park” commands to the mower from anywhere in the world. AutomowerŪ Connect brings the mower’s menu system to your smartphone, making it easy to read and change the mower settings remotely*. In case of theft, you will get an alarm and be able to track your mower’s position."

    They make a model that cuts up to 1.25 acres which almost work and its got a Li-Ion battery so it could explode at any time. It cost $3500. But I bet I could rig the anti theft notice to slam the gates closed on the ferry docks!

    Just found one that does 5 acres
