What does the AMR-100 receiver
For stations desiring to purchase a spare or
second receiver the AMR-100 or AMR-100I (Internet-only version) is $1,200
and sold through Satcom Resources

Does the signal interfere with
my Unity 4000?
Not at all. The two
devices will work side-by-side without a problem.
Does this make my Unity 4000
No. The Unity 4000 will continue to be used
by other full-time networks such as Salem and USA.
How do you "guarantee"
By using the AMR-100 receiver's connection
to the Internet to "report home" when there are missing pieces of the
audio file (also known as "packets"). In that instance, those missing
portions will be re-transmitted, via Internet, if so configured, until the
file is complete. This return connection is not critical for the receiver
What programs will be
available on the AMR-100 receiver?
A current listing
of available programs can be viewed on the Participating
Broadcasts section of this website.
Will you send any types of
files other than audio?
It is possible, yes. Since the
AMR-100 is an intelligent storage and transfer host, it can store just
about any type of file which may include: Promo packs, copy for on-air
support, training videos, graphics for Web promotion, etc.
Will the current FTP sites go
No, but we certainly encourage you to use what
will be your "in-house" storage and transfer site for many programs. Since
the AMR-100 will reside on your local area network, the transfer speed
will be nearly 100 times faster than from remote FTP servers.

concern on the varying audio levels that the different programmers send
out. Is there maybe a way to include a normalize
(compander) feature when converting them?
We've established a -6dBFS normalizing process for all
of the contributing ministries. The current version of the UI provides
normalization, should you wish.

Why can't I see the files on my receiver? I
used to be able to.
This could happen as a result of the receiver's IP address
being re-assigned by the DHCP server after a power cycle or firmware flash
reboot. This problem can be minimized by:
- Setting a STATIC (fixed) IP - see pages of the AMR-100 manual
- Making sure the receiver is on an uninterruptible
power supply (UPS); at the very least it should be
protected power strip
To find the receiver's new IP address:
- Press the ENTER button twice on the receiver front
- Scroll down until you find the IP address; write the
number down carefully and enter the new IP address in the AMR-100
