Upgrade to metalon.org

As you can notice, we made a small update to this site, basically by secure reasons and because we already was a bit tired of the old look. At the end, not many changes, at all. Hope you enjoy and of course opinions are always important to us, so let us know what you think.

Most important, hope you keep listen Radio Metal ON channels.

Cheers,

New year, new plans!

2013 was a intense year of searching for a server. A low cost one, that give us capacity to grow. Using new technologies of stream and implement of new channels. Of course we find a lot with capacity to do that but always, too much expensive. Finally and after lots and lots of experimentation, it seems we find a good one, not enough powerful, as initial I want, but that will give us the enough capacity to expand Radio Metal ON.

So for the new year, 2014, you can expect:

-Migration to a new server and the shot down of the old one, so you should update your links to listen (expect this happen in 1 or 2 weeks, maximum) .
-Each channel is now streamed in 2 different formats: mp3 and AAC+ (the latest one thinking in the mobile engines).
-New channels added to Radio Metal ON (2 or 3, not sure yet it all depends in the server capacity)
-And some changes in this site, too.

Hope you will enjoy this changes, as they are made thinking in you, the listener, always trying to give you the best listening experience with the best music.

Happy new year dear Radio Metal ON listeners / friends!
Horns up!

Radio Metal ON needs your support.

Radio Metal ON needs your support:

Please make a donation and help support Radio Metal ON monthly expenses. Don’t care about the quantity, every Euro / Dollar will help a lot and I’ll be very grateful to you.





Radio Metal ON needs to achieve a monthly goal of € 100 / $ 130 USD

 

Why I’m asking for donations?

- Is no secret that all Radio Metal ON monetary needs (exception made to the site hosting that is offered by the Wizard) are supported only by me (M.J.) with my monthly income from my day job, the same income that I have to pay my family bills and keep survive. And remember RMO is commercial free, what means that there’s no money incoming from the station.

- In 10 years of life RMO never ask for donations, but now RMO expenses will increase because it needs a more powerful server to manage our streams, this fact will cost more money, exactly more € 100 / $ 130 USD, than the actual monthly expenses.

- And why RMO needs a more powerful server? Because I’ll upgrade our streams to a more recent technology, from Shoutcast V1 to Shout V2. This have a lot of advantages to the listeners:

  • a) better sound quality;
  • b) metadata faster delivered to the listener;
  • c) same stream in different formats / bitrates (ex. mp3 at 128 kbs to pc connections and AAC+ at 48 kbs for mobile engines);
  • d) using port 80 to offices connections;
  • and some more great surprises for you!

 

At the end of each month I’ll post in the site the amount we reach with the donations and the name and country and the quantity each listener donate (if you request to be anonymous of course I’ll keep your name in secret)

So hope you will donate and help keep alive your fave Metal station, Radio Metal ON!

United we are strong!

M.J. (Radio Metal ON owner / manager)
