This area is an EXPERIMENTAL demonstration project. Its aim is to assess
the viability of making small segments of news broadcasts from RTE (the
Irish National Radio service) available on the internet via anonymous ftp,
and via world wide web.
*** Users in the RTE listening area are asked to please use their
radios; the primary aim of this experiment is to make a little
bit of RTE broadcasting available to those of us who are out of
range and cannot pick up RTE directly. Your cooperation is
In each file there should be 6 minutes of airtime, starting about one
minute before the 8:00 am news. The format of the files is Sun u-law and
the name will include the date, e.g. "19940322.au" (for March 22, 1994).
The latest file can always be retrieved via filename "latest.au" and a WAV
format of this "latest.wav" is also available. Generally, there will be
about a weeks' worth of files here, and each one will be about 2.8
megabytes in size. Please exercise restraint with these large files!
If demand for these files is too great (i.e. interferes with my ability to
get work done and bring home a paycheck), this area may only be accessible
during non-office hours (i.e. outside about 8am-4pm EST/EDT).
This experiment was made possible by Liam Relihan (Univ. of Limerick),
Aengus Lawlor (Rohm & Haas, formerly D.I.T.), Mark Riordan (Trinity College
Dublin), and Pat Murphy (NRAO, formerly U.C.D.).
