Appendix 1: Suggested setups for CR stations

On the next few pages, you will see some suggested combinations of equipment for CR stations of varying scales and scope. The tables present an outline ready -reckoner that you can use to work out a list that will suit your purposes and your CR station. The re are three different suggestions designed by three professionals working in the field of community radio in India, and each is based on their individual experience and understanding of the needs and imperatives of CR technology. Remember that equipment models and technology change all the time: This means the suggested models and prices indicated are subject to regular revision. To get an up to date version of this table, you may have to spend some time researching new models and prices. Additionally, these are only suggested combinations of equipment. Askfriends, professional acquaintances and colleagues from other CR stations about their experiences with equipment ± and for their recommendations on what might work for your setup. Once you have a basic list of equipment,get comparative estimates from a number of suppliers. Select the supplier with the best reputation and the one who offers you a maintenance related deal. All prices and estimates included here are estimated street prices in India.There m ay be huge variations between official billed prices from importers and retail agents and the µgrey¶ (unofficial) market. Please treat these costs asindicative only. Suggested Setup 1A (Courtesy: N. Ramakrishnan, Ideosync Media Combine)
