It was not too long ago that Roger Howe and Scott Incz were doing the same as you - making great radio. They faced many of the same problems when it came to the equipment they needed. The good stuff worked and sounded great. But it was too expensive. The cheap stuff was unreliable and didn't have the sound quality to allow their radio stations to stand out on the dial.
Their solution was to create a range of products to set new standards for quality, service and value.
Roger was listening to his own, homemade transistor radio at age 8. By the time he was 15, he built an 807 valve AM transmitter, as well as his first FM transmitter. After he left school, Roger continued working on transmitter and RF amplifier technology for commercial and military applications, as well as on beacons for airfield navigation.
As a young child, Scott was pulling apart his toys, and some of his parent's electronics, to see how they worked. His love of computers and programming started with a ZX81 (and he's probably had every model of computer since). At school, Scott's technology and electronics curiosity combined with his teenage interest in popular music to make him yearn for his own radio station. Needing to pay the rent after he finished school, Scott got a job doing telephone systems engineering, while working on FM transmitters at night and over the weekends.
Roger and Scott got together through their shared passion for radio technology. When they started their company in 1997, they were building the kind of FM gear they wished they had-smart, tough and priced right. When it became possible, Roger and Scott jumped on the opportunity to offer their products worldwide via the Internet. Smart gear, priced right.
