Carbon Neutrality Statement
ERN/CRTV recognizes the need to consume less power, to reduce carbon footprint. Due to this, all systems needed to run ERN/CRTV, and CRTV Internet Radio have been tuned to use the least amount of power needed for full operation. Between all systems needed, the total power draw is 22-27 Watts!
ERN/CRTV therefore encourages other ERN stations to improve power usage, along with reducing the carbon footprint of the network entirely.
What is ERN/CRTV?
ERN/CRTV is an EAS enthusiast internet radio station broadcasting out of Missoula, Montana. CRTV, on the other hand, is a perfect simulcast, also broadcasting out of Missoula, Montana without EAS audio. ERN/CRTV has also been recognized by other members of the EAS Relay Network to be one of the most reliable stations, with statistics showing ERN/CRTV being 99.9% reliable.
Providing the most enjoyable listening experience for listeners, and emergency alerts for fellow EAS enthusiasts!
CRTV Stands for Cameron’s Radio For The Valley, because we couldn’t come up with something better…
ERN/CRTV was born in early March of 2022. Originally, ERN/CRTV was basic, using only RadioDJ and a TFT EAS 911. In April, ERN/CRTV switched to a Monroe Electronics OneNetSE (DASDEC-II). Since then, ERN/CRTV operations only grew, adding StereoTool audio processing, adding proper audio switching processes (good riddance VoiceMeeter audio switching), and adding the GWES ERN Podcast into the programming for the day. The future of ERN/CRTV is looking bright, and we hope you stay for the ride. In September 2022, ERN/CRTV was split into two separate stations, ERN/CRTV including EAS audio for enthusiasts, and CRTV bypassing that system entirely, allowing for a pleasant listening experience for those who don’t want to be interrupted by EAS!
ERN/CRTV’s EAS Setup
ERN/CRTV is currently setup to operate utilizing all available monitors on the DASDEC-II (OneNet SE).
NOAA Weather Radio (WXL25, Missoula, MT), Local FM Stations (Operating to support the Ultimate EAS Project), and Duel ERN Monitoring, monitoring both ERN/CAP, and ERN/KLT, are utilized in operation.
ERN/CAP is the secondary entry point for the GWES EAS Relay Network, while ERN/KLT is an ERN participant located in Florida.
