Republic Broadcasting

According to Wikipedia, KHFX-AM in Dallas / Fort Worth is carrying the Republic Broadcasting network. To say they are “right wing” is an understatement from the little bit I remember hearing them. John Stadtmiller is the guy behind the operation – he originally created GCN, the Alex Jones 9/11 Truther network.

They use a method of distributing radio that is more common on foreign language broadcasts. Since a lot of people now have “unlimited” talk on their cell phones, they offer access via telephone. However, if you read your cell phone contract “unlimited talk” means two humans talking to each other, not 10 hours of listening to a radio station in Texas.

Here is the description of John Stadtmiller’s show

As a dedicated and aggressive Constitutionalist, Stadtmiller consistently defends the Bill of Rights, property rights, and our nation’s borders. In the spirit of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, Stadtmiller passionately argues against foreign entanglements and wars for the sake of corporate and banking interests. Stadtmiller avoids the bogus political labels of “left and right” and instead focuses on what really matters – what’s right and wrong. As a tenacious journalist, Stadtmiller has broken thousands of national stories over the span of his career, a feat that led John Stadtmiller as one of the front runners in alternative media. Stadtmiller’s mission is to re-ignite the spirit of 1776 and stand as an example of the fact that one man can build a vocal media platform without the aid of big corporate news networks that only serve to compromise and dilute the core message of freedom and liberty.

Any interest in having this network available?

    Because of calls to and from Jamaica that I have made to family members, I have gotten many unsolicited spam calls offering me the ability to listen to several Jamaican radio stations by calling a domestic U.S. number in the same way. It was fun to try them out.

      Unless the way phone company tariffs work, the reason behind this is that the phone company running the radio service gets a small amount for handling their end of the call – something like $.10 an hour. You are not directly paying that – your phone company is and they can’t pass it through. With unlimited long distance, if you listened like that for several hundred hours, they might get huffy.

      The radio station only needs a single connection from Jamaica to the US to support the domestic calls. That probably could be done by Skype. Someone has to have a machine somewhere answering the calls. I would guess when you connect to the stream, you probably also get “bonus” advertisements before the stream starts.
