The StayAlert Pilot Project
Alerts are broadcast by a highly reliable network of public and commercial radio stations that are linked together without reliance on the Internet.
Each Government agency receives D2D (direct to dashboard) secured access to the Alert Portal
Primary station KUOW, receives Alerts via Satellite, broadcasts the Alert on its RDS and HD Radio system. It also transmits the Alert on the private, secure RDS channel for secondary stations.
The Participating Signals
Primary and secondary stations broadcasting Alert on RDS and HD Radio, resulting in regional distribution of Alerts with zero reliance upon the Internet.
The resulting Alert distribution
StayAlert Early Warning Alert Processor
Vertokken RDS Open Data Application
Ausio Mesh Network
RDS Verification benefit to participating stations
Profanity Protection benefit to participating stations
Eight RDS data receivers
Remotely Monitored IoT Device
Remote application deployment
Redundant Power Supply switching
1. Attach External Antenna Coax "F" Connector
2. Ethernet cable to local LAN
3. Ethernet cable to local LAN
4. Apply Power
When the disaster strikes, FM Radio will be there
Terrestrial radio stations have serious emergency infrastructure such as backup generators, and redundant equipment to make sure the signal is always on the air.
Cell phone systems historically fail during catastrophic emergency situations
A professional grade backup generator
Participants receive free equipment.
The Ausio Universal Metadata Processor & data receiver(s)
StayAlert supports RDS encoders from:
What does a station have to do to participate?
Install the Ausio metadata processor
Alert Data will not be displayed on your RDS encoder during the trial, after the pilot program is over, you will have 100% control of potential Alert content.
A once daily daily :15 second test message will display and be verified for a quick system confirmation.
