Global 24 just sent the following message (also posted on their website):
Dear Global 24 Listeners,
Thank you for a remarkable 12 hours.
Over 2,500 of you (confirmed unique) visited our website in just a few short hours last night and thousands more have visited the website since then.
A big thank you to the over 500 reception reports we have received so far. More are coming in every minute and we are very grateful for all of them. Please keep them coming. We are very interested in reports from the US West Coast as we plan any possible configuration changes. However, we still need reports from everywhere – so please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the web form here.
We are also experiencing some technical difficulties with the internet. We are currently having issues moving the massive amount of programs from our producers to our transmitter via FTP connections. These slow internet connections are preventing us right now from getting new programs loaded for on-the-air broadcasts. Bear with us as we get this working correctly this weekend. In the near term, you may hear a few more program repeats that we had planned.
It should also be noted that these same bandwith challenges are preventing us from posting content on the website. We will have this sorted shortly as fast as possible.
Again, thank you very much from all of us for your feedback, questions and comments. We value your support tremendously.
The Global 24 Team
