As some may remember, The ALPB (Association of Low Power Broadcasters) based its activities around TeamSpeak meetings.
TeamSpeak is a real-time audio app which allows multiple participants to speak with each other in a round-table fashion. In addition I and others have used it for live Studio-Transmitter-Link for live remotes. Just last night I put our high school football game on our LPFM using TeamSpeak.
Late notice, but an impromptu meeting has been suggested for this evening, November 1st, 2019 at 7:00 pm EDT. Myself and Johny C. of Rag-FM New Zealand plan to meet.
Meetings were regularly scheduled for the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month when the group was actively involved.
If anyone else is interested, please feel free to join in.
TeamSpeak is a free app. you can download. You'll need the server address to access my TeamSpeak server. Interested? Message me through this forum and I'll send you the address.

Actually, the Saturday meeting was on November 2nd, my goof.
Thanks to Johny C., Jeff-Station 8 and DJ Troy for joining in.
The casual meet lasted for about a couple hours. It was good to hear voices again.
Meetings are typically the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month at 7:00 PM Eastern local time which is now back to Standard Time.
Occasionally someone would organize a "Talk Show", recording the meeting, for use on their station. A great application for TeamSpeak.
That being said, one topic discussed was an idea that came up at a meeting long ago. WBCQ, a shortwave station in Maine, was offering a bargain basement rate for air time and we were going to do a live show on WBCQ using TeamSpeak to allow all to participate. It was never pulled together but still sounds like fun. There was some interest of looking into that idea again. If anyone else is interested let me know.
It was great to reconnect with friends on the TeamSpeak server tonight. I bailed out early but was there to enjoy discussions about Part 15 AM, super 'hot' radios, a volcano in New Zealand and weather talk, a rather long discussion about steam locomotives. Who would have guessed the expertise and knowledge of the folks on this site which go far beyond radio.
