Recording with Us

If you’re interested in submitting content to us or even appearing on the show with us, please do email us and let us know. We’re always up for a chat with folks out there and enjoy receiving aviation content that we can include in our episodes.

Sending us content

  • We prefer to receive your content in MP3 format (96kb/s max rate) although we can decode other formats (it’s just MP3 is so easy and compact :)
  • Send it to us via email or email us if you think it’s going be too big and we’ll arrange an online drop space for you to use.
  • Do what you can to record in a quiet area with good equipment but hey, in the end it’s the content that counts – besides, some of Falcon124’s first efforts were pretty poor quality on all counts :)

Recording with us

  • We like having guests on with us when we record a show – mostly because it’s great to interact with people but also because it helps provide a bit of variety for our listeners :)
  • If you want to come on, please do email us and we’ll sort something out.
  • We typically record about 21:30 to 23:30 (or later) due to work & family commitments (that’s 10:30Z to 13:30Z depending on Daylight Savings Time)
  • You don’t have to be on for the whole show as we can record your bit and then let you escape back to reality

Skype recommendations

  • Update to latest version – currently 4.2 for Windows, 2.8 for Mac, 2.1 for Linux
  • Broadband as a minimum, preferably ADSL 2+ or cable – No Dialup!
  • Hardwired connection to router (eg: don’t use WiFi between your laptop & your router – get a network cable and plug in)
  • High speed computer and the more RAM the better
  • PC headset preferred, wired, not wireless (or cool microphones like we use :)
