Sometimes you just need an engineer! Whether it is installing some new kit, moving a studio or just finding a fault, an experienced broadcast radio engineer is a God send. The problem is, what if your school radio station doesn't have an engineer?

Assessment Visit: On Site Routine Maintenance & Assessment Visit

Assessment Visit: On Site Routine Maintenance & Assessment Visit
If your PC equipment is getting a little old, it might be worth investing in an onsite routine maintenance visit to allow our engineers to check over your system, perform some simple maintenance and make sure you are on the latest appropriate version of software. They will also be able to advise you about potential problems in the future and make recommendations with regard to minimising future issues.

In general, the engineer will aim to do the following:

  • Arrive at your site about lunch time (depending on travel distance from Hull).
  • Check over your overall system to ensure your software is configured correctly and consistently.
  • Examine the ‘event log’ for up to three computers and make recommendations based on any information found.
  • Physically check up to three computers for damage and clean the fans/filters on those PC’s.
  • Make sure you are on the latest (or best suited) version of software that you are entitled to.

The engineer will not be able to do any of the following:

  • Upgrade or repair any hardware without prior agreement with us.
  • Perform windows updates or re-install faulty operating systems.
  • Upgrade your software beyond the version you are entitled to.
  • Perform maintenance or repair of audio equipment or IT equipment not supplied by us.
  • Provide any training on products.

Obviously, our engineers will try to be a flexible and helpful as possible and any difficulties encountered may affect the amount they are able to cover in a single afternoon.

This service is intended as preventative maintenance but we cannot offer any guarantee that such action will prevent or delay system failures. All we can do is follow recommended procedures to reduce the risks of running older PC’s in mission critical situations.

We offer a discounted rate for educational establishments and registered charities.  For educational establishments, registered charities, hospital radio and non-profit community radio stations assessment visit is £200 (+VAT).  Hotel and mileage are not included. Please contact the School Radio team for terms, conditions and a quote.
