Below, you can see and hear Kidd's "Breaking & Entering Christmas" which took place on December 21st using the ACCESS Portable.
Rob writes us, "All I wanted for Christmas was cool Access.....
we got it just prior to our kidds kids day contribution broadcast and there it began to make a difference in our on air product. We were live from the southwest airlines headquarters for 4 hours and it sounded amazing, as good as ISDN and just as solid. There was no way I was getting an isdn line installed at that location so Access was the only choice and it rocked!

Hi Comrex folks….
Just wanted to share a great Comrex experience with you….
Imagine the smile on my face when I saw a shiny new Comrex ACCESS sitting on my desk!
The house came equipped with digital cable and home phone so I politely asked if a high-speed data line could be installed. Sure enough, it was ready and waiting for my trusty ACCESS codec. I plugged it into a cable modem, chose my profile and it connected instantly. The Q107 brass said it was one of the best sounding morning show remotes we’ve ever done! Using BRIC-HQ1 (mono), Delay was very low making on-air conversations between the remote location and the studio a breeze. Loss rate was a reassuring 0% the entire time. As a backup, we connected a Matrix unit to the VoIP line but not once did we have to switch over to it. This event was our first ever full morning show remote using the ACCESS and it went extremely well.
I’ve attached an Mp3 clip from the show. Music was played back at the station, all the voices you’ll hear are live on location via ACCESS portable. Please keep in mind this is an Mp3 and compressed just a bit. CLICK HERE to hear the clip.
I have to say, I love my ACCESS and I don’t know how I got by without it before! Just knowing that I can take it out on the road, plug in my Kyocera 1x EV-DO PC card and connect right away is very reassuring. I’ve even tried it out on the Bell WiMax network and had very positive results.
In a separate email, John sent us this photo:
[Featured in this photo]("Alex at Kia") is another time we used the Comrex ACCESS in a tough situation at Kia Motors Canada. We connected with a Kyocera 1x EV-DO PCcard and it sounded great!
Q107 and Corus Radio are loving ACCESS!

If you're a Comrex customer, you probably know that we love remotes. Radio is in our blood and sometimes, much to the chagrin of our spouses, if we see one happening we've got to find out what's going on. So, it was really cool to spot the WNGC-FM/Cox Radio Athens, GA outside of the Georgia Spa Company when we were out and about this weekend. We noticed that the Yagi and telescoping mast weren't up so we had to find out what they were doing. Maybe using a cellphone to call it in? Much to our surprise and delight, right there on the remote table was a shiny new ACCESS Portable IP codec!
You know, it kind of makes us giddy to know that our customers are so happy with our technology. Shana Vaughn, WNGC's Midday Host, and here broadcast team were set up inside the Buford, Georgia store on a rainy Saturday afternoon broadcasting live to their listeners all over the Atlanta Metro area. And the listeners kept on coming in to see Bullfrog Spas, Green Egg cookers and of course, their favorite radio station. WNGC was broadcasting back to their Athens, GA facility using a Verizon U727 3G Wireless USB modem. They been using it for remotes all over the Atlanta area and couldn't be happier! The management at Georgia Spa Co. seemed pretty thrilled also!
It looks like WNGC's ACCESS Portable has been getting a pretty good workout having recently been used at the St. Jude Radiothon, the Atlanta Home & Garden Show, a couple of Dickey's BBQ remotes and the WNGC Roadshow with George and Scott. You can see photos of these remotes by clicking HERE.
"I must say that the Comrex ACCESS unit has allowed us to really open up and take our stations on the road anywhere we want. Before we were tied down to a phone line or would have to stay within Marti range," says
Our good friend and syndicated morning show host, Moby, is a Comrex ACCESS user, too! He can be heard weekday mornings 6a-10a on 106.1 WNGC.
We recorded some of the audio of the broadcast taken off air. WNGC was using our BRIC-HQ1 Mono algorithm for the broadcast over Verizon's BroadbandACCESS (EVDO Rev.A) service and you can hear it by clicking HERE.
