From Harlem to Hilversum...ACCESS goes on the path!

Harlem - Recently, Radio DJ Giel Beelen mounted his bicycle and made a special trip to work. From his bicycle, which was built into a riding radio station, he set out to do his live radio show during his morning commute. He rode his bike from Harlem to the studio in Hilversum, a distance of 48 kilometers (that's about 30 miles) while broadcasting his morning show live to listeners all over the Netherlands. Giel hoped to arrive in the studio before 9, where the Norwegian singer Marit Larsen was that morning's guest.

The idea started in a conversation with Dutch singer Marco Borsato about the National Sportsweek. Giel promised the singer to practice sports a bit more. A bit later, when traffic reader Kees Quaks pointed out to Giel that it was possible to take the bike to your work, Giel decided to make his word reality. Giel used the Comrex ACCESS for the high quality audiolink to the studio. He could be followed on his journey live on Radio 3FM (national radio).
Thanks to our friends at Triple Audio for sharing this story and for providing great service and support for Comrex customers in the region!
