Bob Burnham points to the new improved sound equipment used for streaming inside the WHFR station.
WHFR-FM production manager Bob Burnham poses with the new Telos Z/IPSTream R/1 system, which improves the sound quality for people listening to the radio station through streaming.

If you haven’t listened to WHFR-FM (89.3), HFC’s student-run radio radio station through its online stream lately, it's time to give it a listen.

“We've had it under wraps for a while, but you really need to check it out! Our shows sound better than ever!” said WHFR production manager and chief operator Bob Burnham.

WHFR has installed top-notch, state-of-the-art equipment. Now online at is the Telos Z/IPSTream R/1, which combines audio processing with MP3 and Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) in one convenient, single-rack unit. The AAC encoder is fully managed and configured remotely with any standard web browser.

“This type of technology has been installed at many other major stations in the Metro Detroit area and across the country,” said Burnham. “The goal is to give our WHFR streaming listeners a sound quality that is equal to our FM broadcast.”
