Temporary Increase to Doantions Goal

Eve Radio News

EVE-Radio is expensive to run. We have multiple servers, premium bandwidth, software, services and licensing to pay for. The vast majority of this funding (these days) is made up through the generosity of our listerners who donated to us on an adhoc basis. We need your help! [Click 'Read More' above]

Our next biggest source of funding after donations is through our Premium Supporter service. Finally, we make up the shortfall through private funding and EVEHost. Our primary broadcasting server, Hermes was purchased back on 1st August 2011. Our secondary server, Poseidon, mainly used to provide the Jukebox service and a few other bits and peices, was purchased all the way back on 1st September 2007 (some six years ago!).

Both servers have started to show their signs of age with Hermes having reached it's physical capacity and Poseidon starting to crash frequently. Both were in need of replacement, so we purchased two brand new servers, Lynx and Artemis. Unfortunately, due to some technical difficulties, we have had to keep the old servers running longer than we'd have liked. This has resulted in us needing to fund all 4 servers, when we had originally planned to decommission the old servers within days of the new ones coming online. We are hoping to finally decommission these old servers in the next few days.

Keeping these 4 servers running has significantly increased our expenditure and this had led to a serious shortage of funds. For this reason, we have increased the donation target, for one month only, in the hope our listeners can once again step in and help us to remain broadcasting. Please click here to donate and keep us running or consider becoming a Premium Supporter! Thank you!
