Att: MediaVoice Re: Our First Drive-In Service, July 2020. I wanted to send you a note before I call it a day. Our first Church Drive-In service broadcast was this evening and everything worked splendidly, the transmitter was a big hit! We were even fortunate enough that the rain stopped and the skies cleared in perfect time for things to proceed exactly as planned! A great success by all accounts so far. Thank you, gentlemen, for all your help in getting us to this point. Blessings… Pastor J Milne, Nictaux Baptist Church, Nova Scotia.
Since the mid ’90s, we have provided Special Event On-Site FM Radio systems for Business, Sports, Community Events, a Drive in Theatre, overflow for Funerals, for both inside and outside Houses of Worship and most recently, several Drive-In Systems used by Churches during the Pandemic and more.
Low Power FM Radio (LPFM) is extremely cost-efficient. It’s perfect for spectator sports like Racing and Water events, Exhibitions, Tourist Attraction venues, Festivals, Special Event Marketing, Museums as well as local special event broadcasts. And Low Power FM is now being used extensively at the Olympics? The largest Tall Ships event in Canada (Tall Ships 2000) in Halifax, the Valley Drive-In and the Windsor Pumpkin Regattas are three of many examples of successful Low Power FM applications that we designed and installed. LPFM can also dramatically extend a PA system’s limited reach on Lakes, CampGrounds and for Equine and Agricultural Exhibition sites supplying Arena audio to nearby Barns, RV’s, Trailers, Campsites, and even Vehicles up to several kilometers away.
A Bulletin for Churches and Houses of Worship: There are new regulations now in place in Canada for Churches and Houses of Worship who wish to use Low Power FM as a ‘new’ local community outreach solution. Under new CRTC exemptions, Churches and Houses of Worship can now transmit a 50-watt (FM) signal broadcast any weekly on-site ‘live’ activities including Sunday services to your local community ‘without’ a CRTC license. This is a major CRTC FM Radio development that now saves you thousands of dollars and substantial set-up costs. NOTE- There are only a few special conditions and we have all the details. Contact Mediavoice about this exciting opportunity to add FM Radio to your local outreach strategy. We can have you broadcasting all your services and ‘live’ church events on the FM band ( winter weather permitting) within fifteen weeks.
While LPFM usage has grown tremendously in the United States and Europe, LPFM is only recently starting to catch on in Canada. The reason? Education. Very few have been aware that LPFM was even available and even fewer know what it is. What makes that statement ironic, is that LPFM regulations in Canada are actually now some of the easiest to navigate. LPFM is extremely effective for reaching people who ‘want’ your specific information content or messaging. For an amazing system, LPFM requires simple but proper design, including low-cost signage and professional installation. At MediaVoice, we’ll assess your site and/or event and we’ll give you straight answers on whether an LPFM system is right for you. If it is, it can solve many marketing issues and can also help you earn new revenue. If an LPFM system is ‘not’ suited for your site or event, we’ll tell you why. That’s integrity. LPFM will continue to grow in Canada in 2023 and 2024. Yes, there are some specific rules and regulations monitored by Industry Canada and the CRTC but it all depends on the application and the equipment you use. With over 30 years of experience in Low Power FM, we can handle the entire process and deliver an awesome ‘turnkey’ system to your organization, business, event or special community application.
MediaVoice is also the Atlantic Dealer for Decade Transmitters. We’ve been installing these durable, robust and easy-to-use high-quality Canadian transmitters since 1993. And in over 29 years, guess how many of our LPFM Transmitters have ever had to be replaced or repaired? The answer is one. Why? Because it took a direct lightning hit in Aylesford Nova Scotia during a severe thunderstorm way back in 2009.
ONLINE STUDIOS A while ago, we completed a studio installation in metro for an online internet studio. Expanded WiFi is now part of many new connected cars and online audio will expand tremendously in vehicles over the next 2-3 years. Those who establish ‘unique & local’ online services early will be in a great strategic position as ‘hyper-local’ content and information takes hold and continues to grow. Please note, there were more than a few people who laughed at us when we were promoting Podcasts 13 years ago back in 2010.

For those looking for in-store or online custom audio or to discuss a small media production studio for your ‘online’ content generation, podcasting & information or marketing strategies, please contact us today.
Congratulations to two recent clients to adopt LPFM technology. The Nictaux Baptist Church in Nova Scotia held their first Drive-In Service to excellent reviews and The Pentecostal Church in Gray Rapids, New Brunswick went ‘live’ with their first Drive-In Service recently. According to Reverend Graham Russell, the congregation and visitors love it.
And thanks to RF Wireless in Toronto. They purchased a pair of LPFM Transmitters from MediaVoice for specialized broadcast applications serving events in the greater Toronto area.
