What kind of Tech Support is available if I need help and where do I go to ask? +
Hebrew Nation Radio and NetCasters Chief Engineer, Phil Swearingin, is available to assist you with any technical problems or questions with your service, equipment or installations.

How do I market my new radio station to my community? +
Included in your NetCasters radio station will be marketing materials/flyers to distribute to your neighborhood. In addition, a list of “guerilla” and “grassroots” marketing ideas will be included. Your NetCasters Account Executive will also help you with ideas and answer questions you may have.
Your newly launched Hebrew Nation Radio satellite station will be listed on www.HebrewNationOnline.com/Netcasters . In addition, Hebrew Nation Radio will be congratulating you live on the air and directing people in your neighborhood that may be listening online to find your station on the radio dial!
If you choose to be anonymous, we will not list your contact information on the marketing flyers or the website.
What can I expect when I begin broadcasting into my neighborhood? +
Some of your neighbors will find your radio station on their car, home, transistor radio or I-Phone and will want to contact you. You will begin to build a local listening audience that you can now gather together for the weekly Shabbat and Feast Days. A home fellowship and/or an official fellowship will form naturally. NetCasters, Hebrew Nation and Restoration Fellowship staff and members will support you and guide you through launching and shepherding your assembly, if you choose to have one, which is not a requirement. Remember to contact your Account Executive with any and all questions first and they will guide you to the right person.
What happens if one of my family, friends or local listeners wants to become a NetCasters Network Affiliate or know of someone else who wants to become one? +
Any person that you personally refer to your Account Executive, who becomes a NetCasters Network Affiliate will pay dividends to you! There is a $200 referral fee for this that you can spend as you please! Let your Account Executive know that you have someone interested and they will work with you to establish your friend as a NetCasters Network Affiliate.
Are there other income opportunities as a NetCasters Network Affiliate? +
There are programs being developed that can help you financially. You will be notified by your Account Executive once they are ready to launch.
What is involved in the installation? +
The NetCasters transmitter produced by Procaster consists of two parts: the outdoor weatherproof transmitter with attached antenna connected to an indoor studio interface with 4-conductor cable. The audio and power for the system connect to your studio interface (your computer that audio streams Hebrew Nation Radio online); a 3.5mm jack for audio and a 2.1mm centre positive jack for the AC wall adapter.
Do I need a broadcast license? +
No – not an FCC license. You will be licensed by NetCasters to rebroadcast Hebrew Nation Radio as a Network Affiliate.
What am I allowed to broadcast? +
As a NetCasters Network Affiliate you can broadcast only Hebrew Nation Radio or audio files that are submitted to and approved by NetCast, LLC. If you choose to broadcast any programming other than Hebrew Nation Radio, that has not been submitted to and approved by NetCast, LLC you may not broadcast Hebrew Nation Radio and risk losing your Network Affiliate status.
What kind of range can I expect? +
For a good installation, you can expect 1/2 to 5 miles, depending on obstruction.
