Introduction

RadioTraffic.com converts to a specific RCS MasterControl log format.

Edit

Station Configuration

To configure RadioTraffic.com to work with RCS MasterControl, you will first need modify the station configuration to utilize RCS MasterControl as the automation system. In the administration module, open 'Stations'. Select the station you want to configure and double click. Once the station configuration is visible, select the 'Files' tab. Select the 'Product' to RCS MasterControl using the drop down selection tool. The 'Automation Log Path' is where RadioTraffic.com will export the log to, so set this to the file system folder that RCS MasterControl will pull the file from. The 'Station Identifier' will need to match the 'station number' described in the RCS MasterControl Manual (such as 001 for AM, 002 for FM).

Log Reconciliation

We also support automatic log reconciliation for the RCS MasterControl as-aired logs. To configure this feature, you need to determine where these files are located on your network and use that path to configure the "Aired Log Path". The file name will have to be named as followed LGYYMMDD.X.REC. The LG being just a prefix the YY being 2 digit year, MM 2 digit Month, DD 2 digit day and the X being the Station ID.
