Stupid Basic Size Question

Post by NECRAT » Fri Apr 10, 2015 6:56 pm

This stems from a conversation I had earlier.

In a new radio facility, multi station cluster, how many square feet total does the radio station typically require?

I know this is a loaded question but ball-park wise.

we have 3 stations in 5400 sq ft. and that's probably large today. (One of my previous places had 2 stations in 10,000 feet but those were the days!)

I know of a standalone AM in KC that exists in about 1500 feet or less. You usually get some space efficiencies with a cluster.

8x10 for a control room, 8x10 for a guest studio. Worked at an AM like that for 7 yrs.
2 shelves in an ordinary closet for a 'studio-in-a-box'.
In my basement, I have a studio, prod, and xmtr in a 8x6 space (the wife wouldn't let me take over the laundry area). :lol:
