You've probably noticed I occasionally include audio reports in the TCN from Transportation Radio. I haven't done any recently because there have been some technical challenges with the audio not playing correctly for some readers. Among the 7,000+ subscribers to the TCN I'm sure there are some who have Internet expertise. Please let me know if you might be able to provide some insight on how I might best include links to audio in the TCN. The audio reports allow me to do some specialized reporting not found elsewhere and it's something I'd like to grow if I can resolve the technical issues. Thank you!
