These documents are here to help developers of RadioDNS Hybrid Radio systems and receiver implementations
On this page you’ll find the current (and prior) versions of our specifications, proposals for new specifications, HOWTO guides with step-by-step information, and technical case-studies/presentations.
These are the latest versions of all our published standards. Use these versions when you’re developing anything new. They are free to download and use.
You need the core lookup specification to create a DNS lookup to find the FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) for a radio station, so you can make an IP connection.
