    Abstract: A device and method for remote control of a radio or television transmitting station located separate from a control studio and being capable of (i) monitoring preset conditions, (ii) activating notification channels for communication of monitored conditions (iii) responding to commands given remote from the device for initiating remedial or other appropriate actions. The method and device involve use of a microprocessor for locating at the transmitter station and for providing a plurality of input and output ports, means for storing preset conditions and comparing such conditions with status and metering data received at the input ports, and including a memory bank for storing separate action signals for initiating corrective action and for developing stored coded voice signals useful as part of voice synthesis. Alarm notification is provided by voice synthesized and transmitted over telephone lines which enable contact with the remote control device over any public telephone.
