Re: Need Dip Switch settings on (/\/\) Motorola 1310

i wound up grabbing one of those Radio Engineering Associates AMM-SD1 monitors. figured it was cheap enough and more accurate than messing with the old Motorola monitor and takes up less rack space :-)

Re: Telos AA Encoder w/Shoucast, Possible?

found out it can't, i need a firmware update to work with shoutcast which is
