GatesAir has them on exchange, though roughly $800 per.

Ah it's the old "Let's take down the old site before we put the new site up and leave our customers in the dark" trick. Didn't Harris/GatesAir do this to us last year?

Re: Tower rental rates

As they say in real estate, "location, location, location". It's no different in vertical real estate. Where the tower is located and the number of people it will potentially serve is a huge variable.

Re: SBE Certification

Well, okay. To answer the original question..... The CERT Preview is helpful. The CBRE is an open book test, so having the resources available to you when you take the exam is quite helpful. There are a lot of reference materials on the list, so don't think you can just bring them all along and not ...

Re: Gates 5 failure

6 hours crouched over.... and it's back up and running. Numbers are right on the factory checkout sheet. Thanks all for the ideas and suggestions! Glad to see it's happy again! I would assume that most of those 6 hours were spent removing and reinstalling the 5000 screws that attach the output netw...

Re: Gates 5 failure

C1 is an interesting monstrosity, it's 15-ish doorknob caps sandwiched between two copper plates. Hopefully it survived. . Interesting thing about C1. Not sure if you have a daytimer or run 5kW 24/7. Stations that tend to power up and down have had problem with the "capacitor sandwich" assembly. Af...

TRE isn't an option for us as we're in the process of disposing of everything BE, including AudioVault and Transmitters... BTW anyone interested in a BE FM20C?
It's just a tiny piece of software that runs on any old junk PC. There's a company-wide ban on any BE products??

Re: Audiovault Flex / TRE / Shoutcast Question

I feed both my TRE and streaming encoders (in my case, securenet systems) without the TRE streaming metatdata option. It's possible to open two TCP ports on the AVAIR machine... one for TRE and one for your streaming encoder. My audiovau.ini entries from the [AVAIR] sections for metadata are as foll...

Re: Harris MSP 100

EJ -- I completely understand your desire to collect classic stuff. When I was a kid, there was a lot of ham gear that I desired that was far out of my price range. Today, I can have that coveted gear for a fraction of the price, and I get the pleasure of restoring it too.

Re: Flexiva 3DX or NX50

I will agree with Dale, Kevin, and Mark. I refuse to specify GatesAir products until such time as they prove that they are in it for the long haul. The disappearance of the Support Portal has cost me to lose a lot of faith in the company, and every day that it's absent makes me less apt to do furthe...

On Nautel Exporters, this setting is under the "Diversity Delay" menu. It should be set to "Always Blend".

Re: ECO-4 control power supply

Mouser has them:

OK, Scratch that... Apparently that's a different model. Should be easy to retrofit another supply since it terminates with a barrier strip.
