adjustable Studio desk

Does anyone have any pointers on where I can locate good Electric Adjustable height legs for a studio desk. Are there any good designs that are out there for constructing such a thing. I was thinking of using a three leg configuration for stability rather than a greater number to reduce also the pos...

Looking for a good LP FM Transmitter

Can anyone suggest a good low power FM TX - 10 W to 100 W
A Web GUI Interface for remote monitoring and control
Reliable and robust.

Something like the Nautel VS300 but 10 - 100 watts?

Thanks..

Re: Stereo separation

This is feeding into a Broadcast Tools switcher then straight into a Nautal fm Tx fitted with Orban Inside processor. Audio is fed via analogue signals.

Stereo separation

I have a station that runs fm at 4kw and its main audio source is from a computer with an asi sound card. It also has a CD player in the studio. My question : why do we get a noticeable improvement in stereo separation when playing a cd than from the computer? The format for audio files is MP3 stere...

Tower feeder

We have a new 1Kw AM site that is being set up and the Tower is just 3 .5 meters away from the TX building. IIn your expert opinion(s), is this distance short enough to simply run a copper feeder directly from the tuning unit in the TX building directly to the tower base or would we need a length of...

Re: AM Tower Bonding

This is definitely not a safety feature for riggers to use. It's purpose is to provide a single unjoined copper path for the signal to travel along. It is something that is used on almost all installations here.

Re: AM Tower Bonding

Hi Phil, Thankyou for your comment. This installation is a permanent (small) AM translator operating at the upper end of the AM broadcast band. While it does have a hand winch located at the botton (above the insulator) it won't ever be used once the tower is installed in place. The type of system, ...

Re: AM Tower Bonding

Hi Mark Thank you again for your reply and also to Fossell. Apologies for the confusion - maybe we are using a different set of terms to describe things. In my region, each series fed AM tower has attached to it at least one "bonding wire" which is connected to the main structure at regular interval...

Re: AM Tower Bonding

Thanks for the reply. This is an insulated tower and it is constructed in 4 sections (telescopic) mounted on a base insulator.

Am I correct in assuming from what your use locally that plain old gal or stainless guy wire is quite OK to use for tower bonding?

AM Tower Bonding

Hi, I have two questions regarding bonding wires that run up the length of the AM antenna tower. Firstly, does anyone have any advice on what guage wire should be used for this? Secondly, can anyone clarify what difference would we expect if we were to use more than one bonding wire (one on each edg...

We had a similar issue some time ago and we went into the BIOS settings and turned off multithreading and from then on the problem was gone.
Good luck..

Emergency Antenna Ideas

We just had the largest Cyclone ever recorded cross our coast line less than 2 miles from one of our AM sites in Queensland Australia. Winds were gusting up to 290 k/ph in this area and the small towns within 50ks have been devistated - one town has been almost erased totally. The AM site did not su...
