Re: GR EAS-1/CAP-DEC-1 issues

I don't have an IPAWS down/up notification either.
The Sage web interface can tell you if IPAWS is visible.

Re: Factory Reset XDS PRO1P

if it works like the PRO 4 series, the daily password is available on the front panel display and can be used to log into the web scheduler where you can set up a permanent “friendly password”. just sayin for future reference.

Re: computer audio interface - alternative to 3.5mm

I think that’s properly spelled “windows ate one”.

Re: STORQ Users--Downgrade coming

I don’t get an approval. The interface we have is closer to the XDS than what you describe. It’s mainly a lot less convenient. Doesn’t convert to local time, for instance, requiring mental gymnastics for every stinking hour of every program. Salem was early onto the iPump. That could be part of the ...

Re: STORQ Users--Downgrade coming

Op-X would have been right up your alley since you are/were a BSI user. Makes sense that they might TRY to use an in-house product, as it were. Also makes sense - if sense is the right word - that they have no one who knows the STORQ system well. They either canned them or ticked them off. Most of t...

Re: STORQ Users--Downgrade coming

Is the STORQ system being totally retired then? It had a pretty good run.

Re: STORQ Users--Downgrade coming

Do they (the iPump—is that an awful name or what?) switch according to schedule (if being used that way)? I have a 1RU unit that’s been back to the factory once but which I still can’t trust to switch to the correct channel or feed the right program by the web-based scheduler. This is on Salem, BTW....

Re: FCC drops main studio rule

I suppose there will still be some requirement for a control point
why do we need this anymore. As Mark said, the control point has in reality been the engineer’s phone for the last 20 years. Another rule needing brought up to date.

Re: Sonifex Micro HS X hdr cartridge machine

Judging only from the picture, I think the Bias and Cue switches switch the meter out of record level to a relative reading of the bias level, and the audio present on the cue track. I don’t know if anyone else ever used this method when dubbing audio to carts and nobody taught it to me, but I would...

Re: KFXL Fox 51(RF15) in Lincoln NE Tower Collapses

One story I saw said the tower had not been well-maintained of late and that someone on or near the site heard a snap before the tower came down.

Not only no ice or snow here yet; we have not yet had a hard freeze so lots of bugs still flying around.

Re: Wanna Play "Guess What's in the Grey Box?"

TFT EAS 911s do not have audio in/out. That's in a separate box, either TFT's or your own home brew. So perhaps this is that.

Re: More Bad Sports Audio on Fox

I've noticed that on many sports broadcasts. The Huskers used to be carried on KFAB but with all the cascaded compression/processing used in recent years (not under MY watch, course!), it was tiring and sometimes I couldn't make out words either. I find myself listening to the FM out of Lincoln carr...
