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 FZm out if Lincoln car...

Re: ETRS Reporting Forms 2 & 3 09/27/2017

I think they extended the Form 2 deadline at the last minute but that has since passed. I find more and more web pages won't work or seize up using IE11. I still use it as my default but keep Chrome, Brave, Safari and some other simple browser, the name I can't remember, handy. I would make Chrome m...

Re: Phone Audio dropping

For purposes of troubleshooting, what happens if you have another long distance call going on another line at the same time? That might serve to eliminate the long distance carrier or not depending on whether or not the same thing happens to the other call. Do you know about when it started? Just so...

Check Bay Country Sales in Maryland for used Compellors which come in often.

Re: computer audio interface - alternative to 3.5mm

Hey John,

BSW has a number of options. One is oddly enough a Henry Matchbox that mates XLR-to-USB. But it's a little pricey though still less than a standard pro audio soundcard. They have a Presonus unit for $100 that looks promising. I may have to get a few of these!

Re: Tom Osenkowsky passes away

Really saddened by this news. Only months ago I PM'd him on the subject of "didn't we meet in the early 70's at WINE?" And, in fact we had. I was just visiting. I figured, since was well known in engineering circles, that he was likely very busy and so did not make any further efforts at contact. Co...

Re: 2017 Eclipse

And this morning I finally got the question I've been expecting for a week: "Do we have satellite backup for this afternoon when the sun goes out?" Sigh. Hell of a time to be asking. Even if the question is ignorant. And not only is the ignorance of an astronomical nature but of an astronomical mag...

Re: Splitting coverage into markets

Since streaming providers can do this, perhaps something based on that technology would fit the bill.

You might touch base with Winston at NextKast automation. He might welcome the challenge if he isn't already offering a solution.

Google NextKast.

Re: RCA BTA1M transmitter

Hm. Together with the manufacturing troubles with 4-400s you might have explained why, toward the end of our Bauer 707's service as a main, I was getting only about 8 months out of the tubes: CRL processors. They were cranked pretty hard although the large majority of programming was/is talk. That, ...

Re: RCA BTA1M transmitter

This is great! That is the model I was thinking of and upon further deflection, there were two stations in my past that had these. I can't find a date anywhere in the manual, though. Thinkin' they must have been from the 40's. Stations in question, should anyone be curious, were WHTG and WAEB, both ...
