There are some negative reviews but I have had good luck.
Also, ebay has connectors show up from time to time.

Re: Tower Painting question

Howdy, I ran a tower company for about 20 years and we did a fair amount of painting of towers,,, what a mess. It is worth noting that International Orange is not a standard paint color. If you look at the FAA paint chart you will see there is a wide variation in the color. International Orange is m...

Re: Identify a tower....

That looks like a Rohn 80. Is it 42" C to C on the legs? The notation of Rohn series tower is based on the face size. The 80 series had numerous section types, leg size, pipe thickness and cross members. Each section should have an id plate denoting the section exact type.

Sine Remote Control

Just finished a new Nautel 7.5 NVLT installation. The transmitter start up went very well, but getting the presets to operate with the remote control took a little digging in the AUI interface to get the "toggle" selections correct. The real challenge was the sine system remote control and RFC-1 wit...

Re: Tower lighting

Howdy,
I am not familiar with Unimar, but have had good luck with Dialite products on lower powered AM sites. They might be worth a call. also, Phase Tek has an isolation coil that can keep the light controller on the cold side of the tower for multi-conductor lighting systems.

Re: Nautel NV10LT

Yes Kevin, I did those steps. I think this "issue" requires reprogramming the Remote I/O settings. The TX on/off function works with the remote control.
Thanks

Re: Nautel NV10LT

I just installed a new NV LT 7.5 rig,, jumped up and played nicely right out of the box! When trying to interface with a local laptop it took rebooting the transmitter to get the changes to the IP protocol to take. I am trying to get control of the presets with a remote control unit. By taking the P...

Re: Static Dissipators?

I have been putting the ERI dissipators on towers for several years now. They seem help bleed off the charge before the strike hits. The lightning rods should be in place also,, every little bit can help. Proper grounding in essential in any installation. Nautel has an excellent white paper on how t...
