IP address

Howdy,
I have the address of a Nautel transmitter just installed and the browser keeps doing a search instead of connecting. The owner can access the rig from his home through Internet Explorer,, but I can not. Any ideas???
Thanks

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...

Re: Cumulus buys Gates Air Transmitters

We often think of cash flow as the measure of success. But, when an operation gets very big it is a matter of debt flow that keeps the ship moving. I had a small venture that went bankrupt and the IRS let us right the whole thing off and gave a credit for the lost $$. Me,, I am a simple guy,, but if...

Re: SWR/Return loss question???

Howdy, Changing the length of the cable to the combiner changes the phase angle to the reflectometer. The VSWR is still there, it just "magically" disappears. The readings you saw before the jumper change are a VSWR of 1.2:1. The Sira Dipole spec sheet shows the upper portion of the band for that an...

Re: How Old is Old?

Lee,
Winter burn outs are the hardest to fix due to the weather delays and the short work time in the cold. That like section looks like the watch band spring let go. How does the rest of the line look in a wide (350 - 700 MHz) Time Domain pulse?
