Re: Tough Songs To Process

Forgot all about this one. Just heard it the other day. Donna Summer – Love To Love You Baby. The middle of the song with just the high hats and that deep bass kick. It was funny to watch the meters and even more funny to hear it on the air. :lol:

Re: TWO watts of HD Radio...

If I had a small FM yagi and a decent receiver, I cannot begin to imagine how far I could DX. I had a ten element FM yagi back a number of years ago with a 20' mast. Myself and a friend went up do "Doc's" bluff in Baraboo. We were probably down a few miles from the flame throwing 94.9. (This was ba...

Re: Tough Songs To Process

Did I say piano intro? My Bad. I meant geee-tar intro. Another fun one...Lee Michales - Do You Know What I Mean....love the hiss that comes up in the pause in the middle and near the end! Here's a fun one from the 2000's Daft Punk - One More Time that deep disco melodic style drum beat drives the li...

Re: Tough Songs To Process

Honorable mention for The Joe Jeffery Group, My Pledge Of Love intro. Ahhhh yes.....back in the summer of 69... No wait I don't mean that song......Yes Joe Jeffery Group - My Pledge Of Love. That rolling deep 50 HZ base under the piano intro. The poor single band Voulmax's just couldn't handle it s...

Re: Wheatstone Vorsis

I find all the posts on this audio processing very interesting. Let me just say I too am a product of the 60’s and 70’s and grew up listening to, and liking heavy audio processing. I also enjoy unprocessed music (what little there is these days). I am not debating whether that is right or wrong. How...

EAS Antennas

Haven't done this for a long time. Does anyone have a website or vendor that supplies "outdoor" antennas preferably whip style for receiving EAS AM LP's? I know a lot of stations have roof top antennas for their boxes inside concrete and steel buildings. The loop stick supplied with most work fairly...

Re: Hand Held Two Way Issue

Chris, Check the antenna connectors that they haven't come loose on the PC board. That is a common problem in a lot of "mid grade" Motorola hand helds. After that the T/R switch might have gone bad. If they are still drawing the same amount of current it's possible the final has gone bad too. If the...

Re:

1240 KHz... hey, that's our AM. CONELRAD is some crazy stuff. I guess back in the 50's, in the event of an emergency, all the other stations would leave the air except 640 and 1240. They would turn off the transmitter for a few seconds, then turn it back on for a few second, then turn it back off f...

Re:

I always had issues with the HD-414's. Because they were open, I'd always get feedback when my mic was open. Of course, this was back in the 80's with all that on-air processing cranked to 11. You could whisper from the next room and pin the mod monitor! You bet baby!!! Crank it to the wall. I alwa...

Re: Turntables

OK Bob you got me it was the 77's I was referring to. Don't know where I got 88....ten off! Wasn't the Daven oil used at the bottom of the TT shaft where the shaft sat on top of the ball bearing? You sold me a pair of CD-1201's in 1980.......I still have them in my studio! P.S. The on/off switch was...

Turntables

Calling everyone on this board.......When were the Gates 88 rumble king turntables first made and sold? They had the big red rocker switch on them. :?: I'm thinking Bob G should know this. No it's not a contest, I was just thinking about it in an email to a friend.

Re: 10.7 IF Spacing

I have not seen a waiver issued for short spacing the IF, but anything is possible with the FCC these days.
