I was buying the SSM2013 VCAs for the 1200-15 console I tended to. Keep in mind that the other channel's VCA would become wonky when the other chip took a dive, so it might prove beneficial to replace both channels if your board is indeed set up with two VCAs per channel.

I was sad to hear of Tom's passing. I had corresponded with him only a week or two ago and while he sounded like he was in good spirits it also sounded like he had come to terms with his own mortality.

Years ago I had an MW-1 at a two-tower direction popping itself off the air intermittently. When I got to the site I noticed an entire row of plastic cable ties failed and a long length of the coax for the STL dish was flapping in the breeze. As the wire went further away from the tower leg the Harr...

I assume your Compellor doesn't have the "A" designation after the model number, right? Also, I have mine feeding a downstream audio processor so suggested settings may be different depending on what the follow processor(s) are set for. I have the process balance at about 11 o'clock with about 8-10 ...

I'm looking for any and all Goldmine Imaging CDs I can get my hands on. I'm using them as templates to teach high school students how to do radio imaging and aren't being used for commercial use. I was lucky enough to have a station donate a few but I missed it when they threw out their entire CD li...
Any body know of any compellor 320a's sitting around collecting dust? Unfortunately I didn't realize the 323 is a mono unit and I want to run stereo. Another 323 would do just fine and I'm always looking for non working units for spares. Just an FYI that you can't gang 323's for stereo as there's n...
Do you have an idea of what's wrong with it? My experience is the damn VCA chips crap out. I'm pretty sure I have one last tube of them in stock it that's the case as I've been billing them out at half of what Arrakis was nailing me for them (until I finally got rid of every last one of their consol...

I ran a webstream for 7+ years and once I got tired of watching the expenses rise every time I garnered new listenership. At least the royalties are lower for companion streams for licensed broadcasters.

I actually used David's resources and they came in quite handy. Along with other assorted publications I was able to find out quite a bit about a station I not only listened to as a kid but eventually ended up engineering (the tribute website is listed in my signature). There's quite a bit on his si...
I just received word that broadcast engineer Ralph Winquist passed away a couple of weeks ago. I don't know if anyone here remembers Ralph but besides being quite active in the broadcast industry he provided quite a bit of assistance to non-comm stations here in Connecticut, including WPKN, WMNR, WV...
