Re: Offical AMC 8 Transition Thread (was Sat. AMC-8)

Hi all, In helping "wtcmeng" we are still looking at a on site solution to his problem. Our latest tests suggest it may be interference from a cell site just across the road from the dish. Should we have to move to a new location, what options would we have for bringing in control as well as audio ...

Re: Browser / Java combination for ARC-16 Web access?

1.6.

You have to now use a free account with Oracle to download old java, or you can find it on filehippo.

We have the Burk Webserver at the transmitter, and that is the Java version I Have to use for it.

Re: FCC ULS issues

I think the commission is using a very ancient version of Java.

I gave up and contacted the FCC for help on this.

Maybe 2017 is the year they upgrade from Java 1.6 to something made in the last five years...

Or a better system...

FCC ULS issues

I am having a hell of a time trying to file a form on the FCC's ULS. I get to the initial log in, then select the service I want... then nothing. I've had Java errors, got those cleared up. Now the page just hangs! Why in 2017, is the FCC still using Java? (Why is anyone using Java....) Am I the onl...

Re: BW Broadcast transmitter

Sent my guy up to my isolated 4WD only tower site to raise the antenna a bit and crank up the power on my TX300v2 this morning after my FCC grant. When he got there, the power level that normally floats around the little screen was frozen, and no amount of button pushing would unlock the screen eve...

Re: New Sound Board

Just remember that any non-broadcast board won't have a studio monitor mute, so you'll be constantly manually killing the studio speakers everytime you talk, versus having them mute when you pot up mic 1. Also the cheaper boards (such as the Behringer products) tend to have cheap power supplies in t...
