Re: FAA requirements for Decommissioned towers

On top of what Kevin said above, You need to file a NOTAM when you demolish the tower to the fact the lighting is out, until the tower is officially off record. What I believe is fact, is you also have to have the FCC modify your ASRN to "dismantled" status, to get the tower taken off record. Based ...

That is an "N" type connector. Very commonly used in RF applications.

Does anyone have one I could borrow, or be willing to sell cheaply?

Re: Over-powered translator

Around 102 m at 99 watts. The terrain around it to the south is pretty flat, but to the north, it gets quite hilly.
It's also semi directional as well. Just seems to get out much much much better than it should.

Over-powered translator

So somewhat nearby me, a translator for a foreign language AM station signed on. However I have pretty solid reason to believe they are way over power. Knowing the terrain, other co-located stations, and other nearby signals, this one signal really gets out well. Better than a class A in the next ci...

Re: Continental 816R-3C IPA

And that dummy load test of the existing amplifier . . EXCELLENT idea before you jump into the deep end of the pool. It seemed to me that the OP may have been assuming that the brick was bad, instead of troubleshooting the problem. In the nearly 50 years that I have been in broadcast engineering I ...

Re: LPFM Antenna Recommendations

ERI LPX series.

The Nicoms have issues with water penetration as well. Stay away from the "budget brands" like OMB, PSI, etc.

Jampro and Shively make good antennas, but ERI rototiller series is the top shelf. And it's your antenna, the final point before the listeners.

Sencore will give you a discount any new sat receiver, if you hand in an old receiver. Even a competing brand.
