Re: DX-50 works as speaker

The OP hasn't returned to the forum since asking the question. I will drop him an email next week for a follow up, as it will be a month since he posted.

Re: Engineers SOS

Ask the questions here on the forum.

Are these questions you're supposed to be asking an engineer, or are they questions you're supposed to answer yourself for your exam?
We won't do your work for you, but could provide guidance...

Re: EAS/CG Question.

That looks like the Winmaster CG, which was part of an EAS package you could purchase with the TFT back in the 90s. The Winmaster would drive a Chyron Codi, as the actual CG generator.

Re: New member - LPFM transmitter recommendations

I'd give BW Broadcast equipment a look. Their TX300 V2 weighs in at under $3,500, complete with audio processor and stereo generator. I've got a client that has a number of them used as translators and they just work. (Yeah, they're made in the UK so far as I know but nothing is perfect.) I've inst...

Re: Harris HT30 issue

Well the issue has been resolved.

The Backup Controller has a solid state relay that was doing it. Apparently the relay on this controller is in service, even if the main is switched on.
My friend swapped out the relay and the problem has not returned.

Re: Mounting stuff to old concrete block wall?

Weird terminals. (Leviton socket, I would think a name brand would be reasonably normal..) Wired it the wrong way twice -- I'm figuring if one can pull the wire off the terminal with one finger, it's probably not going to pass 30 amps without fireworks:( The wires don't go where you'd think they'd ...

Re: Harris HT30 issue

First a couple questions: 1. When you say random faults, is there a frequently-found fault(s)? For example, do you always get a Plate Overload? 2. When the transmitter tries to restart, do you see the front panel meters do anything abnormal. Example: plate voltage rises, but no plate current? Plate...

Harris HT30 issue

So I am helping a friend with a Harris HT30 issue, and suggested I'd ask the brain trust here for any input. So this HT30 is randomly shutting down. Sometimes with no faults, other times with other random faults. No two times are a like (not the same fault indicator twice). After it shuts down, it a...

Re: Mounting stuff to old concrete block wall?

When you're all done, you'll find the dryer's cord is 6 inches to short to reach the new outlet. Or as my wife would say, I tried to add an outlet, ended up replacing the roof.
