Re: STA's and Resume of Operations

RFBurns is the one who carried this topic across different forum venues, posting first about it here (October 8th), then later with the opening post of a thread on a second board (Oct 16th). ADMINS: Rather than allow this highly misdirected lonely soul to continue to make a bleeping fool of himself...

Re: STA's and Resume of Operations

From another board ...... Could the stated decision of the licensee to suspend operations under the STA be related to the statement by RFB/RFBurns that the linearly-polarized transmit antenna he ordered for use under that STA would not permit meeting the terms of the STA -- which required equal ERP...

Re: STA's and Resume of Operations

Did you count the apparent lie quoted in the posted letter that the station had been off the air since October 27, 2011, when you yourself said it was August 2011? Or is that #9? For sure. It very well could be #9, however 8 would be based on a Resume of Operations filed in July of this year for KM...

Re: STA's and Resume of Operations

Well forget the previous post. The owner is the same dirt bag as he has always been. But no loss here, he has decided to go against the STA criteria and shut off the temporary facility. Next thing everyone will see in the KMLD data is a filing of Resume of Operations once again for a station that is...

Re: STA's and Resume of Operations

Thanks for posting that. I was going to do that in an edit but had other pressing matters to attend to. :mrgreen: JFEI-I have it on good authority...heh...that the owner is indeed attempting to redeem things and restore all of his stations. There are a few things that will get in the way however, es...

Re: STA's and Resume of Operations

This is to eliminate ANY doubt about being legal.

FCC STA Authorization.

And, it's history in the making...a small flea keeps a big elephant standing. :)

Re: STA's and Resume of Operations

I appreciate the concerns. And I am well aware of what could develop or what potential "finger pointing" may be thrown my way, but I should also point out that the FCC is well aware of the history and where all the roads lead to. It's a matter of record within their own database, and previous inspec...

Re: Bunch of rigid line connectors... where to sell them?

Amazing what you find when you clean your garage... Boxes of 1 5/8" connectors, elbows, etc and many 3" types as well. I have no need for them, but would like to make some money to buy a new ham radio. Ebay my only option? One thing everyone has overlooked, know any tower riggers? They're always lo...

Exactly. And with the way ham gear is flying off the listings on ebay, those collected bits and pieces of hardware will
fly faster than all those vintage Heath transmitters.

Re: Why can't new radios be made to sound good?

I went back to original equipment in my Jeep to regain wide AM sound. I'd be interested in hearing about radios sold today for vehicles that have good, wide AM sound if there are any available! All excellent suggestions in your post, and easily done by anyone. But unless the public is educated..ie ...

Re: Bunch of rigid line connectors... where to sell them?

Try listing them on craiglist or ebay. You will sell those in a heartbeat listing them at either place.

Re: Neural Upmix AES issue

Almost a zombie thread, but a follow up. Turns out the issue wasn't the upmix after all , but a failing Panacea clean-quiet switch. The switcher was sent back to Harris for repair and a loaner was put in place, which resolved the issue. They will reinstall the switcher upon repair. Question I would...

Re: What should a new guy be doing?

Some of these guys might be happy to have someone tag along on jobs provided they know you are serious about entering the industry. Amen to that...I'm always happy to have someone help out that is serious and doesn't mind the often boring aspects of tuning arrays. You can learn a lot just by holdin...
