Re: computer audio interface - alternative to 3.5mm

Re: computer audio interface - alternative to 3.5mm

OK. I had somebody send me an older original Henry USB Matchbox. A nicely built box but does not work correctly under anything newer than Windows XP according to Henry Eng. I have Windows 8.1 The OS identifies the box as a mono microphone, putting left channel audio into both left and right inputs a...

Re: Voter system for repeater

kkiddkkidd I thought about this for a little bit. So... I guess just changing the PL tone keeps the main RX from opening up when you're trying to hit the remote RX. And then if the RVS-8 sees only 1 input (because the main isn't opening) the voting choice is easy because there is only 1 input presen...

Voter system for repeater

Anybody have experience implementing a voting system to bring additional remote receivers into a ham radio repeater?

The LDG Electronics RVS-8 looks like it might have been a good choice but it is no longer made.

Commercial systems look to be many thousands of dollars.

I've got a line on a source for very reasonably priced, gently used Compellors.

Only processed church audio on Sundays... ;)

Re: computer audio interface - alternative to 3.5mm

I had another company station offer me a Henry USB Matchbox for the cost of shipping.

Re: computer audio interface - alternative to 3.5mm

Oh, and did I mention I am blessed with small form factor PC's with half-height slots?

That's why I'm looking for an external solution.

Re: looking for review of dbx 266XS

All, The "production" here is on-the-fly recordings for AM talk morning show interviews and phone calls. Not really high quality stuff. And since it is live there are no re-takes. I've been doing this for 40 years and you still can't get the announcers to watch their levels in any kind of station, w...

computer audio interface - alternative to 3.5mm

Back in the day a large PC chassis could hold a card with 1/4 inch TRS balanced jacks on a professional sound card. With newer, smaller chassis these days, those cards (ISA anyway) no longer are an option. In coming into this station, I have inherited the 3.5 mm unbalanced audio jacks built onto the...

looking for review of dbx 266XS

I'm thinking about putting a dbx 266xs https://dbxpro.com/en-US/products/266xs in front of my Audition channel distribution amplifier to control recording levels. I've got way too many peaks hitting 0 dbfs and sounding ratty. At only $150 I'm wondering how good it can be. But is way cheaper than the...

Re: EAS over Barix

My concern is passing the header tones intact so they can be decoded. Any recommended bit rate?

EAS over Barix

I'm looking at the possibility of remotely locating the receiver for one of my EAS monitoring assignments. Of course the least expensive way to bring it back to the station is using Barix over the Internet.

Comments?
thanks,

Re: Barix levels

I've contacted their tech support and after I get it figured out I'll post it.

I'm still interested to know if anybody else has run tones through their units and measured the levels.
