Capacitors

I am planning to recap an old Orban FM processor. In the past, I have used Panasonic caps with good results. At one time, Panasonic offered a broad array of caps of various sizes, voltage ratings and values. However, Panasonic now seems to have drastically cut back their offerings, not anything like...

Nautel NV10LT

Gentlemen, what is your opinion of the Nautel NV10LT? We recently installed one. So far, so good. Thru software, the thing seems to monitor every conceivable parameter there is and then some, plus Nautel can remotely bring up the transmitter and help in the trouble shooting process. On air sound is ...

The DAX3 seems a rather stable transmitter and we have had good luck with it. We have lost two power output modules in the last three years. One was under warranty, th...

Re: Worst FM Transmitter

Armstrong 8000B, with four 2kW modules. Works well when it works. God help you when it doesn’t. Lose one 2kW module and reject power in the splitter/combiner jumps sky high and will blow it up if transmitter power isn’t drastically reduced. Lose two modules and, according to factory, Don’t operate a...
