Re: FM transmitter causing significant hum in surround components

OK the point's been made, and the question has been answered really.

Just so you know, the folks here are only telling you this, so you don't get yourself in trouble. (Expensive legal trouble at that).

No one wants to see that happen.

So the question was answered and advice was given.

Re: FM transmitter causing significant hum in surround components

Hi, Thanks for the replies. This isn’t for a licensed radio station; I am just experimenting in the house. My previous (much simpler) build has the components inside a metal chassis with the antenna attached to the rear. I used multi core screened cable for the signal and power cables with the scre...

Re: Offical AMC 8 Transition Thread (was Sat. AMC-8)

Hi all, In helping "wtcmeng" we are still looking at a on site solution to his problem. Our latest tests suggest it may be interference from a cell site just across the road from the dish.

Re: Browser / Java combination for ARC-16 Web access?

1.6.

You have to now use a free account with Oracle to download old java, or you can find it on filehippo.

We have the Burk Webserver at the transmitter, and that is the Java version I Have to use for it.

Re: FCC ULS issues

I think the commission is using a very ancient version of Java.

I gave up and contacted the FCC for help on this.

Maybe 2017 is the year they upgrade from Java 1.6 to something made in the last five years...

Or a better system...

FCC ULS issues

I am having a hell of a time trying to file a form on the FCC's ULS. I get to the initial log in, then select the service I want... then nothing. I've had Java errors, got those cleared up. Now the page just hangs! Why in 2017, is the FCC still using Java? (Why is anyone using Java....) Am I the onl...
