I was at ZL1AA a few weeks ago. Interesting to hear it from the other side. Sure hard to get through the US wall, and get contacts. Hope to try again.

This looks like the perfect place for my first post!

I Engineer for small town radio. I enjoy doing everything from Audio to RF and IT... All the way to writing our own custom software for doing our RDS. I wouldn't give up small town radio for anything. I would rather do dishes and listen to true LOCAL full service radio, than work for a corporate giant. I'm kind of an odd duck that way. I don't follow the money, I follow the fun and adventure. I love the challenge of putting a transmitter back on the air with nothing more than tape and jumper cables. Yes, I have pictures! We ran with jumper cables until the parts came in!

73, Scott - NE8E

That's because you're born with it. I believe there is something in our genes that make us do this.
Why do so many work, for such low pay, and high stress, and yet want to not only keep doing it, but keep moving up the chain too.
It has to be something we're born with...

I think you're onto something there, as this morning I asked myself the same question at 3:30 AM on the third night of chasing a 4 tower DA issue that turned out to be a hidden sample system error on one tower. :(

On the plus side, it's now fixed.

If I was in this for the money I'd be in a little padded cell by now. 8)

Sounds like something I had last week with a transmitter issue that was hidden due to a false alarm, and an error on my part by using the wrong sized relay.
Kept us at 70% for two days.
