Yes...we've come a long way from the fire-spouting FM2.5H3 I first took care of 34 years ago.

Anything wrong with the BE box to the left?

No, nothing wrong with it. I have a PA module giving me a few problems, but as long as I don't push it too hard it's alright.

The first FM transmitter I ever got my mitts on was a CCA2500E. now, that same power is in 5 RUs.

The audio processor is larger than the transmitter. :lol:

Elenos packs 5kW into a 4U box. 99 LBS.

I could fit 6-7 of them in the rack that holds my Armstrong solid state 5KW.
I think at that level of stuffage (and the number of surface mount devices I see in the pics) the box is probably barely field repairable.

The Nautel definitely is--lost a module--Nautel sent a new one--pulled it out of the rack-flipped it on its back-made 5 solder connections and back on the air full power.

Did need help to get it out of the rack--weighs 60 pounds.

These Nautels are rock solid. It's all I spec anymore. They are now what Harris and BE used to be.

4 year warranty and good service certainly helps.
