Pira RDS

Post by lewiscallaway » Thu Dec 29, 2016 9:38 am

Has anyone here tried those Pira RDS encoders? Do they work well for you? We are looking at the P132 encoder, but we are wondering how well they work.

Thanks!

Just set two of them up on translators last month. There is a little learning curve with the software used to program them but once they're running they are pretty much bulletproof.

That's great! The other stations I work for have expensive Deva Broadcast encoders, so I was pretty surprised when I found out the price on these!

Have one, and it works fine. However, all we wanted was our "identifier" (V96.9) and slogan on the second page.

Some folks have figured out how to feed song & title, but that was over my head & not needed for us.

Where'd you get it? How much?
Trim to fit, paint to match, tune for minimum smoke.

It's available at Pira.cz. The mid range model which does ethernet and everything is about $250 usd.
