Re: Cablewave 738350 3-1/8" EIA Flange (pressurization)

There is one trick that might work IF THE FLANGE AT THE XMTR is gas tight. You could disconnect those two outside flanges and drill two small holes in each of the insulators to allow gas to pass thru them. Bolt them back together. Then seal up the holes on the exterior part of the flange, thus elimi...

"WARNING, WILL ROBINSON"!

Weeeelllll! It's headed East so get your long handled underwear with the built-in trap door ready. Here in the Racine area where I live, we had negative numbers we ain't seem since the 70's. Car started ok after being outside all this time. I think we hit -25 overnight. Rear view mirror temp readout...

Re: Snow removal on 5 meter dish

Second on the black smooth cover. Got a dish on top of a hill that gets covered. Instead of it hitting me on the head, with the dish right on the ground the snow always falls into my boots. Brrrrr, it gets cold. However, if you have a shop vac handy, take and reverse the hose into the exhaust and hi...

Re: HT-10 APC issues

You might try bypassing the IPA and feed the final direct from the exciter to see if the AM noise changes to rule out an IPA problem. There should be an adaptor on the back rail in the xmttr to use for the bypass test. You will need to raise the output power of the exciter to get enough drive to the...

Re: 100 OHM 100W resistor in Harris HT35FM PA Cavity

I am gonna SWAG this one. I don't think location is super critical. I have a gut feeling the resistor was placed in a "convenient and inexpensive" location.

Re: BE FM-5BS PROBLEM

Which smoke---outta our nostrils, or ears, or both? :lol:

We have used the H, BH, GBH, and the GBFH with total immunity. :twisted:

Our next effort is to go thru the metering board and wiring one more time. We could have missed something really simple by over-thinking the problem

Re: BE FM-5BS PROBLEM

Hi Chuck: Remember, the controller/controller cage and APC works in another rig. Entire IB is on line at BE......but the one major drawing I need....the wire runs with numbers is not in the book. That makes tracing this stuff really hard. There is a full blown filter board in the controller cage----...

These were two of the three best radio engineers I ever met/sold equipment to, (Al Antlitz) was the third guy) and were always trying to top each other with...

Re: Auditronics 200 210 or 212 manual

Forgot to mention,,,,I got a 210 in Racine, and that thing's been a "brick". Only failure I can recall is recently the input select push buttons oxidized on a couple input modules. Two squirts of De-Oxit and we were back in business. Board was installed back in the late 70]s as I recall. Only negati...
