Re: What? You don't even bill a kringle?

Now, that is a classic description of what old age can do to a formerly sharp mind. I'm going to have to re-do my :roll: "standard fee invoice"

Deep:

You work too cheap! You need a "standard fee structure" like I have. My standard fee for "stuff" is a cup of coffee, payable next time we meet.

Re: BE AM-6A RF Out Problem

Dave: Don't know why I didn't think of this sooner. If you bypass the BE tuning unit, and fire the xmttr up at low power......say 500 watts, this might allow the xmttr to come up so you can either point the finger at the tuner, or something else. I have a BE 1KW AM backup running direct into a phaso...

Re: BE AM-6A RF Out Problem

Ok, guess I miss-read the initial post. Could very well be in the tuner. BTW-Gil at BE retired quite some time back, and at last word was hiding out like a hermit in the mountains of Montana, not wanting to look at another xmttr. Do I blame him? Not in the least! I'd much rather be leaning up agains...

Dave:

Sent you a PM with the details of quad removal. Unfortunately, I didn't have the connector make and model recorded. Will get that to you later.

Re: BE AM-6A RF Out Problem

I service an AM-10A that had lots of difficulties in it's early days. I found numerous failures in the combiner boards and had to replace several. Now, the other problems I had sounded similar to this one. Remove several modules associated with the bad indicating one in the same quad enclosure . Nex...

Re: What's with all the spam lately?

I try to report every one I see to the "remover in charge" as I get up early here in "central fly over country".

They get deleted, usually quite quickly.

Re: SX 2.5 Won't Power on No Lights

"War story time"............ Back in the day when I was selling xmttrs, I always insisted that a complete check of all nuts and bolts be done during installation. Quite frequently, I assisted in installations and we always checked hardware. We always found a few that could be tightened more. The ori...

Re: AM Transmitter Shelter

Those cell buildings are really nice. If you go that route, MEASURE YOUR EQUIPMENT TO SEE IF IT WILL FIT IN THE DOOR . Second the comment on the sampling lines and also the transmission line as the tx lines factor into the phasing of the array. The other thought is to go with a prefab customized out...

Re: Harris HT-35CD No filament voltage.

Strange situation to say the least. Had run into filament voltage probs on an HT-25 (I think the low level circuits are pretty much the same as the '35) that were traced to a failing external fil voltage regulator. Though, probably not in your case. Only other think I can think of is a failing fil v...

Got one other story....... "Back in the day", I got a call that an FM was off the air "up Nort". Found the basement got flooded and the FM rig was "kinda wet". Gas company guy for some reason visited the site and shut off the gas to the station. Station experienced a power failure and the sump pump ...

Re: Gates One Blows PA Fuses w/ Modulation

Waaaay back when, Harris had a similar fuse holder issue in their DX-10. That case was caused by insufficient tightening of the bolt holding the clip on the circuit board. The clip wasn't tight enough to provide proper tension to the fuse which failed slowly due to heating.

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...
