Re: MOLEX CONNECTORS FOR AUDIOARTS R10

AWESOME!!
Thanks for the extremely quick response. I got a project to add an audio switch for use to bypass console in case of failure. I will pre-wire the plugs so I can speed up the installation.

MOLEX CONNECTORS FOR AUDIOARTS R10

Does anyone in this vast knowledge base know what the MOLEX male and female part numbers for the R10/15 are?

The manual only gives AUDIOARTS parts numbers, not MOLEX. They are 12 pin.

Tnx,

Always tell them "Groucho sent you".

Glad to hear problem solved. Today I'm doing my "Horace Greely" imitation, except I ain't young no more!

Re: PPM Monitor

Another senior moment......get the serial number off the rear of the encoder, along with the model number. That will help speed up the process of determining if it is theirs, or yours.

Re: Replacing sample lines

Wild crazy thought....... Waaaayy back around 1982 or 1983, Cablewave had a bad batch of material. The cup inner connectors inside the connector that mated with the center conductor of the coax were failing due to metal fatigue/or just plain brittle material. The cup connection had a slotted section...

Re: Replacing sample lines

There are two different requirements as I recall. 1) equal electrical lengths - also called phase stabilized - again as I recall 2) unequal lengths for each tower, same type of line. If you replace with a different type line, you will need to do a proof - two if it is D/N, and the tower is used in b...

Re: Porcelain Insulators Cracking

Hi Dave: Well, I have built several DA's, worked on a lot of them and built a couple phasors and ATU's. Only time I ever had cracking was when the insulators weren't mounted with the fiber standoff washers, or caused lightning strikes. Those washers should be used on both ends. I do recall busting a...

Re: Willis/Sears Tower FM Coverage Estimate

There is one other detail I will add..... One of the stations going up in the early days got stopped by the FCC as it was discovered that the station would be technically interfering with a station to the Southeast. Simple solution was to reduce power to the basket on the SE face of the tower making...

Thanks for that detail. First time seeing this info. I remember "back in the day" looking at the good axial ratio charts.

Re: BULLET HOLE???

If you look at the second picture, you will see the horizon in the distance. The orientation of the hole, if done by a bullet, would require the shooter to be nearly even with the element, and at the same elevation. If shot from the ground, the hole would show signs of a glancing impact, and at that...
