Re: Management ignored me when I suggested LPFM....

i'm not sure how that would effect carrier current operation maybe one of the RF experts here could, but you state it's code to have them solidly grounded at the transformer and apparently neutral loading passes transformer and these guys experiments that seem to work pretty well would suggest that ...

Re: Management ignored me when I suggested LPFM....

yes they had older electrical grids where the signal followed along the neutral lines for about 4 miles leaking off the lines along the way. I also think the local qrm at their frequency was not too bad either. also these towns were small city like where there was not more than 500ft between rows of...

Re: Management ignored me when I suggested LPFM....

Here is something you may want to try. your mileage may vary (IE: sometimes it works great and sometimes it works absolutely shitty) depending on how your utility has the wiring setup and whether it is above ground or beneath ground. you may want to experiment using a neutral loaded configuration ca...

Streamlicensing and live365, are there others who cover licensing, hosting, etc for one fee.

Re: Arrakis 12,000 series console issues

just an update on this i went to the guy's home studio last weekend and grounded the board chassis to the electrical ground and all the issues disappeared. amazing what a lack of and electrical ground will cause. now i can move onto wiring the studio up. thanks to all who responded in this thread :-)

Re: Arrakis 12,000 series console issues

yea it has the prefader patch for the effects loop. i jumpered that and it is passing audio the reason i thought it was not passing audio is the meters appear to be out of calibration i can push the audio to distortion and the meters barely move. i have also discovered a new problem which i hope the...

i run a non commercial (no Commercials / PSA only) part 15 am in both 15.221 mode (Neutral loaded Carrier current) and remote 15.219 site (3m ant / 100mW input to final) would that qualify as an over the air terrestrial signal for the purposes of getting the lower streaming rate? i would like to add...

Re: Need Dip Switch settings on (/\/\) Motorola 1310

i wound up grabbing one of those Radio Engineering Associates AMM-SD1 monitors. figured it was cheap enough and more accurate than messing with the old Motorola monitor and takes up less rack space :-)
