Re: AM station to shut down at end of May 2019

As well, an STA request was filed that same day to “return” to silent status, so they claim to have been on the air for some short space of time before the end of May, which at that time would have been the license saving maneuver, since it was due to expire May 31st. Anyways, it looks like there ar...

Re: KRIS-TV tower collapse

In that first linked article it says, “At 12:37 p.m. (4 hours after the collapse), KRIS-TV was informing their viewers that windy conditions affected their signal on various cable systems throughout the area.” I’ll say.

Re: Replace Car Radio Antenna?

Me, too with the duck on my Fiat. AM reception is superb and noise isn’t much of a, if any, factor. This is a Bose stereo system though and not the stock radio.

Re: ADC Punch Block Tool

I have never used one in a broadcast facility.” Heh. Young whippersnapper! I participated in a major studio buildout in 1995-96. We used patch bays extensively. Not my design, though. I was kind of surprised but ok with it since we were so used to operating that way. In the end we didn’t use them n...
