Re: ADC Punch Block Tool

Or just pull the XLRs and plug them together directly.

Re: ADC Punch Block Tool

dirty patch normal at the transmitter site” Sounds familiar. Lost too many brain cells since then. Back then when anything bad happened at KFAB it would wind up in the paper. :oops: :roll: Thought we had the same problem at KCRO in the late 90s. Sound would just go out at random times. The previous...

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...

Routing Internet Traffic

I’m involved in a work from home project and have a question for the group. My problem is that when the neighbors get home around 6pm, it seems they clog up things such that my upload speed, which is supposed to be ‘up to’ 10Mbps according to the suckers at Cox, sinks to about 3M - or zero right thi...

Re: Serial Port Combining for Multi Instance Automation

Terry Cowan, who hangs out on the CRTech forum might also have a solution for this.

Re: Barix Audio Issue

It only occurs during program material. I’m confused by this statement. How else would you know it’s going on except for program material? Ones I’ve set up for church remotes and such use 600 ms buffers, which I thought was the default setting. Had very few problems and nothing like this. But there...

Re: Commercial breaks firing off for no reason - HELP

News Director needs Diversity Sensitivity training to avoid triggering? Joking aside, do you ever simulcast the two channels? If so (and not knowing any more details of your configuration, I’m sort of guessing), inspect your commands or macros. There may be an “unmute” missing that caused a trigger ...

Re: AM signal interaction?

Thanks much. This is all very helpful. There is also a station right smack dab between the two - 70 kHz away from both in different directions - which would mask the existence of a 70 kHz spur. On the other side of the high station there are no locals 70 and 140 kHz out but there is one 60 kHz out. ...

AM signal interaction?

A friend noticed an interesting phenomenon that I, too, noticed once but never looked into. 2 AM stations 140 kHz apart. The one higher in freq. is 10000 watts most of the day, non-D; the one lower in freq. is 1000 watts day, 2-tower directional. Likely none of that matters. Or does. These sites are...

Re: EAS Monitoring Requirements

Hello Jim, To my eyes, the assignments page of the Oregon state plan appears to utilize the convention of using the local frequency (i.e.: translator or satellite station) for a station’s monitoring assignments along with the callsign of the parent station, even though technically that is not the ca...

Re: Sony camera leap day bug

So they must have changed the date to 2/29/2020 to test this (and found: Ruh-roh). Which suggests one could change the date to enable function on the 29th. Unless one can’t.

2/29 & 3/1 could turn out to be slow news days!

Another one bites the dust

On a happier note, Nebraska’s oldest station will hit 100 in April 2022.
