Re: New SBE Member

Our chapter (74) actually started using Zoom for our meetings before the pandemic/epidemic to bring people in that were too far away to travel including our sister chapter in western Nebraska. So we already knew how to use it when we had to! Why, you could even come to our meetings.

Re: Disabling Windows Features Updates

Having a separate VPN for the studio systems should help keep things safe. The extra security is worth the trouble.

Re: Out of Control Audio

And if it is ENCO, and if you choose to do any normalization using Convert be sure to do the procedure on copies of the originals or else have Convert save the newly normalized files to new cut numbers, especially if your music files are MPEG instead of WAV.

Re: Out of Control Audio

Adobe Audition and its Cool Edit predecessor will batch normalize but not sure if the metadata is then saved. One could test it to see. I was thinking the same thing as Kevin: maybe one output level in the sound card virtual mixer is set hot. Another question is whether that setting is getting jacke...

“...the last AM filing window was in 2004...”

Re: New engineer - questions

The original point of the expanded band was to make a place to which stations could migrate that would alleviate interference in the traditional AM band while making a place that was relatively free of interference for the stations which chose to move. So, in order to be on the expanded band a stati...

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.
