Re: Gates One Blows PA Fuses w/ Modulation

I would strongly suggest finding a way to do the internal measurement under power without cheating interlocks. There’s often a way of sneaking a couple of test leads out of the cabinet without bypassing interlocks. Different situation but I once had to measure some voltage in a Continental 315F 10kw...

Re: High Reflected Power Puzzle

A question: does the spur appear when operating into the dummy load, or only when working into the antenna? What happens when you add your ‘SWR inserter’ with the line feeding the antenna? Forgive me if you’ve already addressed these ideas - the thread’s getting too long for me to remember everything!

Re: Simian Automation Folder Architecture

Yeah I’m sure Simian is way different today than WaveStation was then. Does anyone see any problem doing that? No. I think that’s exactly what you need. In that previous WaveStation installation of mine, the studios were moved while I was on what turned out to be a sabbatical. Someone else set it up...

Re: Simian Automation Folder Architecture

Simian may or may not be different from WaveStation in this regard — and I have no experience with Simian yet — but I found WS would play files from a network drive if UNC paths to the folders were used rather than mapped drives. I had one station with a lot of long-form (block) programs with all fi...

Re: GOBBLE, GOBBLE!

By my high-level mathematics I think that makes you even older!

I actually started being on-call in 1977 but had a long break from that from ‘79 to ‘93. Wasn’t smart enough to avoid getting sucked back in, I guess. We’ll see how long it lasts this time. :lol:

Re: GOBBLE, GOBBLE!

Happy Thanksgiving, all. Mine will be marked by not being on call for the first time since 2003 (and before that back to 1993). Goes with being on the beach. I am starting a new job out of the business Monday. I may yet find a way to screw this up by Christmas!

Re: Suppressing Windows 10 Update and Forced Reboots

I've had Win7 boxes with 80gb drives pretty much self-distruct over time due to limited drive space, even on limited use hardware such as digital signage or kiosk operations. A lot of this is Windows bloating up a certain subfolder under the Windows folder. I’m typing on an Apple device so I can’t ...

Re: Does the FCC keep track somewhere of subchannels?

northpine.com keeps pretty good track of DTV and FM-HD subchannels but only for the Upper Midwest. They do change a lot, probably one reason the FCC doesn’t keep track of them.

Re: RING MY BELL

So does a news story count? (i.e.: part of a newscast rather than a separate “announcement” as we in the industry typically think of as a PSA?) Reading 11.46, it’s just unclear enough (what with the qualifications “...infomercials or programs” [infering that length or being paid for are not issues] ...

Re: RING MY BELL

My VZ flip fone got it, at least it was on the screen for me when I was reunited with it. Didn’t hear it sound off and everything was on. The screen message was not date-time stamped which was less than helpful had it been real. I have an iPhone which isn’t a phone at the moment. (No longer on compa...
