Re: AM primary station to Translator separation

An AM fill-in translator cannot have a 60 dBu contour which exceeds the greater of the daytime 2 mV/m contour or a 25 mile radius circle from the AM transmitter site. There are no exceptions. Another FM translator outside that area *can* rebroadcast the fill-in via direct off the air pickup of the f...

Re: FIM-21/ 41 Repairs

Mooretronix claims to be able to calibrate the RCA WX-2 series and the Nems-Clarke 120 series as well as the PI FIM-21 and FIM-41. I don't know how their service compares to what PI used to do, but it IS at least an alternative. http://www.mooretronix.com/news.php Bob M. I thought Bob had shut down...

Re: FIM-21/ 41 Repairs

My experience (and those of others I am familiar with) is they really like to replace the rotary switches, variable capacitors and potentiometers. I have never seen one come back for "only" the $575-ish calibration fee...it is always at least $1000 more. I understand the labor involved and the need ...

Re: base insulator

You might have better luck calling them.

The Outlook problem I suspect is something connected with the notorious Microsoft updates.
I doubt it. I have never had an update screw with Outlook. I am also running Malwarebytes (4.1.0) and Win10Pro.

Re: Microsoft Outlook problems?

I use Outlook "365" now but have used it under various versions for years. The only time I've had a problem is when the *.pst file became corrupt due to a hard disk issue about 12 years ago. Are you using it as POP3 or IMAP for inbound? Also, what are you using for outbound SMTP? Are you sure your p...

Re: New Antenna and Tower for WPSD

Did you copy this from a news article or from the station's website? If it is from the former, please post a link to the article, otherwise this is a copyright violation. Thanks.

Re: Harris FM 20 K pro and con views

That "free" transmitter will cost you more over the next 10 years in added electrical use and maintenance than a new solid state would. If your electric rates are a bit high then the payback is even faster.

Re: CSP phasor controller

Phasetek (and CSP and Vector Technologies before it) have used that same basic controller design for decades. I'm not a fan either. Last one I ran across ended up with 24VDC slave relays fed from the contactor microswitches so I could attach a little LED to one set of contacts and see what was reall...

Thanks. I tried using my standard GatesAir login credentials; can't get through.

Same here. Website login doesn't work for FTP. Neither does the one I used to use on the old FTP site. So I guess we'll all need Fossil to download everything. :mrgreen:

Spend the money. If it isn't worth $400 it isn't worth doing.

Re: Suggestions for FM Tuner

It is highly unlikely that you are going to find a tuner which would supply a usable composite output, meet your budget, and fit in 1 RU. Are you just using this as off-air monitoring for the station when you aren't there? An old mono FM radio is pretty easily converted to "composite out" since they...

I'm pretty sure all of the "SR" series receivers use the same DB15 pinout. I've attached it and the manual page from an SR30/40.

Re: WCBS/880 no longer HD-AM

I suspect your data point reflects a malfunctioning or improperly configured system. It would also be interesting to know what the field intensity is at those remote villages. If you are trying to serve them at a 0.1 mV/m level then it may be enough to drop it into the noise, but all of the ones I h...
