I'm late to the party, as usual, but congrats, Chris.

Re: Dynamax Module Auto Turn-On After Power Outage

@Dale: I'd be interested in what you find out as I have an MX-12 I use for personal use and having a particular module come back online after a power drop would be a Godsend.

Remembering Chris Tobin

I was devastated when I received word that broadcast engineer Chris Tobin passed away due to a heart attack. Besides serving as engineering talent for a variety of broadcast stations Chris often co-hosted the This Week in Radio Tech audio/video podcast with Kirk Harnack. I had the pleasure of workin...

Re: Walmart Drive-In Movies Using FM Transmitter

Then again, with Ajit Pai leaving who knows what direction the FCC will take.

Re: Does licensed or limited access wifi exist?

I know a colleague of mine is using the licensed Ubiquity dishes between a studio and transmitter site for security camera backhaul and emergency backhaul for the satellite dish at the site. I don't recall the particulars but he did state that after getting it all dialed in that it worked quite well.

Re: Out of Control Audio

I know I had be transcoding all my WAV files with dBpoweramp which uses the EBU-R128 standards as a plugin, but obviously that obliterates any metatags embedded by / for the automation. The method mentioned above sounds interesting but I've already tackled more than 40,000 audio tracks so now I'm on...

Re: Disabling Windows Features Updates

I know at my office we set the ethernet connections as "metered" so that will slow down updates, supposedly preventing unexpected reboots. We also run a local WSUS so we only push updates we want to control. If you have a copy of Win 10 build 1903 you can grab the instructions here to aggr...

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

Interesting, as I heard them pop on which I presumed was to keep the license in active status. Would be interested in knowing if QU is keeping the station or it's something they're arranging for a sale / transfer.

Re: LPB series III referb

I suppose it depends on the reason. Those boards are pretty durable and I had one I was going to install in a high school broadcast studio, but I came across an older Gates board that not only appeared in better condition but was equally as durable (if not better). You'll have to ask youself if it's...

Re: 360 Systems Instant Replay DR-600

I decided to submit a second email using an alternate form on the website and Alan reached out to me. It appears my DR-600, which is 12 years old, has older firmware and the reason why FTP speeds are slow as a dog. He mentioned that the firmware can up upgraded and it would somewhat improve some of ...

Re: 360 Systems Instant Replay DR-600

Don't know if it's due to the pandemic or not but their support via the web site stinks! The last time I needed assistance I actually repaired a Shortcut myself by replacing a chip because they never got back to me. Maybe I'll just try calling them. I know I recommended a computer software replaceme...

360 Systems Instant Replay DR-600

Is 360 Systems still in business? I have a DR-600 Instant Replay with ethernet networking and the FTP function appears somewhat wonky. I previously replaced the internal hard drive with a solid-state drive but never noticed if that affected things or not. I understand many support lines may have red...

Re: simple-free or low cost

I grew very weary about anything from BSI as I heard about a station, I believe in Massachusetts, almost lost it all due to WaveStation being an utter piece of junk. After hearing the story from a radio consultant I decided to steer clear of anything from them. At the time I was considering a low-co...
