Re: FM3.5 odd problem

I'm not familiar with the FM3.5, but if it's running on 3-phase AC power, perhaps one of the phases is dropping out. I had a similar problem with a Continental 20kw 816R2 that uses SCRs in the xfmr primary to regulate the HV. Turns out a 3PDT 24V relay was bad and it was intermittently dropping the ...

Re: Dealing with mixing products

It just seems that two series LC circuits in parallel, with only a 1kw power capacity, shouldn't take up a full rack cabinet's worth of space. To be fair, the phasor at the 1kw station is quite small; it takes up one rack width and is maybe a few feet tall, about the same size as the AM1A tx. I'm gu...

Re: Dealing with mixing products

I didn't do the EPM spectrums for one station in 2016 but I was asked to do it in 2017. Both are running B-E transmitters, the one producing the mixing is only 1kw directional full-time. I looked hard to find the mixing sum but it just wasn't there. The carrier was 320mV/m which is certainly healthy...

Re: RadioWorld Magazine

Mark: Perhaps your subscription, like mine, finally expired. Email Kwentin K. Keenan, Circulation Manager, NewBay: kkeenan [ at ] nbmedia [ dot ] com and let her know. She sent me a link to a personalized subscription screen that I just had to answer some questions on, and after that she sent me lin...

Re: SSL Certificate

According to the current Opera downloads requirements, Windows 7 and higher, just like everybody else. It MAY have worked with WinXP at one time and there MAY still be a version one could download that supports it, but their download server or gateway is currently inoperative so I couldn't get to th...

Re: RadioWorld Magazine

I never even knew there was an "Author's Page". Maybe I've just never fully perused the older web site. At times it was so cluttered I'd close my eyes and just click on the menu item I wanted to see, and could easily get to the article that interested me. The new site seems to be aimed solidly at th...

Re: RadioWorld Magazine

"The new phone books are here! The new phone books are here!" (from Steve Martin's "The Jerk") I actually got an email from the circulation/subscription person yesterday with a link to the March 14 2018 issue of RW. Paul McLane said they're slowly putting content back on the site. How far back is un...

Re: SSL Certificate

Now, does Opera work under WinXP? Since I'm still in the stone age (and enjoying all the programs that work in XP without aggravation), that's an obvious requirement.

Re: SSL Certificate

"Do you mean that it lost the http:// info? That should still be accessible under Tools|Options|Security|Saved Logins." I think the issue was that the previously saved username/password was for the http:// URL, and since the https:// URL is not identical, Firefox couldn't auto-fill the username/pass...

Re: SSL Certificate

The site doesn't seem to be accessible at all now with IE8, either http or https. Luckily Firefox got me in but it lost the saved login info.

Re: RadioWorld Magazine

Well, after 3 hours I got a response from NewBayMedia's circulation department. According to their records, my last renewal was in March 2015 so they stopped sending issues to me at the end of 2017. I know I've mailed back every subscription post card I've received, but who knows if they ever get ba...

Re: RadioWorld Magazine

I was just on the site to find out who to send a subscription-related email to. THAT was easy to find. They now have something in the "Digital Editions" section but so far the only content seems to be "Inside the ... issue" items that are brief summaries, NOT entire issues. Totally useless to me. I ...

Re: RadioWorld Magazine

It seems they just pulled up the carpet and moved from NYC to Virginia, and left everything behind, which includes email addresses and all that good content. They may also have sent something to me via email but after getting so much spam from them I probably tossed the message. I never got any pape...

Re: RadioWorld Magazine

Thanks. I had someone else view the web site along with me and we're both (not) seeing the same thing, so it's not my computer selectively blanking out parts of the web page. Archives? Digital Editions? All seems to have vanished. The limited content they DO let you see has no dates on anything. Art...

RadioWorld Magazine

Has anyone gotten their printed magazine since January? Mine seem to have stopped coming. Their web site has been completely redone, it's vastly simpler, and lacking an awful lot of stuff that used to be there, including digital editions of a lot of past issues, so I can't even get PDFs of the ones ...
