Re: OMNIA.7AM

I have some experience with the AM Omnia but not the newest one. I use the 9400 at two location one is HD the other is not. Both are sports so you have the spoken word and the phone calls. Adjusting processing usually takes 2 or more days of adjustment, looking at modulation and listening on at leas...

Re: You need this

Obvious question is will one of these outlets make my Omnia or Optimod sound better/louder? Maybe get outlets for the whole air chain? Is there a ratings increase if you use one of these outlets on a Voltair?

Re: Broadcasting Yearbook, 1935-2010

I wonder if this website has some of the same principles of a Black Hole. Not in a Bad way but the website does draw you in and I always loose track of time. Like time does not exist. Sometimes I feel as if I'm transported back in time. Usually I come away happily dazed with no sense of time when I ...

Most important, Heated Leather Seats for those early morning calls. This year in the Puget Sound we had a little Snow. To play it safe I parked about 15 feet from the building at the KJR-am site and walked the last few feet in the...eight inches of snow. If I get stuck at the transmitter site in the...

Re: NPR Story Says Towers Kill Birds

When I do find a dead bird at one of the transmitter sites, it's at the base of a power pole where they got between the insulator and ground. Never at the base of a tower or any where near it. Had 5 or 6 crows take out all three fuse holders on a pole. All the crows were on the ground at the base of...
