Re: XDS PAD Data

Glad you got it working. I set out to try this at one point before discovering that the Marti-PNP1000 transmitter will never pass RDS data anyway, even if I get the PAD data out to it. But the stream will so maybe I'll try again. bookmarking this for future reference.

Re: BE AM-1A power issue.

The first Chief I worked under gave me a chunk of cosmoline (Spelling?) for the same use. I still have it...somewhere....

I do have 1RU of space between my PA and Exciter cabs.

Yes paper/cardboard over the holes would work too.

Re: BE AM-1A power issue.

The supply I ordered was drop in replacement and I had it back on the air in 10 minutes. The supply I pulled out was a power-one MAP40-3003. From What I can the the starguide receiver supplies should work as well, and are rated at 60W output instead of 40W, unfortunately the 2 starguides I had both ...

Re: BE AM-1A power issue.

_Sometimes_ if you flip the front panel breaker on and off a few times, stopping long enough to see if the lights stay on, the power supply will work for another short while... I think that the cover is a contributing factor to PS failures. Stick in a new 9v battery while you are down there... Good...

BE AM-1A power issue.

So My AM-1a went off the air. When I get to the building, all the LED's on the two racks are blinking rapidly, at the same time, so it looks like something is failing in the power supply cutting on and off rapidly (Since all the LED's light up briefly on power on). I shut the front panel breaker off...

Re: Harris HT-35CD No filament voltage.

Hmm.... No solution yet, but it has worked flawlessly in the bypassed state since....

I really should find the proper solution some time......

I'd rather get a solid state TX in there though....but finances what they are after this year, not likely to happen anytime soon.
