100 OHM 100W resistor in Harris HT35FM PA Cavity

Need to replace this resistor and the two fingerstock rings that hold it in place. I cant get Gates air to reply to my parts request (been a week now) so is there anything I need to know about the reistor? I suspect the rings are proprietary, any suggestions for fabricating a replacement? HT-35 PA C...

Re: Harris/Gates support

Been waiting 3 days now for a parts request I put in through the support website the morning of wed. the 28th. I had part numbers from the manual in the request. No response, though it has been assigned to someone. Called today around 11AM CT, got voicemail. Same number I"ve always called, and never...

Re: possible ownership cap rule changes

LHTC--bought two AM's and an FM in Fairmont, and an FM licensed to Westover (Morgantown). The Westover station is the WVU affiliate for Morgantown, because WVRadio didn't want to affiliate with IMG when they were outbid for the broadcast rights. These stations were mostly automated when LHTC bought...

Re: possible ownership cap rule changes

Look at Morgantown-Fairmont-Clarksburg WV, where most of the viable signals are owned by WV Radio Corp. and the AJG family trust (which is realistically the same management). And won't improve the industry. We have two country stations, two CHR stations, and two AC stations in my market --run by co...

Re: Rivendell Music metadata

It has been a while since I used rivendell, but I helped someone with similar issues over the phone last week so here goes. The wiki is not always best.....often conflicting or outdated info. Currently the rlm is the way to do it. You will need a .conf file for shoutcast, on my friends system it was...

Re: Harris Z FM-HD Problem

I Found a copy of the exciter manual (while looking for some other files) it says basically what I told you above. 6.3.3.1 HD RUN, HD Buff, EL RUN, DSP RUN Warnings These warnings can be caused by configuring the Exciter to HD mode and not having a reliable input from the Exporter via the Ethernet c...

Re: Harris Z FM-HD Problem

Also if your exporter is an embedded device it had a webpage you could login to and check some status, you'd need its IP address of course. As I recall there was a utility in the Importer that helped me find that or log in. again sorry it's a bit hazy it's been over a year since I messed with that t...

Re: Harris Z FM-HD Problem

I won't claim to be an expert, but I took care of an HD-FM for a few years. Transmitter was Harris HPX-20, Exporter was HDE-200, Importer was HDI-100. The exporter "Exports" the HD data stream to the transmitter, in my case over an Intraplex HD-link STL (950, one way). Your Analog stations signal go...

Re: New UPS suggestion

Also a LOT of UPSes will shut off and stay off if a battery goes bad, especially during the self-test. Things go along fine until that self-test, then the unit shuts off with no apparent reason, and you're dead in the water. Timely battery replacement helps. I've found a 3 year lifetime to be reaso...

Re: New UPS suggestion

I really Like STACO, the UNISTAR seriesis what I've mostly used. They are online as well. they do have a fan that I wouldn't call noisy, but I would warn you it Could be an issue if you don't think ahead about placement. I had no choice but to put one under the console desk, and while it didn't casu...

SAS 64000 Manual or DXE-256 pinout

I have accquired an old SAS 64000 router frame and in its module compliment is a DXE-256 AES/EBU Digital I/O card. I found a manual online but it doesn't even mention the DXE-256 card. the Brochure does mention the card but it has no pinout. I'm sure I could figure it out from trial and error, or ma...

Re: ASI Card AES cable

Someone on another forum was kind enought to send me 9 cables for the cost of shipping. these have the 26 pin connector on one end and a regular 15 pin D-SUB on the other, similar to the analog cables on our current nexgen which were custom made by RCS/Prophet when it was installed. I can wire a mat...
