Re: PC based multi-band processor

I'm using Breakaway one for my streams, four instances on one pc which is also generating the four streams. I think it's an i3., handles it no problem.It has different options including livewire/AES67, RDS, Composite output (requires a 192Khz sample rate sound card), low latency monitoring. Designed...

Re: Capacitor replacement.

Flasher is inside the transmitter shack. one flashing beacon on top, dual side mounted steady burning halfway up. Yeah it looks little sketchy...I never paid much attention in the past as the company I worked for didn't own most of the towers we were on and the ones we did own where short enough to ...

This is a single tower non D, but it is a combiner.
Not to put too fine a point on it, but the photos show no DC connection from the tower to ground through the lighting choke. If that is indeed the case you need to add a static drain.
Any chance that could be somewhere else?

Re: Capacitor replacement.

This is a single tower non D, but it is a combiner. tower originally built for 780 had a 1400 added about 18 months ago (a few months before I took over). Height is 82.3 meters, at 1400 it is 138.4 degrees and at 780 it is 77.1 degrees, according to the license anyway. I'm far more experienced with ...

Re: Capacitor replacement.

didn't see that value at RF parts. I always forget about the nebraska surplus place, I'll check. I think the combiner is a phasetek so I can call them, I figured it might be one of those cheaper if you find your own source kind of parts. Google gave me mostly ebay links to the (older?) brown style y...

Capacitor replacement.

The rodent has been evicted, but I have some lightning damage to these capacitors on my tower lighting Choke, anyone know where I can purchase replacements? I'm not familiar with this type, given my limited AM experience.

Re: Processing Pre or Post STL?

Doesn't the 2200 have a serial port for remote control? You could put an IP to serial converter at the midpoint for remote control, if you have IP access at the midpoint.

Re: Commscope Connectors and Andrew 7/8" Line

I don't know That I"ll ever need to, I don't have any old 7/8" line where I am now. But I kept it around in case I (or someone else) ever needed it.
