Re: PPM Monitor

not sure about the monitor, but for encoders I got this gem from someone at nielsen when ours was giving an error at bootup (after a Storm induced power outage) "Fatal Errors will often recover if both front panel buttons are pushed and released while the encoder is in bypass." youd need to find the...

Any Idea what level and ESE device expects to recieve? havent had any luck getting it to workbut I have to make an adjustment in the rack room on the evertz and run down the h...

Re: Harris HT-35CD No filament voltage.

AS I recall, the schematic I was looking at said we should have 11V triggering the SSR, which we checked for and it was present. When I get up there next week I'll look at the contactor, and also the controller board.

Thanks!

Harris HT-35CD No filament voltage.

About two weeks ago my HT-35CD went off air, A storm was rolling in, I assume lightning strike. Arrived to the site to find the mains service panel breaker tripped. Put the exciter on air and did a little troubleshooting, but it was late and a storm rolling in so I left the site to sleep and return ...

Re: Audio cable for AM transmitter site? Star Quad or Ethernet or What?

I've got a rhino labeler. I had problems with labels coming off so I just use clear heatshrink like others have mentioned. I found out the hard way if your heat gun is too hot, you get a blacked out label. I bought a little heat gun from a local craft store, used for shrinking film around gift baske...

Re: STL setup

I understand this may not apply here, but I don't see the ongoing resistance to having processing at the transmitter. Now that most modern processors can be accessed online, if it suits your purpose, what's the problem? In the Seattle market, I know of several stations that do this as a matter of p...

Re: Smpte timecode to ESE timecode

I'm not even replacing an ESE generator, we never had one. We are primarily a radio plant, with a small and simple Cable tv channel (Computer>modulator>fiber converter>CATV Headend). it generates probaly 1-2% of our annual revenue so much money is not spent on it. Our Radio Consoles have built in cl...

Re: AES/EBU utility mixer

hmmm.IF I had to, I have a pile of lynxone cards that won't work past windows xp, if it's not on a network, no worries.

I was also looking at maybe finding a cheap yamaha DME 32 on ebay....which would be way overkill.

Smpte timecode to ESE timecode

Hello, I have an EVERTZ 5600 MSC master clock. I have other equipment that wants ESE TC-89. I have very little budget. Whats the cheapest way to get ESE TC-89 from say SMPTE or NTP? I can find very little info on the actual differences or protocol of ESE, I suppose they don't hand that out though th...
