Re: Gates 5 PA Low Amps

I have one of these things I have to take care of. Would be prudent to pull the PA boards to check the little three pin plastic terminals that hold the MOSFETS. You are likely to find some of them have burned. At the same time you can check for bad transistors.

Re: Marti Crystals

Bohn Broadcast (BohnBroadcast.com) also services the older crystal controlled Marti equipment.

If you register on the BE site, I believe they still have the older Marti manuals available as a PDF.

That's essentially what we had to do. The agency was using yet another company collect proposals for this buy. That company was the one wanting this "proposal XML" format used. We eventually attached an XML file of our proposal to an e-mail sent to the agency--the agency then sent the XML format pro...
