Re: QEI 671 FM Mod Monitor

Don't know that model but some of a similar age--I'm thinking the Belar series--were fixed tuned.

Re: Synchronizing FM over IP?

We experimented feeding a booster with a pair of Comrex Bric Links. First, in order to synchronize the audio, you would need to find some way to delay the main transmitter audio to match the transmission delay to the relay. We were finding a variable delay time which then adds to the complexity. Had...

Re: computer dropping off network

Looked into folding back to 7, but this was a refurb computer.

Got an external ss drive, installed new os on it, then transferred over the files we needed. Appears to be stable--at least until the next time Microsoft finds a way to start installing updates.

Re: computer dropping off network

Also found that we can't uninstall the last Windows update. Looks like re-installing the OS.

Expect a memo any day from Microshaft suggesting we buy the "ultra-pro" version of Windows 10 for only $699.99--yearly subscription!

Re: computer dropping off network

No, we initially had a problem with the regular network interface port connection to the network. The USB device was left over from an old Storck install--the NIC in that computer went bad, so we used that device for a network connectoruntil the Storck box went back to WWOne. So we tried the USB dev...

Re: The-1 or FX-30

MS-15....they revised the AFC modulator boards in the MX-15 to cure unlock problems --what became known as the "Axel-F" phenomenon (1984) (Harold Faltermeyer) a couple of years later. That's from Beverly Hills Cop--begins with a couple of beats and a very low synthesized note. Then Sounds of Silence...

computer dropping off network

HP windows 10 box. Runs automation, luckily programming is off satellite so handles mostly spots. However, we need it on the network to drop in logs, spots and internet access for pulling news, sports off FTP sites. Will not stay connected to the network. We had an adapter--USB device to provide net...

Re: The-1 or FX-30

Been a while, but my memory is that the FX-30 boards are mounted on stand-offs, similar to the FX-50. You should be able to just disconnect the header type connectors and pull each board out to work on them. Where you might find a problem is if the output transistor is toast.

Re: The-1 or FX-30

I would be inclined to go with the FX-30, as it is easier to work on. The THE-1 uses circuit boards from the MX series exciters--but mounted in a weird kind of folding edge connector into a cage. How much drive is needed? The THE-1, as I recall, is a 50 watt exciter.

Which is the present problem with the 8100, since everyone else is using some flavor of multiband processor.

Re: FM Radio Broadcasting Data System

3% of total modulation, not khz. Higher injection level helps--to a point--U.S. allow 5% additional modulation (to 105%) for all subcarriers. Had an Omnia One install at a classical music station. Put it in, rough set-up using the VU on the exciter--then went for an external antenna when my mod moni...

PC based multi-band processor

Have a low power station presently using my ancient Optimod 8100. Looking for recommendations for a PC based audio processor. I have an Omnia stereo generator from another project I can use to feed the STL, so just need the stereo processed signal out of the computer. Not looking to spend too much o...

Re: FM Radio Broadcasting Data System

Most likely weak signal--or possibly you are in an area with a lot of multipath (reflections off buildings/hills). What are you listening on? If you get a display on your car radio on the other two stations, either the signal is just too weak or they have the RDS subcarrier turned off. You can alway...
