As someone associated with a high school radio station, I second the need to get the students used to 'real world' setups. This will better prepare them to continue in the field and give them a leg up on their peers when they get into college, or even corporate, environments. We try to have similar ...
Something nobody mentioned in this thread - if you are hooking the web-based control to the internet, make sure you pick a good, strong, password and change it on an irregular basis (every 60 - 90 days, but not always at esxactly the same password age. More frequently depending on your paranoia leve...
If you can get a response from them. I have tried on several occasions to get some after sales service for my 691 monitor and they just don't reply. I always just call them. Never had an issue reaching them that way. Our monitor is an Inovonics 531, it is fed via a sample loop in our Qei transmitte...
There is nothing special about that supply and I suspect the primary design spec (other than the voltage and minimum current rating) was "cheap". Absolutely. If Bernie couldn't build it in his basement cheaper, he would contract it to the Italians or Chinese. Almost anything would be an upgrade fro...

How are you making out with this? I just realized I never posted back. We heard that a company here in PA, Lightner Electronics, had a good reputation for repairing these. Sent it off, about 2 weeks and $250 later it came back. Works great. It was, as I suspected, the modem chip. Tieline and their ...
...The state emergency management is bringing in a bunch of heavy DOT gear from NY, NJ and PA to help all the towns and cities which are dealing with the excessive snow levels...

I'm not so sure the issue is with VoIP itself, but rather a function of the ATA you are using for the analog lines. Not all are created equal :D I used a Grandstream already into a DH-20 without issue. My guess would be that the Telos is not drawing the current the Linksys wants to see, since the Li...

I am using Behringer USB sound interfaces for our streams. It is unbalanced in, but works better for us than the soundcard on the motherboard. I have 3 systems as part of my streaming setup - 2 encoders and one stream server. We do not have a lot of stream traffic, it is mainly when we do high schoo...
