Unfortunately all I have is the 999 manual.

Re: Missing FM pilot

I don't believe that is covered in the rules anymore. As long as the occupied bandwidth doesn't exceed 75kHz, I wouldn't expect much concern by the FCC. Any particular reason why it's bothering you? It really does not bother me much other than it is not really correct. Kinda like a really messy cab...

Re: AM CQuam Stereo

well... the ship is still here but why no one is taking advantage of it... but with a more positive attitude... Nah, the ship is not here. There are no new radios capable of decoding C-QUAM (other than a few HD models) and there are very few existing radios in the field. If you have the stuff, grea...

Re: New HD signal, BE equipment

Here's an HD-2 (SPS1) running on BE's Importer. You can adjust the level via the "Audio Gain" slider, or the Linear Acoustics software.

And here's where you's adjust the HD1 (MPS) audio level:

Re: New HD signal, BE equipment

I found that parameter in the software, but when I experimented with it, I could not perceive a level change in the HD1 signal, I did not check to see if it had an effect on the HD2 signal. If I remember correctly, the range for this field is -10 to +10, and I tried it at several settings, includin...

Re: The Looming Engineering Age Crisis

I agree this is an excellent article. I'm a little mystified how it showed up in my Facebook feed, attached to a picture of the rack room at my office. I got into the engineering side about 30 years ago, mainly because I was burned out from doing air shifts, not that I was all that great of a "tale...

Re: BroadcastDoc

Almost immediately after getting here I installed new processing on all the stations (did the same in Madison). I'm kind of a stickler for the "quality" side of the "quality/loudness" tradeoff. Fortunately, the Program Directors that I work with have all been pleased with the results, so I've been a...

Re: BroadcastDoc

Wow! Thank you for the kind words!

I joined Entercom (Kiss and Mix) in 2003, and I'm still there. I added WMHX, WOLX, and WMMM in Madison in 2005. Let me know what you think when you get back to town!

Re: Tower rental rates

So, in a nutshell, the answer to my question is, the arrogance that other people aren't bright enough to interpret the data they might receive. Sort of figured that already. Nobody ever wants to talk about how much they pay for stuff for some reason that I've never understood. Possibly in this case...

Re: Interested in Ham Radio

If you want to get a "feel" for the exams, qrz.com has practice tests online. It's a good way to get an idea of what you're up against. The ARRL has study guides as well, and you can often find a copy at your local library.
