4CX20000D

It seems to me that I've heard less than complimentary things about Econco's rebuilding lately? Is that so? I have one of these tubes that needs a rebuild. Are there any other decent rebuilders out there?

Pilot adjust on 8200 digital output

It's easy to adjust the pilot injection on the standard composite output of an 8200... but how do you adjust the injection when you use the digital out?

Re: ND5 issues

Great! I think the old lock (a Wal-Mart cheapie) is gone, but I'll email you the new combo. I sent a message to your web page.

Apparently there was a vicious lightning strike (to the point of starting a fire) to one of the businesses up the hill. So there could be power supply damage.

Re: ND5 issues

That's the one! I won't be in the 'Burg until 10/11. I'll be driving up on 10/10, so I can't provide any readings. I hope the test sheet is still there...

I've worked on older and newer Nautels, but this one has behaved while I've been around it.

ND5 issues

Never had to work on/troubleshoot this particular Nautel beast. I'm pretty sure that it has bad RF modules and I think there's a way to test them through the front vent holes. Anyone able to offer a little ND5 insight?

Thanks.

Anyone have any documentation on this beast? I have one with a blank display.

SX1 and MW1

I am trying to help a guy who has the luck of engineering an AM station with one each of the above. The MW-1 is making 440 watts, but it at least works fine at that power. But... the main transmitter is an SX1. The first attempts to start it showed much arcage at the HV contactor. I burnished the re...

Anyone using other than Optimod or Omnia

There seem to be several interesting boxes out there aside from the big two. Any comments, positive or negative?

Re: Texar Audio Prisms

ChuckG has the proper setup lineup.

Amazing how many of those Texar (and probably Optimod 8000) covers just vanished over the years. The ones on mine were gone when I got 'em, sadly.
