Re: KRIS-TV tower collapse

Also on this tower were
Educational Media Foundation's KPLV 88.7 FM
Diocesan Telecomm's KLUX 89.5 FM
Quality Broadcasting's KFTX 97.5 FM

None of those FMs had any licensed auxes.

Re: WCBS/880 no longer HD-AM

I've heard thru the grapevine that CBS is finally throwing in the towel on AM-HD. Other CBS stations have dropped the HD already so this is no surprise. Well seeing that it's owned by Entercom, what you heard would be one hell of a wild tale. However, I remember reading somewhere that Entercom was ...

Re: Replace Car Radio Antenna?

My Jeep has one of those smaller antennas but it receives very well. I haven't had any less than stellar performance with it.

Re: RX1290 decoder failure

About half of our RX1290's seem to have decoding issues. On RF , IP or ASI does not mather. They just start to output rubish, no errors seen on the decoder interface. It started a year ago and now about 5 decoders have the same issue... Anyone who knows what causes this ? Two questions for you. Wha...

The Phoenix connectors. Why the EasyCrap box can't use XLRs is one of the most annoying features of that box.

Re: ADC Punch Block Tool

I took the patch bays out at the college radio station I work at last year as well. A) I can't find where the actual patch cables are, and B) I'd be the only one there who would ever use them, but I didn't need them. One less point of failure in the chain is fine by me.

Re: ADC Punch Block Tool

Thanks for all the replies. There seem to be some differences between the Mark II and the Mark IV patch panels. I could not find a consistent relationship between the "Krone" system and the ADC blocks... some people said the same and others gave an indication that they would be different....

Re: Looking for help in the Florida panhandle

Update. I have been back and forth with Dario from Nicom and he says the unit is bad... "The modulation is peaked out. The unit needs to come in for service the audio section of the motherboard needs rebuilt." We will be sending the unit out on Monday and either getting it replaced or rep...

Re: Looking for help in the Florida panhandle

Mark (DeepThought) is much smarter than me, so he's probably leading you in a better direction than I am.

According to Nicom, the amber LED is normal operation.
