Hurricane Help

Post by BroadcastDoc » Mon Aug 28, 2017 7:02 pm

We received a request from a member (who is also a very experienced Engineer) offering to volunteer his services for any station in need of emergency assistance that has been affected by the hurricane in Texas. I’m sure there may be others who are in a position to volunteer as well.

Please use this thread to ask for or to offer emergency assistance for labor, gear, etc. for any facility impacted by Harvey. There are people willing to help!

I have some equipment that could be used to borrow to get back on the air on a temporary basis.

Crown 500 watt transmitter, Single Bay Rototiller ERI antenna , A couple of Shively single bays. (One low ass end of band, one mid band)

May also have a QEI at my disposal as needed too.

Outdoor NEMA enclosure.
