When using an FM transmitter/receiver combination with the stereo generator turned on, and with some of them you can’t turn it off,
the 19kHz pilot frequency will modulate your AM carrier out too far on both sides and put whistles two spaces on either side of main.
It’s happening now with my C.Crane being used as a STL.
The Technics tuner mentioned by MICRO1700 has a filtered output for recording which attenuates the pilot tone so it will not interfere with tape bias, and this is also good for AM radio feed.
I printed out the schematic for the C.Crane and was going to figure out a way to kill the stereo pilot, but the way it is drawn it is hard to figure out which overlapping lines connect and which are just crossing each other, because the teensy dots signifying a connection are smeared and hard to verify.
The Ramsey 25B allows turning off the stereo, as does the Wholehouse 2.0.
