Hi Guys: Issues i found today june 4, 2015
I went back out today on a drive test to see how the south and east was covered and notice a difference in range i even checked the good area again and notice about half its’ strength.
I got home checked to make suere automatic turner was working and it was, I tried different antennas to make sure it was tuning and it was.
Then i checked the power supply and found the output voltage was jumping up and down,I plug in it took about 5 min to get somewhat steady then at times the output voltage would go down then be fine for a bit then go back up again and keep repeating it self. I ran it for a half hour with a meter on the power supply with no load allready went from 18.00vdc to 19.70vdc .
I’m going to get another power supply and redo the range test.
I know the power supply for the talking house/iam radio tx are not a good unit i have taken them apart and they are a switching power supply and they don’t have good filters on them.
You where better off going to radio shack and get a power supply, They still have a store open on the other side of river here that i will check out what a friend told me.
Personally i would buy a new power supply before i run transmitter.
At least you have a clue what the tx range was doing even with something was going wrong.
