About MCR: we’re going to be moving to 5 air tx’s and 3 or 4 CC tx’s very soon. We found a low cost source for STL systems (WAY cheaper than the original) – about 85.00 (includes shipping) – plus you need antennas for the links.. and let me tell you.. they know they have a monopoly, so they are pricey (24-35 for the recieve, and 129 for the tx).
About Ganging TX’s: Experience shows that putting multiple tx’s in one spot wont get you anywhere. I didn’t see any difference at all in having 4 tx’s in one spot or one.
Linking: This is great (*if* you are lucky and live in a place that wants you there 😉 ). It’s apparent that some areas shun part 15.. I still dont understand that, and hope I never do. As soon as I get more info on the new STL system – I’ll post it here or on the tech lib or somewhere handy.
General: I am very lucky. My town really likes the station. I also get involved in the community (I hand flags out to be placed all over town, I help the scouts on thier car washes, I help local businesses get thier stores setup – actually ripping out carpet, puttying the floors down – that sort of thing) .. the real key to a successful community radio station is to be in touch with your community 🙂 It’s taken a year for me to get there..
