Surprisingly enough, there are a lot of commercial stations running on less than modern equipment. While I doubt there are many Gates Yard consoles running today (if any), there’s sure to be a lot of old consoles and transmitters still cranking out a good signal. Which brings me to the topic.
A lot of today’s lesser expensive equipment is better than a lot of yesteryear’s ‘pro’ equipment. So one can start a station on a very modest budget and sound as good or better than the pros. And today’s automation programs beat the stuffings out of yesterday’s automation systems. The standard version of DRS2006 has more functionality than a roomful of older automation and is almost nothing in cost!
