Phil that is really good news! I have not had a Sstran around here for sometime. All of ours were given new homes to get some stations off the ground.
The new antenna would be a perfect companion for the Sstran. Preliminary test using a signal generator shows outstanding performance, now we need to test it with a transmitter for our final test and review.
The combination of the new antenna and a Sstran may provide the most bang for the buck, for those who don’t need a certified transmitter, but still want decent coverage.
I will have to work a Sstran into the budget at the beginning of the year to finalize the test.
The meltdown could be good for part 15 AM XMTR sales, just based on the 10 fold increase in traffic coming to our part 15 AM site in the last week. Allot of radio people have been shown the door in recent months, Part 15 broadcasting is a good way to keep the green backs coming in.
