Broadcasting began this morning at the usual time, with a large thunderstorm moving closer.
At 45-minutes into the program day a very loud bang shook the windows and a static pop registered on both AM radios. At this time AM 1680 switched to all static, and I had visions of returning the AMT5000 to sstran.com for repair.
But upon closer examination the AMT5000 was o.k. and still on the air, but the FM Studio-Transmitter-Link was interupted, from the Wholehouse 2.0.
Checking the Wholehouse we found that it was dead, no signal, no power. Darn. And we don’t have a backup.
But guess what? The power pack for the Wholehouse had dropped from the extension cord it had been hanging from, and fallen to the floor. It must have been scared by the bang.
We were able to resume normal operation and the program day is moving ahead.
