Artisan Radio; to answer your question, the station is a part 15/internet based operation. As you can see in the pictures, we use a lot of old radio equipment which works well for us.
The station is located in the lower level of my house; I decided to build it there as opposed to a small barn on my property for ease of use and keeps me out of…[Read more]
Carl, thanks for your kind words; I’ll speak to our webmaster and see about posting a pic of the transmitter/Antenna and crew (two people). (I’m assuming you mean the local community FM I’m the chief at and not the part 15 I run?)
Glad you enjoyed the website; it’s the result of a lot of hard work on the part of the staff.
Artisan Radio, you are correct; sometimes finding volunteers who’ll commit themselves to an operation can be a very challenging task to say the least. I’m fortunate in that many of the volunteers come from a radio background and they have a love of the craft.

While It’s over kill, my back up audio chain consists of audio from the DA feeds an CBS Audimax, which in turn feeds a Harris MSP-90 Tri-band which then feeds a Harris MSP-90 AM Limiter and finally to the output switch which is pushed in the event that the backup chain is needed. Here is a photo attached of it;
A cheap and easy way to do this would be to build a bridging circuit and from that get a pair of 1000 ohm resistors (one for each leg coming off of the bridging circuit and then merge both left and right channels. It’s a clean way to get a stereo circuit summed properly.
