Interesting read on the postings in this thread.
What I’ve found in the past 40+ years of involvement in Part 15 radio is that some stations are what we call “one man band” operations where one individual does it all and it works fine for them. Other Part 15 stations have a staff of volunteers who work in tandem with the owner of the station…[Read more]
I’m the chief engineer at the local Community FM station and believe it or not that’s what we use to get the signal to our transmitting facilities 6 miles away. Not too dependable but its all they can afford at this time.

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.

It’s not the end of the world if they show up on your doorstep; cooperate with them and most of the time that’s where it ends. I always say learn from your m…[Read more]
While I’d prefer to sell them as twins I’m not married to the concept. If you wanted a copy of the service manual you’d have to pay for the copy costs as well. Due to the excellent technical and cosmetic condition of the units, fair market value is $1,200 per unit; however if the lucky person buys both, I’m willing to come down to $2,000 for t…[Read more]
I’ve got two (2) Ampex 351’s (that’s right, the tube models) that I’m looking to sell. They are both monural units, full track, in mint condition (they have been well maintained and are cosmetically in very good condition as well) and were working when removed from service (6/09). They come in custom built wood table racks, the owners manual a…[Read more]
