Cool Artisan! I want to run episodes of suspense theater every night at 10PM with 2 half hour episodes till 11pm but still trying to find out how to get Play It Live to do it all automated at that time a and pick two at random from that group and go back to regular “programing” after the two play.
Anyways right now at 2:37 PM April 29 “We Belong…[Read more]
Yes there is always a way!
As for the interesting story of Ken Cartwright he had to be aware of part 15-219.
I feel for him though and although there is no field strength if you have a signal that is extraordinary it leads them to look closer to see what else they can find.
Tim has his 30 ft up on the side of the house, no ground and gets a mile…[Read more]
I wonder myself, if the whole point of the ferrite choke is for is lightning arrester or to stop a direct hit to the antenna and fry the transmitter, which would be installed along the ground line in between the transmitter and the ground I can’t see how this would prevent a lightning strike. A million volts or more I would think doesn’t care…[Read more]
As you know Procaster is located right here in Toronto and when I got my Procaster I just arranged to go and pick it up in person and a little while ago I purchased the other MP3 studio interface that works the same with the processing but has the addition of playing messages using USB drive but I liked it because the connector for the audio and…[Read more]
To use it indoors when I got mine I didn’t get the stock antenna. I just made a wire antenna with an alligator clip at one end and clipped it on to the antenna bolt. I found that different shapes with the wire affected the tuning for better and worse and got the best configuration. Also did the in the case “ground” as I showed here…[Read more]
I keep up on what happens in the US and I know of all the translators.
Strange about your Procaster. You aren’t in a house with metal siding? I posted my range I’m sure you’ve seen with mine from indoors with a wire in a basement! I also posted the little in the cabinet ground I devised here not to long ago. In the same room with the transmitter…[Read more]
I have never used this one so I can comment personally but just on being a little knowledgeable on all these transmitters as I take an interest and do some research on them and I’m aware of all that are out there, I can say that the Talking House used indoors with the wire will not be near as good as the Procaster indoors with a wire or using it…[Read more]
Mark started the topic Fix for overloading radio on AM in the same room as the transmitter in the forum General Discussion 1 month, 3 weeks ago
Anyone using AM transmitters indoors as I am and finding your radio audio overloaded(distorted and breaking up) when listening to your station in the same room as your transmitter, here’s a fix.
Usually newer DSP radios don’t have this problem but some, not all, others may have this problem.
For the technically inclined….usually the AGC that…[Read more]
From Carl’s blog on this topic he was really asking, as it was misunderstood, and he cleared it up as to what the real question is.
Carl asked “I was looking for a comparison between the lengths of wire to reach resonance. For example, if the long-wire approach was 100′ long, then how long would the wire for the loop version be? I still have no…[Read more]
From Carl Blare’s blog I thought may get some discussion here….
Is there a relationship between a wire cut to wavelength and a length of wire wound on a loop antenna to reach resonance?
I think yes as the end result is common to both methods.
Any other ideas?
I can only approve posts I get for approval. I am sorry you are having this trouble. It is beyond my control.
Also just because forum members have visited here in the last hour, day, two days, etc., that doesn’t mean they posted.
I think it’s, as I said before something at admin’s end. The forum was off for a couple of days a little while ago.
I know what you are saying. I just went off on an explanation as to my location not being the good choice for FM due to no space, which is a problem in and around major cities. Especially when there’s stations from other cities from everywhere around.
Even 1/4 of a mile is not bad. You may have done better than that with the internal artificial ground I posted with the Procaster as the Rangmaster is similar in design.
That’s 1320 feet/402 meters you still got. You can’t do any worse than that.
The Decade adjusted to exactly with a meter to BETS specs I would question whether you would get that…[Read more]
Here’s what you have to get to get 1uV sensitivity on FM(mono) and really one of the few companies that still make tuners. It’s as good as you will get on FM and equaled in some cars. The specs are shown in the manual.
Other than that you have to go to…[Read more]
Mark replied to the topic MY COVERAGE IN THE DAYTIME ON A SONY ICF-38 WITH A PROCASTER ON 1630 in the forum General Discussion 3 months, 2 weeks ago
Yes outside. The car I have now, a Kia Forte, isn’t as good as my Chev. Cobalt was with a fender antenna and no computer screen and other electronics. With the Kia weaker stations that should be clear and perfectly listenable like in the Chevy are obliterated by the electronics of the screen and other things. It’s like a hum that wipes out the…[Read more]

Here’s my *useful* reception range including the fringe areas with a Sony ICF-38. Daytime only. My house is marked. Nighttime is reduced to just my block. Or less. Also included a picture of this readily available radio….one of the last better than average portables made. I have a few of these.
What auction site was this? Is “that” auction site the one most popular that starts with E? Or the other one that also starts with E or the one that starts with F or K?
I don’t see the harm in naming a buy and sell or auction site where you got something.
