Here’s what they are using…….
Definitely not Part 15!
Sorry legacy! You had your hopes up for a second there.
Mark replied to the topic 87.5 Mhz at Football Stadium Legal? I thought otherwise in the forum Transmitter Talk 3 hours, 18 minutes ago
Seems as I thought, maybe, and I say maybe, there may be some permit that can be had similar to Canada’s RSS-123 for special “events” and they got a permit to have this certain frequency and special receivers as allowed. Seems also it wasn’t one transmitter but many spread around the stadium to get the coverage. Maybe Wikipedia made the mistake of…[Read more]
By the way here’s another chip you could use as it would cause less interference……….
The Gali- 74 which you will find on the internet also to replace the Gali-5
But get the 2.2uH coil also. An electronics store should have these that sell parts. Or get on ebay.
Another forum member posted that the GAL-5 is really the GALI-5 and yes they are on Ebay…..https://www.ebay.ca/itm/GALI-5-MMIC-MONOLITHIC-RF-AMPLIFIER-MINI-CIRCUITS/192916489557?hash=item2ceab80555:g:q14AAOSwh35c2p8O
WATCH THIS VIDEO!
This is your problem with the Ramsey transmitters.
Here he shows the GAL-5 problem and a replacement with a compatible part. The replacement is mentioned in the video….this should help.
The biggest problem with these is the GAL-5 output chip they use which blows with any static electricity on or off near the antenna. Usually when this happens it’s got no transmission of any kind except right near the circuit board. You say you still get 30 feet but I’m thinking it’s still the output gone. It would still be radiating a bit.
Unfortunately the “big three” transmitter makers in our hobby(Procaster, Rangemaster, Decade) will be gone sooner or later as they get older and retire, or close the business. and someone has to take their place or there will be no more high end transmitters of this kind in the future. Just a thought.

Honestly, I don’t think from even a high resolution picture you can accurately see the exact color codes on resisters, coils, etc and even capacitor values. You will mistake red from brown, violet from blue, etc., as an electronic recreation is not like your eyes.
How did you happen to get these that were screwed up this badly? I for one would…[Read more]
One thing about old 78s…..They were a lot more resistant to wear and were a very hard plastic. Had to be as they were played on gramophones and older record players that had tone arms that weighed half a pound with a steel needle. Had these as a kid yet the 78s lasted forever but if dropped they could shatter to pieces. The way he was cleaning…[Read more]

Mark replied to the topic I am Just About Done Adding Tracks To My Stations Main Playlist in the forum General Discussion 3 weeks, 3 days ago
I have about 3500 tracks roughly. Should highlight and look at the actual total again.
but about 600(roughly) of them are jingles, station id’s, Chickenman episodes, promos etc.
I’m trying not to keep adding as it has got to end somewhere! I really have enough now that each song that plays won’t be heard again for days sometimes. Play it does a…[Read more]
CFZM is clear channel. no other stations there to interfere directly…….
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
CFZM is a Canadian Class A clear-channel radio station, licensed in Toronto, Ontario, which airs at 740 kHz and in downtown Toronto at 96.7 FM. The station airs an oldies format branded as Zoomer Radio, with the slogan “Zoomer…[Read more]
I am using Play It which like Zara accesses your tracks from your computer and remembers your settings without a server. The silence detector never worked right with Zara and used the overlap to shorten the gap between songs, jingles, etc. but still couldn’t get it to be truly gapless.
Tried to download Radio DJ but got pissed off when it…[Read more]
Do you know that AM 740 (zoomer radio) from Toronto has the most coverage of any station in North America, not only covering all of Ontario from Windsor to Kingston and north to Parry Sound and North Bay, but 28 states also? That’s all of central North America! That’s in the daytime! And the format….OLDIES 40s to the 70s mostly with some 80s for…[Read more]
I have Firefox and the stream was good at this end. Sounded fine. Good format but not my cup of tea for longtime listening but that’s just me, not the format. Good mix and a good hobby station offering a real alternative to the same old mainstream stuff on commercial stations.
Was listening a bit on Sunday Sept 15/19 and the doo-wop shop was on. Liked that a lot.
Where did you get that program? Is it free or is there permission for part 15 stations to use on their stations?
Also since you said to inform you of any problems, seems after playing for a length of time the stream stops and I have to go back and via website…[Read more]
Why don’t you let your automated program do all this? I am using Play It and it eliminates any silence at the beginning and end of tracks so gapless smooth transition song to song, jingle to song etc. Zara for some reason never worked as good.
Can’t imagine you manually with 3000 tracks putting each song in a program and cutting off the end a…[Read more]
Got it! Updated adobe flash player and got it after a short wait for it to start. Maybe I didn’t wait long enough before.
A Beatles song was on at 7:45 followed by a Smokey Robinson and the Miracles song that cut in while the Beatles song was still playing. Then I came on. Sounded good. I will listen from time to time when I am on the computer.
Uninstalled that listen 2 my radio app as it replace my home page from Yahoo and wouldn’t go away. Even set my home page again but this new thing still persisted. I, for that reason don’t like to install things, as it always does something to screw me up. If the listen now doesn’t work at my end from your site I am not going to try to install…[Read more]
