Switched to 1500 from 1670 as radios sold before 1990 don’t get there. If I remember even the GE Super doesn’t have the expanded band. Only the Super radio 3 has the expanded band.
Mentioned that I wasn’t getting to the volume of the other stations with the line input so I tried to see what would happen with the MIC in jack…[Read more]
Reply to Neil..
Is the response of 20-17000 HZ the frequency response of the transmitter itself or what you are getting on the air? It’s the radio end of things that limits it as it has to fit in the narrower plus or minus 5 kHz allowed bandwidth, unless you have a GE super that has the wide feature.
Would like to find another one of these…[Read more]
Yes, I’ve joined the majority on these hobby radio forums and made the switch to AM!
OLDIESWMRK is now on 1670(subject to change) in Toronto Canada. Realize that older radios won’t get up to 1670 but this was the quietest nighttime spot.
Recently purchased a Talking Sign(predecessor of the Procaster) from a forum member in like new condition,…[Read more]

I agree the radio is a big factor. AM or FM. The GE super or Ccrane EP Pro or Sangean’s better models will do a hell of a lot better than the average boom box junk will.
Yes with AM you are not limited by field strength as Tim said but still a radio designed for long range reception(more selective and sensitive) will do much better with the set…[Read more]
For all of us “oldies” a sad day for rock and roll.
I doubt it too as only by governments forcing change will change happen as people don’t care. The carbon tax is not near enough. People sit idling their cars for hours on streets and parking lots with their phones and city bylaws on idling doesn’t work if not actively enforced. Gas is too cheap and if it was a lot more expensive than it is and it…[Read more]
Sorry to hear about killing the CM-10 with a static charge. All these can be protected by adding a 2.2uH coil across the antenna to ground. I mentioned this to thelegacy for his Broadcastvision. The MS-100 has this and the LX-75 would have this too no doubt.
If the one you have(Broadcastvision) is working fine discharge you static before you…[Read more]
I was talking to Michael at Decade and this was before I saw the notice on site about the discontinued LX75. The reason the others are out of stock is because of covid 19 the company that makes the cabinets for him stopped production for a while and he has lots of orders waiting to be shipped. I was inquiring about the status of the company and I…[Read more]

If you look closely you will also see that one output transistor is removed and bypassed with a jumper.
The antenna BNC connection was switched for the attached antenna.
Even if it is not up to BETS-1 max it can be certified still if under max allowed.
Decade told me way back when that to meet max part 15 or BETS-1 a resistor was changed…[Read more]

You station should sound good with this.
See if you can fix that speaker!
Depends how large the parking lot is. Car radios are very sensitive and if the parking lot is not too large a part 15 legal transmitter should be able to do it. Possible transmitters that are legal….FM….Wholehouse 3, Broadcastvision, would be the two that would have the most coverage and certified legal. AM, without spending a lot a…[Read more]

The houses are close together on this street. Lots of houses on the block.
in the main circle the distance between the two streets on the block where my house is is 660 ft. so I am getting out 300 to 400 ft each way except for that dip to the south. The small circle on the right is the top floors of a retirement home.
This is with a receiver like…[Read more]
