Macs aren’t as susceptible to viruses as I understand as the creators of all this computer destroying junk is done to infect windows as that is the vast majority of computers. No fun in just infecting a few people. It’s computer terrorism!
The other operating system Linux is the same.

Firefox always warns me if a web site isn’t safe.
I have AVG pay version that was $19.95 a year and it protects against everything….not just basic stuff but hackers, privacy, and payments.
If AVG zapped something a notice comes on letting me know.
I will look into this ad blocker.
But my broadcast computer will never be connected to the…[Read more]
That’s great! I have Firefox and it’s annoying when a small window pops up an ad starts playing and I have to mute the sound to stop it. Why do I have to have sound from ads forced on me?
The others should do this too.
But my broadcast computer is not connected to the internet so on that nothing can pop up or those update messages can’t…[Read more]
BillyBurg said :” It will likely persist for awhile. There has been no active development on the free Zara software, while the OSs it runs on have been rewritten a number of times. And since Zara depends on the Windows Media Player for the playback engine, it can only get crazier.”
I’m still a newer Zara user and have windows 10 and find that the…[Read more]
I think if I remember from a site that I can’t now remember where, you may be able to have it work in mono by removing the crystal(silver component with a frequency engraved on the side). MAY be able to but not sure. I have the Decade that I use here in Canada and it’s mono switchable and that is where it stays all the time. The EDM has a add on…[Read more]

This is also about the best any legal part 15 FM transmitter can do. If you want to achieve any legal range with part 15 then you have to go with broadcasting on AM.
Note that out of the box the Ccrane is at half the field strength(even less) that’s allowed in the USA so 35 to 75 feet is not the max you can get legally.
No power in cold like this can be just as bad as another disaster like a hurricane or earthquake or whatever when it comes to survival. What back up plan could you have if you don’t have a gas or wood fireplace. How long was the power out for?
By the weekend it should be back to more livable conditions.
But one thing good about the cold is that…[Read more]
That cost Of 11 cents would be typical in most states give or take 10% I assume.
The Decade is operating at Canadian BETS-1 which is significantly more than FM is allowed in the USA and it covers the house and the surrounding neighborhood fine with a good receiver. Artisan and I are “Decade men” because it is BETS-1 certified…[Read more]
Mark replied to the topic Ground-mounted vs. Elevated MW Monopole Antennas: Which Configuration Is Better? in the forum Antennas 3 weeks, 1 day ago
Artisan said “Carl states it best. The assumption that all other things are equal between a Part 15 installation and a licensed station is not correct. Otherwise, numerous Part 15 stations would not see the results they are seeing when elevating antennas (and with all other things being equal WITH THE TWO PART 15 TRANSMITTER installations)”
Wow, that’s bad. You don’t get the initial cease and desist NOUO anymore?
That kind of a fine for being a little over! Who’s got that kind of money?
That’s way too much! with no NOUO.
But it hasn’t passed yet.
@ AM radiolegend…
Based on the cost of electricity in Toronto……13 cents a KWH in prime time 7 to 11 AM weekdays and 5 to 7 PM weekdays and all the rest of the time 10 cents from 11AM to 5 PM weekdays and 8 cents a KWH all other times. And it runs non-stop.
Measured the current drain of the transmitter, compressor and computer with screen…[Read more]
This a test! Trying to upload a picture of my station set up to see if it works as it didn’t before. Looks like it worked this time.
Computer is an 11 inch laptop with Zara, a headphone amp with EQ, a compressor and the Decade MS-100 and running 24/7 uses about $8 to $9 a month in electricity.
