As another in the commercial broadcast industry, I can confirm all content sent to our full powers arrives in MP3. Almost always 128kbps 44.1 khz, however due to compatibility issues we tend to convert most of it to WAV. This has no impact on audio quality, the losses from mp3 are aleady there but WAV atleast wont make it any worse. Our playback…[Read more]
The selector won’t shuffle until the entire playlist has been run though, when it reaches the end it will automatically shuffle. The shuffle feature functions better than “random” in not allowing duplicates to be played.
0dB is louder than -15, typically leave that setting to default. If it doesn’t seem to be working edge it up a db or two and…[Read more]
Updated the map for Legacy, I saw he was actually already on the map but at his old 1700 frequency.
I mark part 15 stations as [DEFUNCT] when they sign off to maintain a record of their existence but I only know if I’m told or happen to run a search on it.
There are plenty of 100kW mom and pops. 100kW doesn’t mean a 100kW bill, as far as I know nobody runs a 100kW transmitter. More often than not the 100kW ERP is made up with antenna bays and height with stations running as low as 25kW. There are several Class C mom and pop stations in my area, some are C3 and C2. We happen to have a C2 with a…[Read more]
I do agree at even 7 watts hum could be an issue with the antenna in thet close proximity.
That said, we used this same exact unit for football broadcasts that were too far out of town for the main signal to reach. It would cover the stadium and not much more, hum was sometimes an issue if the audio cables weren’t placed right. The track pad on…[Read more]
I had been referring to the comments on the kid’s camp, I apologize if my comment was misunderstood.
Otherwise I try not to comment on others technical abilities as many of us are not experts and are supposed to be learning from one another.
That does look a lot like the 7 watt CZE, looks like that was either a remote broadcast or before they added a 25 watter.
And no, the telescoping antenna would not damage that transmitter nor would the RF destroy that computer but the range likely was not good. Additionally those speakers might not cause the feedback you’d think they would,…[Read more]
