Great conversation. I won’t rehearse what has already been said, but in terms of new content, I’d love to see/hear about all the hundreds of Part 15 stations out there: A kind of self publicity profile. Like: Location, type of rig used, frequency, type of programming, unique initiatives followed, how the station adds to the listener’s…[Read more]
Hope all’s well on the radio front.
I was thinking, I suppose the Part 15 hobby is divided in to two general spheres; those that are in the hobby for the technical aspects, or those that are in it for the programming possibilities. Me, I’m definitely in the latter camp.
It’s with that in mind that I have a tongue in cheek idea here,…[Read more]
Thanks Mark. I’ve done a search and have applied to join some of those Part 15 fb pages you mention.
Anyone else out there interested, or know of someone in your circle of friends you might? Let me know.
Hope all’s well with WFH (working from home) these days. We’re still in lockdown here in Ireland, since 27 Dec 2020 with a review on 5th April 2021. Restricted to 5km radius of home with no visitors to one’s home.
All of that is by way of a background. A few friends and I have set up an online radio station, a follow on from a…[Read more]
@Mark, thank you for the explainer re: coax and wire. Seems basic to most int the hobby, but as my maths teacher used to say “there’s never a stupid question’, that’s why I asked. Can your clear answer cleared it up for me. Ill look forward to viewing that YouTube video too. Thank you for the link.
Thanks Mark. Forgot to say, I’m not in the USA, so your FCC restrictions don’t apply in this case.
You mention using a 3m wire for the mosquito. What type of wire would that be? Would 50 Ohm coax cable be considered as a ‘wire’?
Re: the loaded coil. Yep, did lots of internet searches and they all seem to relate to CB or Ham Radio. I’ve yet to se…[Read more]
Right here I go. I need advice. I have ‘six of one, and half dozen of another’ as the saying goes. I’ve lots of kit and facilities, but, to a novice like me, which seem to be mismatched.
I’ll lay out here the list of resources available to me. I want to get an AM rig on the air with a decent enough signal. I wonder if you’d be able to guide me…[Read more]
Once again, thank you so much for your considered thoughts on the issue. It is clear you are really trying to solve the problem, and that’s so difficult at such a remove.
If I may, I’d like to take the replies in turn.
Guys, Thank you very much for you considered replies. If I may, I’d like to take the suggestions in turn and offer a follow up.
@ArtisanRadio – You asked if I have gotten different results in different locations. I have used the TH with the internal setting (9ft) wire in various locations across my home city (suburban and inner city), and in…[Read more]
I have a Talking House V5. It is located on a high shelf in a shed – concrete slab walls with metal roof and wooden eaves. I drilled a whole through the wooden eaves, threaded the 3 metre wire and attached it to a bamboo pole. See image. I got limited coverage – 35 feet either direction maybe.
I bought one of the new range…[Read more]
Just bumping this thread. I found the weekly CDX Country Music News bulletin with Shannon McCombs. It is available free each Thursday to registered stations with CDX Nashville.
Tell her Pat from Total Country FM sent you. 🙂
Just wondering if anyone has come across a Country Music News bulletin which is available free to air of charge?
I have sourced a number of the programmes I air by searching various podcast platforms. I haven’t been able to find a Country Music News bulletin.
Id prefer a short (5 min for example) weekly bulletin I could schedule a c…[Read more]
