A selection of FMs from low power college to 50kw Class B. AMs from kilowatt non-directional to 25kw directionals. Several business computer and networking clients (non-broadcast). Everything from mic to tower. Computer and IT work. Satellite and automation. Industrial RF fabric welder repair and maintenance.
I have been advising my clients to focus on streaming rather than HD Radio at this time. The penetration of HD Receivers is so low in this area as to be non-existent. If and when HD does take off, an HD2 channel can simply be fed by one of the existing stream sources. The HD2 stations around here really have under-developed content for the most part.
That client is also using the internet to get live remote content back to the studio. We've used Windows Media Encoder. a relay server, and Windows Media Player 9 and 10. It works, but we're looking at a more elegant way. The Tieline boxes are under consideration, if the budget will allow it.
Other projects include installation of a new Axia digital on-air console. Main on-air studio and news/production studios installed.
Recently a Nautel Jazz 1000 at another client was damaged by a lightning strike. The problem was from a mis-routed ground wire touching a couple of silver mica capacitors under the VSWR board. The transmitter was sent back to Nautel for repair, but mostly upgrades. I re-routed the wire when it came back to prevent a recurrance. Thanks go to Nautel for quick turnaround.
