Re: Rescan WEYI 25

Statman... Thank you for this info! I had looked into some of this as well, since the repacked stations did file for STA as well as CPs for their new allotments. Reading over some technical info submitted by WNEM, it looks like they were going to temporarily run on a side-mounted HPOL antenna, while...

Re: Rescan WEYI 25

How is everyone's signal after the repack? The stations that had to flip (5, 25, 46, 49 (though don't really care about 49)) all have far less signal strength/quality than before, despite power increases. Power increases had to occur due to the final repack stage to be a polarization switch to elipt...

Re: SCREW YOU! I’M KEEPING YOU SAFE!!!

Last night I was watching coverage from Kansas City from their local CBS affiliate. Good stuff! You might be the only one. He's not. I do t...

Do they still make XAP? I've only used the WA plug in. IIRC, the XAP wasn't free but the plug-in was?
I'm don't believe it is still in Development. IIRC, the developer now designs processors for a broadcast brand.

I will PM you a link.

Re: Free radio automation software

You don't need to be an SQL expert, and using MySQL is completely free. I run 3 instances of RadioDJ; two instances connected to one database, and another instance connected to a different database on the same database server (wife's playlist).

Thanks. Looks like this is meant to be a vertical antenna. Have you ever tried it horizontal?

Re: Looking for antenna advice

This... http://bobbyromeo.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/stealth_hawk-300x242.png I've built many home-brew antennas in the past for DTV; and this one (for me) has been the easiest and most effective.
