BABES/SBE LUNCHEON ON WEDNESDAY Jan 26TH
Our speaker is Jack Andresen of ETS. They make the baluns that permit using twisted pairs and cat 5 cable for much more than data. As usual, our luncheon will be at Sinbad's just south of the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero near the foot of Mission St.. Please RSVP to Carol Brahney at Zacks: 408-487-9302 (firstname.lastname@example.org). We meet at 11:30 and are seated at 12:30.
Many years ago, when Dane left the FCC monitoring truck to go with Hammett & Edison, he made a comment that the job change meant he had to get his fangs filed down.
Having reviewed his recertification packet in the past, I can tell you the article didn't begin to cover all the things he's involved in.
I hadn't looked into audio cassettes for a few years so I was surprised to find that handheld cassette recorders are virtually extinct. You can get all kinds of players but the recorders are real hard to find. It made me wonder what the news radio stations are doing for field recording these days. The handheld cassette was king. But then, I've been out of radio for 24 years.
I finally settled on a consumer minidisc recorder. The discs are much cheaper than DAT tapes. The quality is fine for speech. I haven't tried dubbing music onto one but that is what they're promoted for. Looking on the web, I see that there are professional decks and editors but I haven't heard much about how, or even if, they're being used in radio. A possible topic for future consideration.
KRON uses a Zenith exciter with computer correction. Using an HP vector signal analyzer, a sample of the output of the mask filter is used to generate the correction information which is then stored in the modulator memory. No screwdrivers required.
