Every tenth TWiRT show is devoted to “War Stories” – tales from the trenches of broadcast engineering. Our guest, Mark Mueller, tells us about working with AM Directional transmission systems, and describes some of the things that go wrong. Chris Tarr and Chris Tobin have their own experiences to share, too.
You may know of Mark Mueller’s work from his famous (among radio engineers) T2535SA Subaudible Tone Decoder. It’s the one product that actually worked well under a variety of program and tone levels to help automate syndicated radio programs before digitally-fired closures came along. The manual and schematic diagram of the T2535A is here.
Chris Tarr, Chris Tobin, and Kirk Harnack are your hosts.
