cliffyk, Your explanation of how digital is being implemented on the FM band is different than how I imagined. Apparently the digital signals on AM is different as the bandwidth is 10 kc. I am familiar with some other digital broadcast where the carrier width on frequency is from between 1.8 and 2.3...

I don't think HD radio is going to take off yet. Many people don't want to go out to buy a new radio just to get the digital channels. Even then the quality isn't all that great from what I've heard. However your question was about whether anyone was using the HD radio equipment, and given the high...

Anyone Def Yet?"

Def as in broadcasting in HD or high definition (aka digital)? I would really like to know about switching over to HD and what additional equipment would be necessary? BTW, we have several local "HD" commercial stations already.

There are some passive (transformer) bal/unbal audio converters available at radio shack, but not cheap. Good point, using balanced inputs had slipped my mind as hadn't been doing that while using my laptop... Yes, I have balanced inputs on the transmitter and I think I have balanced inputs on the ...

jbprptco, To be honest that post was made last year, and I have been very busy since then. I don't remember which antenna I was talking about at the time. I think I was probably thinking about Verical Loops with a coil to reduce the size or EH antennas. Be sure to take a look at those antenna types ...

As for antennas, most standard broadcast stations use a multi bay Circular polarized setup. I will warn you, they are very expensive. Do a google search on bkg77-hp and you will find one such antenna. There are many other models out there as well. Be sure to get an antennas that is rated for atleast...

Gamevision

87.8 Mhz is the lower end of the FM band here in the states, however, the FM audio for TV channel 6 is centered 87.75 (if I remember correctly). If you have a channel 6 OTA or on Cable in your area you will interfere.

RDS and Windows Media player

Since I use Windows Media player (really don't like WinAmp), I wonder, are there any RDS units out there that work for me?

Look at that regulator 7812. We usually take if from tap 3 of that regulator. Other than the power, I am ready to go. I don't have a picture showing where the 7812 regulator is and I don't see it on the PC board.. More info on the location of the 7812 regulator please? A-man PS. I haven't done much...

Ok, a couple of questions....
