The RF Workbench / Re: dumb soldering question of the day
« on: June 25, 2020, 2224 UTC »
I've been using a Weller WTCPN as my go to for the last 40 Years..  Oh Wow.. I'm getting old.. never had any issue soldering anything.. I also have two PACE MBT Rework Stations for desoldering and hot work they have a 35 watt iron as well.

Surprisingly, I do better with certain British female voices vs. American ones.

Me too Especially when it's Elizabeth Hurley.    And I'm not a Real Person just an incredible simulation..  8)

It would be so fun to be able to pirate 24/7 and maybe even have commercials to make money

There are many pirates on FM in the US that do operate 24/7 and sell commercials to local businesses at a much lower rate than Licensed stations.  The ones that run a tight ship have operated for years Until there were enough complaints from Licenced Broadcasters to send in the Marshalls to take their equipment and take them off the air.  Others get the Knock much sooner if they run Splatter Boxes.

Interesting failure analysis.. Nicely done..   But.. the design is basically a hobbyist kit and well... you know how that can go...   Now that you know the shortfalls I'm sure you can fix it yourself and improve the basic design and share your findings with other who also bought this Tx so they can also benefit from it.   Now if you want Broadcast Quality... I know a guy..

caveat emptor

I use two different Outros   Pink Floyd Marooned also an Air check  and a Synth Outro..  I have changed them over the years.. I have used the same interval signal now for 6+ years  Elton Johns Bitter Fingers just the intro repeated  and I always close with the National Anthem.
