Dan Feely, Chief Engineer of Mount Wilson FM’s Global Jazz, shared some techniques in building translator racks that I thought you’d like to consider. First, Dan builds them all the same.

We sit down with Brian Cunningham, chief engineer of Crawford's Rochester and Buffalo markets, to learn about how Omnia has defined Crawford's sound since the beginning.
When it comes to getting listeners to tune in all day long, great sound is what matters most. But with technology moving at breakneck speed, hardware can become outdated quickly, with many manufacturers requiring you to purchase a whole new processor once technology is improved, quickly rendering their own products obsolete. Omnia engineers are always looking for ways to supercharge their processors with improvements and features that benefit all users. Instead of making customers buy a whole new processor, Omnia offers free and low-cost software upgrades, actually making customers’ machines better over time, paying dividends on customers’ investment in Omnia processors.

Then put the Omnia.11 G-Force on-air, listen to those candidate presets on your “trusted” radios, and decide on one to start with.Read More

When the offer to buy the station was extended, Patrick didn’t have to think it over for too long.Read More
