I finally made my next video and it will probably go up next week.

Would you believe that all these antennas on our roof at the radio station are for receiving only?

Update: it was the rona. Glad I’m vaxxed and boosted, and my doctor is such a rock star she helped me have Paxlovid in hand 90 minutes later.

Working in the field tomorrow. I’ll be installing these MikroTik hEX devices at transmitter sites to serve as an alternate IP path for our studio-transmitter links! I had to kludge together an EoIP tunnel within a WireGuard tunnel back to a CHR I stood up in the cloud so I won’t have to change TCP/IP settings on our Intraplex transports. Sounds like a lot of overhead, but it’s just a few 384kbps Opus streams.

Built a new fire ring today. It looks a lot better than the rusty one we had before that was falling apart.

I’m at NAB Show this week and this is the coolest haul ever. Not many people in their 30s can say they’ve done work on a tube-based FM transmitter, but cha boi actually enjoys the challenge!
