Broadcast Tools SS8.2 WideOrbit fun

So as I found following a long epic battle with the dumb thing, the dip switch settings in the manual make no sense.

This is contrary to what is in the manual.

The instruction is making me freaking die of laughter. TOQUE EL POLLO!
Toque translates to play, as in a musical instrument, or touch. I prefer the former. PLAY THE RUBBER CHICKEN!!!

Cat-like broadcasting detected.

This is why today the engineer melted from excessive cute.

….. And then Logan got this boop action and that was it, they had to wheel me out of there in the tank of a shop vac.

You have no idea how dangerous it is to be a broadcast engineer, do you?
