If you told me years ago this would be a significant part of my job, I’d have had a lot of trouble believing you.
This, incidentally, is what you get when there’s no maintenance budget. This transmitter is the only one in house and can’t be taken off air to replace some bad relays. A potential great deal on a backup transmitter that would have allowed me to do so was allowed to go by the wayside so here I am kicking this box to make it stop dumping half its output power in the system isolator load due to an IPA select relay fault.
The relays responsible for making me have to kick the transmitter.
<fnord> Yes, Miguel, rest assured those are leather pants. Would you expect any less? </fnord>
