if anyone is interested... i was the chief operator/engineer for WNLC-AM(1510)/ WTYD-FM(100.9)in the mid-80's. the morning man for 'TYD and was responsible for the format shift to Adult Contemporary from Beautiful Music; took alot of heat in the press for that one! i also worked the overnights on 'NLC (oldies) with little regard for format constraints and had the most listened to program in non-rated radio!! The first live remote broadcast 'TYD did from the mall in Waterford we did using the MARTI from the sister. Management wouldn't spring for a board op to fire the EOM since 'TYD was automated, so i rigged a "missle-fire" button using a PL generator from a 2-way radio set and tied it to the HARRIS automation to trigger the next event. KOOL!! (pun intended) i've got slides of the original construction of the antenna farm at Foster RD. including the FEMA bomb shelter and generator shed. y'know... in case of the russians :) dropping their regards :( we'll chat later... back then i went by Alan Paige...... pause for obvious reactions of recognition. Pushing the "envelope" was my contribution to AM radio engineering, that RCA-BTA5/10U would never modulate an AM envelope the same again.
