Any screen readers for the sister that can be loaded on a FHC computer? I have one blind Brother that I support on his computer for LDS Family Services. He uses a program called JAWS on that computer. The license he has for it lets him do so. So she may already have a screen reader she can use there.

The frequency usually used at a Church building is channel "A" which is 72.100 MHz according to Comtek. They are the company that the Church uses in my area (So. California) for the ALS radios. In our Stake center, the transmitter is a "high power" (120mw) unit. I can go all arou...

When I go to ldshams.com I just get their normal webpage. Must have been a short term condition.

Went through training today.

It's been an interesting day. We had training on our new audio/video system. I learned a few things, but already knew a lot of it. The consultant and I had a pretty good discussion about a few things though. Really a nice and intelligent man. One of the first vendors that I've met and felt at ease ...

I was told by the FM manager that I'm to make no adjustments or modifications to the existing system.

So that fixes that.

Good you have the Wegener manual. Page 15 shows how to get at the Eb/No and other stuff. To see Eb/No, press either button to bring up the main menu. (Don't do this during a broadcast, because it takes over the visual output to show the data.) I'll give this a try next time I'm over there. By the w...

Not only that, but if you have to buy a cable, phone cables are cheaper. I was thinking about this and probably the best way to go is going to be to use an extension cable for the phone as we have been discussing. This will allow a better quality signal into the microphone inputs in the chapel that...

At some point I think the high frequencies roll off, but keep in mind we're talking about audio from a phone line. Not exactly a wide frequency range. Also, you can choose to extend the telephone cable and keep the mic cable short. I think the ideal solution would be to have a telephone jack in or ...

Like most analog things, it just degrades with length. I don't think 100' is a problem. Found a site that says 200 feet is not uncommon for XLR and is considered a max limit. They also mention professionals running them the length of a football field with no problem (300 feet). I'll just plug one i...

As long as you have a telephone line, an EJ-10 "crab box" and a mic cable that will stretch to the closest mic input for the chapel, that's all you need. You don't have to have a connection on the satellite rack (although it would be nice!) I would need a 100 foot mic cable as the nearest...
