No, not that Death Star, this one:
Because Hey! It’s digital, therefore it must be better!
I found this faulted HD Radio exciter on my weekly site visit for WFAS-FM. I have no idea how long it was in the fault condition. The radio station received zero calls about the HD Radio being off. When I looked at the fault log, it stated that it was unable to ping something or another. However, the reason for the exciter shutting down was… wait for it… the fault log was full.
I rebooted the unit, it came up without problems and there appears to be no lingering communications issues.
At least these things weren’t terribly expensive… Oh no, wait, they were.
Well, at least people are getting enjoyment from their wonderful sounding digital radio, except, no: People don’t seem to know about it, or care.
So, the radio stations must be making tons of money on this thing, right? What? No?
I am confused, why are we doing this again?
