We are currently installing this sweet little transmitter:
Like its big brother, the NV-40 at WVPS, the NV-5 is a very cool transmitter. I am a born sceptic, things like a touch screen displays tend to make me a little nervous, especially on a transmitter connected to a 350 feet tall steel tower right next to the transmitter building. That is the one major difference between WVPS and this site; at Mount Mansfield there are many things between the transmitter and antenna, this place, not so much. Even so, Nautel makes a good product, so troubles are not expected.
The ground strap, AC power, remote control and composite audio connections were all made with out difficulty. Result, new transmitter on the air:
This unit is analog only, but the information on the spectral display is still useful. The GUI uses Linux with a touch screen, which is a neat feature.
In case the front panel GUI goes out, all transmitter controls can be accessed via push buttons on the remote control interface, which is the small board to the right. The main controller board is on the left.
