WDST is a well-known radio station in Woodstock, NY. Formatically, I would call it Adult Album Alternative (AAA) and it is one of my favorite stations to listen to. We also do the engineering work for this station. While I was there last week, I snapped a few pictures of the studios:
All of the studio use Audioarts R-60 consoles, which are in good condition considering their age. Lots of guest microphones and the windows look out into a performance venue.
The music library is extensive.
The production room, another R-60 console. I don’t know where the microphone disappeared to, perhaps it was borrowed by the morning show.
Technical Operation Center (TOC). WDST uses NextGen from RCS for music storage, playback and automation. Other equipment includes ISDN, POTS phone, Distribution Amps, Limiters, streaming computer, STL, etc.
The transmitter site is on Hallihan hill, across the street from the old ATT long lines site. The station uses a Broadcast Electronics FM5C transmitter.
Forward power, almost five whole kilowatts of flame throwing power.
The antenna is a Shively 6810 2-bay half wave spaced.

Very nice, neat looking station. I appreciate you sharing it with us Paul!
Okay, you got me on this one… I see a composite STL, but no audio processor other than the Compellor and the Behringer under the ISDN gear.
Scratching my head… is it some form of software running on that small PC below the Moseley?
Kind of a mystery, isn’t it Nick?
How does the half-wave spacing coverage/plot/etc. differ from 3/4 or 1 wavelength spacing?
