Your last tube? Economic, Maintenance and Migration Considerations for Older Tube Transmitters

Solid-state transmitters today tend to have efficiency specifications that are significantly higher than comparable tube transmitters. Jeff Welton with guests Coy Sawyer (WCLQ General Manager) and Alex Hartman (WCLQ’s Contract Engineer) explore a case study of radio station WCLQ that migrated from tube to solid state. They discuss power savings, maintenance and related operational costs, on-air confidence levels, and tools to help stations decide if getting rid of tubes makes fiscal sense in their situation.
