OK I am confused is it the "conversations station" "news talk florida" "gotta know now" or Tampa Bays AM 820 news"?
Depending on when and what you listen to or see online there is a bit of an identity crisis...........
"A 3DX50 is not happy running less than 10kw. They should be using the J1000 at night. "
Yes, they should. 3DX50 is not type-accepted below 2 kW. They used to use the AMPFET1, but the pattern change would take about 5 seconds (because of bringing up the 1, and that was too long. Also it would save on the electric bill not running the big box.
Off axis presentation is NOT the way to address "P" popping...that's what mic foam is for! With proper mic technique "P" pops should be minimal anyway. "Lips on the mic" for proximity effect is bad technique - this can be addressed with mic processing.
But what do I know? What works for Bubba...works for Bubba!

I really did not like how bubba sounded even back on 98.7.... I don't listen to 820 much but when I had it on both the hdr16 and EP the other day it did not sound too bad to me. It's prob just bubba's show..... I was listening to him the other day and he did not even turn down music to talk over it.... It's an audio nightmare if you ask me.... I'm an up and coming audio engineer so audio is very important to me. I also run my own internet channel. I'm pretty picky about audio.
I realize this is a Bubba on 820 thread, but there's some engineers here I'd love to see reply to the following....
I can't stand the audio processing on 98.7. Not sure if it's just the HD signal or if it's sounding just as bad on the analog. To me... it sounds as if the mid-range is over-modulating or they're pushing the audio to hard. Not sure of the correct terms... but the station simply sounds very thin and not full at all. In fact, it's very noticeable on the 80's rock ballads. Flipping between stations that play relatively the same music (Use 94.9 as an example) and the audio is drastically different. It's to the point where I simply can't listen to 98.7 because of it. Please take a listen and let us know your thoughts. Is it just me?
I am sure the demographic age group of his listeners don't even know that AM even exists. I can't see him getting any ratings on WWBA and whatever listeners they had in the morning have probably fled to other stations. To paraphrase an old saying: "If a tree farts in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"
