The pre-distortion of the signal, to make it fit into the FCC mask, takes place in the 8VSB modulator. Don't look in the published block diagrams. Instead, Place your hand on the ASTC test report and smile proudly into the rising sun. Also, filling a slot in the modulator, is a circuit that can mimic the delay characteristics of the channel filter. No peaking. (You'd better bet your sweet tweaker there is.)
Have a nice bandwidth.
We use a CODI in master control that can be loaded with text by the news dept.. They got to be real good at picking off the NWS wire copy and pasting it. Often it was loaded and ready prior to KCBS kicking off the party.
While I've said that if KCBS don't play the music, we won't dance, we also groove to KQED's Eine Kleine EAS musik.
Another Gabbert story has to do with a directional antenna that I believe engineering legend Al Eisberg designed for (then) KNBC-FM. It was in the bone yard up a San Bruno and Jim recognized it for what it was and adapted it for KPEN. He was authorized for 120KW in the major lobes before the blue meanies came up with the "new rules" in the early 60s.
What makes this a little sticky is that there is one call letter file per taxpayer ID. If there are a number of stations in a group with a common EIN (employer identification number), then all the calls have to be gathered and uploaded at one time. You can upload a plain text file with one call letter per line. I've done a little more extensive article on this topic. It's on our Web page.
