Bill, what happened to your B.E. AM-6A that it needed a bunch of 
replacement parts?

We're having great results with AM HD on WHA - the digital blows people 
away when they hear it.  And the analog sounds good too. I'll admit WHA 
has a simpler implementation with a single tower non-directional than 
folks with a DA.

Don't get me started on BE. I've relegated our AM-6A to standby in 
favor of our
good old Nautel ND5 after BE screwed us on replacement parts to the 
tune of most
of the cost of a new transmitter. The Nautel
won't do HD but that's good by me. AM HD sucks

That's not good. I am surprised BE would do things that way. Not 
logical, and
not good for a quick reset. Are you interested in the MW-5?

That's been an excellent rig for us - we have an B.E. AM-6A and it runs
smooth.  Only three small gripes:  I would like more front panel
metering, the "local/remote" switch should have been on the front panel
rather than inside the card access door, and faults on the individual
modules cannot be reset without powering down or pulling the module.

I brought the local/remote function out to a rack panel (my switch
disables the external relays that interface the remote control to get
the same effect).  I'm also planning to add tiny fault reset
pushbuttons to the front of each module - I've got the wiring worked
out just need some time to do the installation.
