FWIW, there is an article in this month’s
Radio magazine about Cumulus’s install of water cooled rigs in Bridgeport, CT. One thing I noticed is that the heat exchangers are put outside. I’m thinking that also puts them at risk of theft if not locked up beyond the building perimeter fence or
maybe put on the roof. I don’t think the depiction is a roof installation because there is a concrete pad under it all.

I don’t know if he is on this list, but Joshua Pierce at Blue Ridge Broadcasting’s WMIT-FM, Black Mountain, NC has extensive experience with both of the current GatesAir and Rohde & Schwarz liquid cooled FM transmitters. i’m sure he’d
be happy to share his experiences.

Do you have experience with the new liquid cooled F.M. transmitters that are now available?
I'd love to read your thoughts now that you have one and have experience with one, or more transmitters.
