I have heard GatesAir Flexiva are more reliable than Nautel. We have several Nautels that needed circuit boards and PSU modules replaced. We also have two Flexivas, but in use only a few months.
Ecreso less reliable, especially less than Crown Classic. I know an engineer maintaining Ecreso who had to install “remote reboot” AC power contactors in the 220 volt AC primary feed to remotely reboot them when needed.

Subject: [CRTech] Transmitter Suggestions
We just received a $10,000 grant to go towards the purchase of a new transmitter here at KCFY. I already know that Nautel is a really good transmitter if you can afford it. I'm really looking for opinions on some other options. Anyone using GatesAir Flexiva Solid State Transmitters, or Ecreso Solid State Transmitters. Our plan is to move our current QEI Transmitter to the backup position and put a new transmitter as the main.
Appreciate your thoughts!
