Over the past few years I've installed a few GatesAir FAX series xmtrs (up to 10kw), and the results have been fantastic.  They have been noticeably more reliable than the hand-full of Nautel boxes (again, up to 10kw) I've installed, which came with a variety of problems right out of the box.

My thought is, if a US manufacturer has a product that's as good (or better), and for the same (or better) price, they deserve a shot.  I gave GatesAir a shot, and have NOT been disappointed!  As long as they keep turning out such great products, for such competitive prices, they will have my business.  We also had some rather unpleasant interactions with customs trying to get parts out of Nautel.  I don't think I wanna go there again...ever.

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!
