I am a fan of Nautel but have a client with several Flexivas that he absolutely loves.  I mostly do AM work for him so haven't had occasion to even see them.

I must say that I have had much more infant mortality problems with Harris/Gates & BE over the years than I have had with Nautel.  Others report quite the opposite but that is my experience.  I am really more concerned with the financial stability of BE and GatesAir than the quality of the equipment although I have not had very good experience with BE's modern FM offerings.

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!
