I'm really stumped trying to get this NX5 running right. The manual gives the most useless information "get IP address, gateway, DNS, etc from your IT manager".

Although there's no internet at the AM site, I've set up a local Win7 Pro computer and hooked it directly to the NX5, and hope to see the AUI so I can set up the monthly day/night times, which seems impossible to do from the front of the transmitter. Choosing "Schedule" doesn't open any options that I can find.

Another issue is the analog audio sensitivity which is factory set at the standard +10 dBm. Changing it from the front of the transmitter makes no difference at all and our STL maxes out at 8dBm so I can't modulate to 100% negative. Pushing the STL xmtr doesn't help because it overmodulates, and closes the receiver squelch :(

Never having worked with any Nautel xmtr, I expect the problem is mostly me; besides, I'm an FM guy. So I need help from all y'all who know Nautel's quirks.
