A question for the CRTech brain trust with experience in using the Barix 500 Exstreamer.
I have been working with an FM Translator group located in the western U.S. in an attempt to return them to air after another FM Translator they were rebroadcasting
in daisy-chain manner from a full power FM went silent. They are too distant from the originating FM to rebroadcast directly. Since the FM translator is in the NCE band, we are planning to purchase a Crown FM 30T Transmitter and feed audio to it from the Barix
500 Exstreamer set to the mother station’s MP3 listener IP stream at 64 Kbps.(The Barix unit was donated to the group for this purpose in an effort to help out this cash-starved group.)
I know the Barix 500 Exstreamer is designed to work with another unit to send and receive. But has anyone successfully used the Barix 500 Exstreamer as a receive-only
stand-alone unit in a manner such as described above?
What were your experiences? Any suggestions for this type of application?
