By plugging in the numbers, you'll retrieve a satellite photo of the location with a resolution of 1 meter.
They will take NAD 27 or NAD 83 numbers. I found my building but haven't had much luck with mountain tops other than Sutro.
A GPS box usually puts out NAD 83 numbers and they need to be converted to NAD 27 for use on FCC applications. (Thank you Dane Ericksen for that tip.)
[My favorite satellite photo site is produced by Microsoft known as the Teraserver - Tim Pozar]
My contribution to your site list is:
At that site you can plug in a zip code and get back a latitude and longitude for the location. At present it just handles 5 digit zip codes.
#99-012 EQUIPMENT SYSTEMS SPECIALIST (Staff Engineer), Media and Technology Services, Full-time (40hrs/wk), $3348 - 4390/mo. Hours: T-Th 1:30PM - 10:00PM, Fri 10:00AM - 6:30PM, Sat 8:30AM - 5:00PMThe closing date was Feb 12 but I'd give it a try as living breathing geeks are hard to come by. They didn't supply a phone number or an address.
One report I've heard is that the harmonics from an IOT are a function of the way the beam forms rather than how much drive is used. I'm looking forward to Doug Lung's 2nd article on IOTs in TV Technology.
Another open question is just how much filter do you really need? KTVU, KRON, KPIX, and KGO have harmonic filters, the Dielectric waffle iron filters, and channel filters. How little can you get use and still meet the spec?
We sent a copy of the announcement to everyone on our chapter email list and also posted it on the Web Site.
