connection to Crown FM500 Translator
« on: November 13, 2014, 12:16:10 am »
Does anyone have experience connecting the RDS5 to a Crown FM 500 Translator. I'm currently using it in mono mode since it is just using speech only but I could put it in stereo if necessary .

Correct connection is as follows:

PIRA32 configuration: JP2 jumper removed, JP4 (boost) jumper removed, output RDS level set to maximum

PIRA32 output -> FM500 SCA input
FM500 Remote IO pin 3 composite out (pin 1 ground) -> PIRA32 input
