The STXe 60 is a Game Changer at WBBN.
The BE FXi 60 Exciter we installed in 2005 sounded great on the air through 11 years of uninterrupted service. But when a lightning strike took out our FXi 60 in early 2016, we needed a replacement unit fast! I called Don Backus with BE and inquired about a less expensive BE Exciter that could get us through this emergency and then remain in the rack as our backup exciter.
Don suggested the BE STXe 60 as an inexpensive backup for our sick FXi 60 and got one out the door to us fast! Well, as a famous NFL quarterback once said, “Never let your backup see the field.” Once we heard the STXe 60 on the air, game over! The STXe 60 is now our starting exciter and the repaired FXi 60 is now the backup. The STXe sounds awesome on the air with incredible detail. You can hear every instrument! The voices jump out of the radio, too!
