Nuclear Cooling Tower Exhaust Tunnel Pressure Wave Satsop by devtank published on 2012-09-11T19:33:26Z 20120818.STSP.JO©.003 Satsop is an unfinished Nuclear Power Plant, which commenced construction in 1977 and was stopped in 1983 after a $961,000,000 budget overrun, at only 76% completion. It was maintained, for 11 years, until 1994, when it was finally canceled in 1995, it was eventually turned Business Park. Business seem to come and go, but ultimately the place offers a physically strong building built to withstand the force of a nuclear reactor overload and the impact of a full speed Boeing 747 impact, and with that come some added bonuses like perfectly silent acoustics where one part of the main reactor room has been transformed into a sound testing facility. Because of the budgetary screwup the common name for Satsop is whoops, an acronym; WPPSS (Washington Public Power Supply System). I no-longer have the Sony PCM-D50, after 6 years I have opted to go with a slightly lesser quality but more flexible Roland R-26 because I can use more mics at one time. if anyone is thinking of buying a field recorder then the Sony PCM-D1 is simply the highest quality sound from a hand held pocket recorder that money can buy, but, it doesn't support external mics. The D50 does and its mic quality does not suffer because its a cheaper device. My preference is to record using binaural mics and a mixture of other mics like cardiods, contact mics, hydrophones and rifle mics also, and the R-26 allows this and records 6 channels at a time in BWF. Thank you.
