NAB Radio Show to feature three day tech program


A comprehensive technical program will be held during The NAB Radio Show in Charlotte beginning 9/26. The program features the Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE) Radio Engineering Program, a two-part RF Safety Course, and an AM/FM Transmitter Workshop & Breakfast led by key technical professionals in radio.

The SBE Engineering Forum kicks off the program with sessions examining HD Radio technology, voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) measurements in broadcast systems and HD Radio measurements. The forum’s objective is to provide practical information and solutions to attendees, with strategies that can easily be implemented at their own stations.

Safety Consultant and founder of RF Safety Solutions Richard Strickland will instruct the NAB RF Safety Course on 9/27. Strickland’s expertise in RF safety development and training provides a unique opportunity for attendees to receive instruction on RF radiation issues, FCC and OSHA regulations, workplace hazards, and FCC enforcement activities.

John Bisset, northeast regional sales manager for Broadcast Electronics will lead the AM/FM Transmitter Workshop and Breakfast sponsored by BE on 9/28. This interactive class provides an in-depth look at transmitter troubleshooting with maintenance tips that can save stations from being pulled off the air. HD installation tips will also be discussed.
