The educational conference within a conference is designed to provide radio engineering professionals “with practical and timely knowledge to improve overall station efficiency and performance,” as well as to further engineers’ career development.

If such topics as audio-over-IP, RF transmission, visual radio and streaming audio, remote backhaul, audio production and processing, data acquisition and protection, and hybrid radio are of interest to you, then Tech Tuesday attendance could prove beneficial.

Tech Tuesday kicks off with a keynote by Gary Cavell, winner of the 2019 NAB Radio Engineering Achievement award and president of Cavell, Mertz and Associates.

A session titled “AM Radio’s All-Digital Future” explores the world of all-digital AM broadcasting with a discussion by Dave Kolesar, a Hubbard Broadcasting engineer who speaks at length about the HD Radio testing being conducted at WFED-AM in Frederick, Md., in RBR+TVBR‘s upcoming Fall 2019 print edition.

Also on this panel is Xperi executive Senior Manager of Broadcast Engineering Russ Mundschenk, while serving as moderator is NAB VP/Advanced Engineering David Layer.

Radio equipment companies (and Tech Tuesday sponsors) including RCS, Comrex, Dielectric, Nautel, Enco, GatesAir and The Telos Alliance will present in breakout sessions.

Concluding the day’s panels is a “What’s Next in Radio Tech” discussion featuring iHeartMedia President of Business Development and Partnerships Michele LavenSteve Shultis of New York Public Radio, Nick Piggott of RadioDNS, engineering consultant Bert Goldman, and Joe D’Angelo of Xperi.
