‘Transmission Talk Tuesday’: One Year of Discussions


Nautel has announced the June 2021 topics for the Jeff Welton-hosted “Transmission Talk Tuesday” roundtable sessions, which have now been taking place for a full year.

These interactive discussion sessions have covered a broad range of engineering-oriented topics, providing an opportunity for engineers to learn and discuss ideas with their peers.

“When we started these sessions in June 2020, it was a way to stay in touch with our friends in the Radio community and keep ideas flowing through the pandemic lockdowns,” Welton said. “We had no idea that our online gatherings would still be in place a year later, or that they would remain as popular as they have been.”

Since the inception of the online seminars, an average attendance of over 100 people for each session has been seen.

Topics for June 2021 include:

“How Technology has Changed our Lives,” June 8.

Changes in technology have dramatically affected the way people work over the past 10 – 15 years. Welton will be joined by Jim Gray, Managing Partner for Optimized Media Group, and Matt Herdon, Product Manager for Nautel.

“SNMP – How and Why,” on June 15.

Josh Bohn, President/CEO of the MaxxKonnect Group and Shane Toven, Senior Engineer with Educational Media Foundation, will join Welton to talk about interfacing SNMP managers with transmitters and other devices, and how to manage the data.

“STLs – Moving Signals from Here to There,” on June 22.

Josh Bohn will join Welton and Customer Service Technologist Alex Hartman to talk about different ways of getting audio and data from Point A to Point B, as well as thoughts on how the future will look for STLs.

“Tips and Thoughts for Contract Engineering,” on June 29.

Tom Ray, president of Tom Ray Broadcast Consulting, will join Welton to talk about the challenges faced by contract engineers and some of the “must do” business and planning items for contract engineers.

All sessions begin at noon Eastern and pre-registration is required. For more information and to register, visit Nautel.com/webinars/.

Sessions are also posted online for those who are unable to join the live chats.
