October has few broadcast engineering events, so mark your calendars!
Thursday, October 20th, we will be having our October SBE meeting at Counterpoint Communications/WJMJ in Prospect CT. Dave Kirstin from Broadcasters General Store is sponsoring the meeting. The Telos Alliance will be on hand, which includes products not only from Telos, but Omnia, Axia, Linear Accoustics, 25-Seven, and Minnetonka Audio. Also Comrex and Telefunken will be there as well.
Monday, October 17th the CBA (Connecticut Broadcasters Association will be having it annual conference at Quinnipiac University in Hamden CT. As in the past, there will be informative sessions related to broadcast engineering. The keynote luncheon speaker will be FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel and NAB’s Chief Technology Officer, Sam Matheny, to discuss the latest in broadcast engineering. Details on the session and registration information can be found at www.ctba.org Note, if an engineer would like to attend, but has a financial hardship, please contact Mike Rice of the CBA at firstname.lastname@example.org
To assist those freelance engineers who don't have a station that will pick up the tab, we have decided to offer half-price admission to the CBA convention on October 17th.
Please spread the word that we are offering $20 admission to those engineers who register by next Wednesday. They can use the attached registration form, or go online to Eventbrite.com. Tell them to be patient with the online registration because we'll have to make adjustments in order to accept a $20 fee. You can use the cover note below to accompany the attached convention agenda, which I think has some worthwhile stuff for engineers. Hope this helps your community and hope to see you on Oct. 17th.
Dear Broadcast Engineers: The responsibility for being able to stay on the air in the event of bad weather or an emergency rests with you.
As you'll see in the attached agenda for our annual convention on October 17th, we've arranged for representatives of FEMA and the Dept. of Homeland Security to address what being ready means to broadcast engineers.
In addition, NAB's Chief Technology Officer Sam Matheny will present on the future of broadcast technology, including NAB's "Pilot" consortium.
The day will be capped off with a keynote luncheon speech by FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel.
Please go to Eventbrite.com and register for the CBA convention today, or complete the attached registration form and return it by October 12.
We look forward to seeing you on October 17th!
Wednesday, October 12-14th, the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers) Broadcast Symposium at the Hartford Marriot in Hartford CT.
