Drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles, are useful in several broadcast operations, including ENG, tower inspections, site documentation, signal measurements, and even training videos. During this hour and half webinar, we will explore these uses and discuss FAA requirements, including how to get your Remote Pilot license, and some of the challenges and opportunities drones can bring to your stations. Sam Wallington, vice president of engineering, Educational Media Foundation (K-Love/Air) presents on Thursday, October 19, 11:00 AM to 12:15 PM PDT.

This all-day seminar at KLCS-TV in Los Angeles will cover education about electricity and basic electrical safety techniques designed to keep you alive! When you are done with this one day course and pass the in-class written test, you will receive a certificate for Electrical Safety – Cal-OHSA, Title 8 and NFPA 70E (2015 standards).
Presented by Joseph O’Dwyer, President O’Dwyer Technical Services. Joe has taught this class to Disney, ESPN, ABC, Apple, JP Morgan, Boeing and many other corporate employees. Is it raw? Yes. Is it scary? Yes. Will there be gory pictures and videos? Absolutely.
This class is not meant to teach you to be an electrician, but if you deal with electricity at tower sites, transmitter sites or even studios, or you find yourself presented with electrical situations alone at these sites, this class is for you. Consider bringing your facilities personnel. Have you ever had to open an old, rusty panel with electricity in it and maybe its a little dirty? WAIT, don’t open it before you attend this class! Be smart and be prepared! We’re not talking snakes and rats here.

The “Importance of Proper Grounding” SBE webinar will be presented on Thursday, July 23 at 2 p.m. ET. The one-hour program will review the elements of a building’s wiring and grounding systems (including lightning protection) that pertain to power quality at communications facilities and improve up-time. Proper wiring and grounding, beyond those minimal requirements of the NEC, can greatly alleviate power quality problems in broadcast and public service communications facilities. These improvements can be very cost-effective, usually simple in description, and help prevent costly downtime and equipment damage. The presentation concentrates on actual experiences at broadcast facilities where grounding and lightning protection were of paramount importance in maintaining system availability.
