October 2011 Meeting – Nautel’s New Transmitter Technologies

As stations reduce staff and engineers are responsible for more sites, modern techniques such as IP connectivity and monitoring permit better remote supervision, control and diagnostics even on web-enabled smart phones. We examine how up to half the trips to a remote site can be saved while at the same time, knowing the transmitter is operating properly, and knowing more about its operation than we could previously understand even standing in front of the unit. Software today also allows remote monitoring of many parameters whereas previously personnel and expensive discrete test equipment were required at the site.

Join us Wednesday, October 12 at noon at TV Magic, 8112 Engineer Road in San Diego as Nautel makes a presentation about the modern broadcast radio transmitter. Lunch is provided by Nautel. As always, members and guests are welcome. Expect the meeting to last until about 1:30 PM.
