June 2019 Meeting: Dielectric and Local TV Repack Projects

Now that the dust has settled on the TV channel repack projects in Southern California, how did it go? What were the challenges and how were they met? Steve Moreen will discuss the current status of the TV repack with updates on the TV markets of Los Angeles and San Diego.  The second part of the presentation will review the technical specifications and assembly drawings of the new KPBS-TV antenna, illustrating the inner workings of a slot style UHF TV antenna.  The final segment will include a short visual tour of the Dielectric factories.

Join us Wednesday, June 19 at 12 noon at iHeartMedia, 9660 Granite Ridge Drive in San Diego. Lunch will be provided by Dielectric. You’re always welcome to attend whether a member or not.
