San Diego Ennes Workshop a Success

San Diego’s first Ennes Workshop October 16th brought famous broadcast engineering speakers from all over the country, and engineers from throughout southern California. With at least 37 attendees and the number of inspirational, educational talks given, the event seemed to be a success. Notable speeches included Steve Lampen of Belden giving a talk on convergence of media, Skip Erickson wowed the crowd with his disaster recovery presentation, and Dave Davies of ERI brought us tales of woe from tower failures around the country.

Many thanks to organizers Kimberly Kissel from SBE headquarters and Gail Pineda from Chapter 36 who made sure everything worked well behind the scenes. Fred Baumgartner, formerly with Qualcomm in San Diego and now working for Harris in Denver, was instrumental in getting the program put together.

Harris is pleased to invite you and your engineering staff to a special dinner and presentation from 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM on Wednesday August 13th at our favorite spot, The Butcher Shop. Dinner is being served at 6:30 PM.

Harris will be featuring their latest Value Engineered products and a presentation provided by Tim Anderson on the proposed -10dB HD sideband power increase and how this will affect you. Tim has more than 30 years experience in broadcast engineering. He joined Harris Corporation in August 2007 as Radio Product Line Manager.  Prior to joining Harris, he served as a broadcast engineer for iBiquity Digital, developer of the HD Radio™ standard.  While there, he was instrumental in the development and testing of the HD Radio transmission system and advanced application services.

Come enjoy a great dinner and informative presentation complements of Harris. Since Dinner is provided I would request that you confirm you can make it and give me a head count of the folks that will be coming so we can prepare accordingly.
