Our May meeting will be Tuesday, May 15 at the Out-O-Town Club at Noon. Our program will be “Antenna and RF System Design for the FCC Repack” by Eddy Vanderkerken of RFS World. This presentation will give insight into how antenna design influences radiation patterns, how the design and manufacturing of antennas and RF filters has evolved, and the software tools that can be used to select the optimum solutions for the TV broadcaster during the FCC repack and beyond.

I’d like to take a moment to call your attention to this important notice from the National SBE Office. This impacts any broadcaster that uses a C Band satellite dish to receive programming for rebroadcast.
Please strongly consider licensing your satellite dish during this brief window. I will keep a file of vendors providing this service in an effort to find the least costly way for you to do this. Yes I understand it is an unplanned expense, but the costs of NOT doing so might be much more. Protect your broadcasts and license that earth station!
This affects ALL RADIO STATIONS with the large satellite receive dishes. Reach out to your smaller broadcaster friends and clients – be sure they understand this issue!
If you have questions about this issue, e-mail me at [email protected] and I will attempt to find answers for you.
This is from one vendor that can assist in registration
