March 9th – 11th at The Colorado Media School
Colorado’s broadcasters are concerned about the shrinking number of broadcast engineers. The CBA’s goal is to introduce existing broadcasters, and those looking to enter the industry, to the world of radio engineering. A FREE 3-day Radio Engineering course will be taught by Larry Wilkins. Larry has over 40 years of radio and TV engineering experience and has served on the SBE National Board of Directors and presently serves on the SBE Certification Committee. He holds Certified Professional Broadcast Engineer (CPBE), AM Directional (AMD) and Certified Broadcast Network Technology (CBNT) certifications.
A broadcast engineer has to take programming material and deliver it to the listener with minimum degradation. While that sounds simple, it can involve a good amount of equipment and expertise. It requires a knowledge of sound and how the human ear and brain process sound. During our 3-day seminar “Radio 101” Larry will cover these areas, plus how to create an efficient and FCC compliant operation.
Station managers and engineers should encourage people who have a natural interest in technology to attend this course. For broadcast employees and those with interest in broadcasting, who desire to explore the engineering side of radio, this course will provide the basics of what you need to know.
The 3-day course will be held at The Colorado Media School, Monday, March 9th through Wednesday, March 11th. Each day starts at 9:00 A.M. and ends around 4:00 P.M.
There is no cost to attend, but there is a limit to class size. Registration closes on March 5th. Transportation, meals and lodging are the responsibility of the attendee.
