Intro to Radio Engineering Academy

EA Logo 8-2016

October 8th – 10th 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 outside our industry, to the world of radio engineering.

A FREE 3-day Intro to 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.

Station managers and engineers should identify and send employees who have a natural interest in technology. Broadcast employees who desire to venture into the engineering side of radio, this course will provide you with the basics of radio engineering.

Topics include:

  • “It’s what comes out of the speaker that counts” (sounds waves & audio streams)
  • “Why are they louder than us?” (Understanding proper analog and digital processing )
  • “Do we really live in a digital world” (understanding 1’s & 0’s / A-D conversion)
  • “Too much of the good stuff” (understanding digital compression)
  • “It goes in here & comes out there” (review of AM/FM and HD RF generation)
  • “Are we coming in clear?” (review of FM antennas plus AM non-DA & DA systems)
  • “The FCC is in the lobby” (Overview of FCC rules)
  • “I need that by COB today” (engineering management)

The 3-day course will be held at The Colorado Media School, Monday, October 8th through Wednesday, October 10th. Each day starts at 9:00 A.M. and ends around 4:00 P.M.

We welcome all to attend FOR FREE, but there is a limit to the class size. Registration closes on October 3rd. Transportation, meals and lodging are the responsibility of the attendee.
