NAB Radio Show to Feature Three Day Technical Program

WASHINGTON, DC - A comprehensive technical program will be held during The NAB Radio Show at the Charlotte Convention Center beginning Wednesday, September 26. The program features the Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE) Radio Engineering Program, a two-part RF Safety Course, and an AM/FM Transmitter Workshop & Breakfast led by key technical professionals in radio.

The SBE Engineering Forum kicks off the program with sessions examining HD Radio technology, voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) measurements in broadcast systems and HD Radio measurements. The forum's objective is to provide practical information and solutions to attendees, with strategies that can easily be implemented at their own stations.

Safety Consultant and founder of RF Safety Solutions Richard Strickland will instruct the NAB RF Safety Course on Thursday, September 27. Strickland's expertise in RF safety development and training provides a unique opportunity for attendees to receive instruction on RF radiation issues, FCC and OSHA regulations, workplace hazards, and FCC enforcement activities.

Strickland founded RF Safety Solutions in 2001 after ten years as Director of Business Development for Narda Safety Test Solutions. During his tenure at Narda, he headed the development of numerous RF measurement products, including the Nardalert XT, named one of the world's 100 most significant new products by R & D Magazine. He has taught more than one hundred and fifty public and private seminars on RF radiation safety and is the author of numerous articles on RF safety practices and measurement issues.

John Bisset, northeast regional sales manager for Broadcast Electronics and Radio World magazine contributor, will lead the AM/FM Transmitter Workshop and Breakfast sponsored by Broadcast Electronics on September 28. This interactive class provides an in-depth look at transmitter troubleshooting with maintenance tips that can save stations from being pulled off the air. HD installation tips will also be discussed, a crucial issue for those planning a future HD upgrade.

Known for his popular 'Workbench' column featured in Radio World, Bisset has worked in broadcasting for over 30 years. Starting as a DJ, Bisset moved into engineering, earning degrees in marketing and broadcast engineering technology. He has worked as a chief engineer, taught college-level broadcast engineering courses and is SBE Certified.
