20 Years of Radio magazine: January 1994


        Radio on FacebookJoin us on Facebook

The first issue of Radio magazine (originally titled BE Radio) was published in January 1994, but its roots go back much farther. In 1959, Broadcast Engineering magazine was launched to cover the technology of radio and television. By 1994, it was realized that while the two services are related broadcast efforts, the needs of their specific audiences warranted splitting the content into two publications.

January/February 1994

Radio magazine, now part of the NewBay Media group of publications, continues to cover the technology of radio broadcasting. Now in our 20th year, we'll look back at the first year of publication, which had six issues.

Articles in the January 1994 issue featured:
■ State-of-the-art remote broadcasts from anywhere in the world using a portable satellite phone and a Switched-56 telephone codec.
■ Software solutions for talk radio detailed call-screening software.
■ Weather services for radio stations discussed various methods of capturing the most accurate weather data.
■ A triple-synchronous transmitter setup in for three stations along the Kansas-Missouri border.
■ New products included the Auditronics Destiny 2000 console, the RE America 660/611 and 662/663 codecs, the HHB PDR1000 portable DAT recorder and the Computer Concepts DCS Live graphical interface for Windows.
