Are You an AM Directional Specialist?

The Society of Broadcast Engineers Program of Certification offers a specialist certification (AM Directional Specialist or AMD) to help evaluate an individual's ability to perform the necessary tasks to keep facilities operating properly. Maintaining directional antenna arrays involves a higher degree of skill and understanding of RF theory.

The exam covers the operation, maintenance and repair of a directional antenna system. It also gauges a person's knowledge of AM radiators, understanding of the principles of phase addition and cancellation, familiarity with the various components used in a directional antenna system, and ability to correctly make necessary measurements and take proper procedures to make repairs and adjustments to the system.

To apply for a specialist certification, individuals must currently hold certification on the Broadcast Engineer, Senior Broadcast Engineer or Professional Broadcast Engineer Certification level. Contact the SBE for more information.
