Field Report: Intrinsic Net Studio Hawk 

Several versions of the Hawk and now the Studio Hawk have been an indispensible safety net for our operations in Birmingham and Tuscaloosa for several years now. I feel comfortable enough to "disengage" from constant monitoring knowing the Studio Hawk will alert me the minute any one of our stations has an audio problem.

Genelec's 6010A and 5040A active speaker system allows for portable and compact studio reference monitoring with no sacrifice of quality and accuracy. Setup is a breeze and the acoustic design makes for stellar performance in not-so-stellar environments.

FCC cracks down on noncommercial "commercials" 

What precisely constitutes a commercial is not easily determined. Generally NCE stations cannot accept payment in return for the on-air promotion of commercial activities.

The application of NEC programs 

The NEC programs offer a great improvement over the slide rule era when the sheer volume of manual operations involved tended to influence full and comprehensive searches for perfection.

Quality of service - Quality in manufacturing 

A fellow engineer tells me about some recent equipment failures, and he is concerned about the quality of manufacturing. I understand his concern. There is an expectation for a professional product to provide reliable service. He is not expecting unrealistic support, but he is expecting the product to work.

President Obama's changes to the FCC 

The bad taste of former Chairman Kevin Martin still lingers, but immediate efforts are being made to cleanse that memory. The first step was President Obama naming Michael Copps to be the interim chairman of the FCC.

When does an omni antenna become a DA? 

In a recently-filed petition against an FM station modification, an issue was raised as to whether a proposed omnidirectional antenna should be treated as directional due to pattern distortion resulting from tower mounting and compensating antenna design features.

What's happening at 700MHz? 

The newly cleared spectrum is perhaps some of the most desirable largely due to the fact that radio frequency in this lower range travels farther and tends to penetrate buildings more efficiently than higher frequencies.
