OECD broadband penetration 

Looking back at a 1966 photo of Dave Land, and OECD broadband penetration.

Field Report: ATI DM500 

In this review, Doug Irwin rates the DM500 as very useful around the radio station facility.

Field Report: FM Services TLM-1 

I would recommend you consider the TLM-1 when the need for a tower light monitor arises, especially if you have a tower light circuit where a separate wire is not available for each sidelight and beacon level.

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.

KRK Systems Rokit G2 

It is obvious KRK put some work into these speakers, with intuitive features that make the Rokit Series adaptable to many acoustic environments and audio situations. I must say, when you consider the price, the sound and the features, these speakers stack up pretty well against the competition.

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.

Looking for change at the FCC 

We're due for a chairman who can lead the FCC and make real progress. Who's the next chairman? Julius Genachowski, Don Gips, Larry Strickling and Blair Levin are some of the names I have heard.

FCC adopts new methodology for AM proofs 

At long last, the FCC is permitting directional AM stations and permittees to submit proofs of performance using moment modeling in lieu of proofs based on extensive field measurements.

DM Engineering Audio-Pod 

If you are looking for a way to improve your remote broadcast setup and make your show hosts happy, the Audio-Pod is a handy and cost-effective problem solver.

Sign Off 

Looking back at photos from Johnny Beerling's Radio 1 book and looking ahead with radio revenue projections.

Transmission lines 

A transmission line is a far more complex piece of equipment than many people realize. In its simplest form it may be considered as just a pair of wires merely carrying ac power.

Tips, tricks, hints and more on finding a cable break 

A simple way to find a cable break is to use the regular telephone tone generator and the inductive amplifier.
