What's behind the claims of costs of the DMCA, the RIAA and AFTRA.
As online listening increases and costs follow, the decision to stream is no longer simple. After all, streaming is very different from the traditional broadcast model.
For towers that require incandescent lighting, regular tower-light inspection and maintenance is a task that tower owners must undertake. The annoyances lie in changing a burned-out lamp, affording the cost of a tower climber, timing convenience of the failure.

In 1998, the IEEE adopted the standard defining one Gigabit (1Gb) Ethernet over fiber optic cabling. In June of 1999, the standard defining 1 Gigabit Ethernet, or 1000BaseT, over copper pairs was ratified.
Part One described the events leading to the development of top loading of broadcast AM antennas. This part continues with details of the types of top loading and discusses the use of the FCC's Rules in planning a top-loaded antenna system.
At this time of year it is customary to look back at the events of the past and look ahead to the possible future.
Since the Telecommunications act of 1996, groups all over the country started staking out dominant market shares. By 2000 times were good. Owners and managers were making money and servicing their debt load in a strong economy. What a difference in a year.
It's been a year to remember - or perhaps to forget. Wall Street witnessed figurative and real collapses, and radio has felt the ripples generated from that.
In November 2000 the Commission created a new FM channel classification to join Classes A, B, B1, C, C1, C2 and C3. Use of the new class - Class C-0 (C-Zero) - permits upgrades of existing stations and new allocations based on the reduced spacing protections, which will apply when Class C stations are converted to Class C-0.
At a first glance, Epicenter might seem like just another audio routing switcher, but behind the front panel and flashing lights, there's a lot more going on.

As part of Chairman Powell's efforts to reform the FCC, the Mass Media Bureau, which handles all radio and television matters, will be merged into the Cable Services Bureau, which handles all cable matters, to form a new Media Bureau.
Simple point-to-point audio paths have become complex networks joining multiple studio facilities and transmitter sites, sometimes spread over a large area.
As the economy continues its downturn, and radio revenue continues to decrease, station managers must use all their powers and all the tools at their disposal to increase the bottom line. Unfortunately, it now appears that the worst case is a reality, with even greater downside potential if future events cause greater disruption to the economy.
Last month I wrote about the role that traditional broadcasting played in relaying information when many newer technologies could not keep up with the events of September 11. Just days before that event, I was putting some thoughts together about another event that took place earlier that same month: the NAB Radio Show.
Engineers charged with the job of designing a new AM transmitter facility nearly always try to plan for the tallest tower possible. This is not just an ego trip; it's because the taller the AM radiator, the higher the field strength developed in the listening area with a given power.
A quality digital installation requires more than good equipment.
