2014 NASB Meeting Held at IBB's Greenville Transmitting Facility
June 16, 2014 - The Annual Meeting of the NASB (USA) was held May 15-16, at the International Broadcasting Bureau (IBB) Edward R. Murrow Transmitting Station in Greenville, NC. More than 25 people from more than 10 broadcaster organizations attended, according to DRM news.
The agenda included discussions and meetings about current topics including digital text messages and pictures via shortwave, the latest antenna technology, and DRM. The DRM presentations and discussions included those from Calvin Carter of Continental Electronics Corporation; George Ross of TWR (KTWR) in Guam, who talked about their DRM broadcasts and the many thousands of listeners they have in Asia; and, Christopher Rumbaugh, who had a presentation from the perspective of a listener.
A highlight of the meeting was a two-hour tour of the IBB facilities in Greenville, which included many of the 41 antennas on the 600+ acre grounds. Inside, the tour continued by looking and several of the 11 high power shortwave transmitters and the control room. Many of the attendees were amazed at the sheer size and complexity of the facility. A great tour of the facility can be seen here.
