NAB2005 Preview and FASTtrack 

Welcome to the Radio magazine NAB2005 Preview. You don't have time to wander all the exhibits in hopes that you'll stumble across the right products, so use the Radio magazine FASTtrack as your guide.

Find the missing link: Studio to transmitter links 

Engineers need to be concerned with the ability of an STL system to deliver multiple data streams over and above what we consider to be the station’s program audio to the transmitter site.

A small market with big ideas 

In January of 2004, Renda consolidated all its stations into a facility in downtown Indiana, PA.

NAB2005 The Technical Sessions 

The Broadcast Engineering Conference enters its 59th year by presenting topics that cover the entire range of radio broadcast engineering at NAB2005.

The best laid plans 

In most cases, the plans are set and followed with minor variations because of challenges. In the case of Journal’s Omaha stations, just finalizing the plan was the challenge.

The right choice in an On-air console 

Once a tool for the privileged few, digital consoles have grown in popularity and in available choices, while the cost of these consoles has continued to fall.

Site security 

Although no amount of security can deter a determined intruder, a burglar will definitely look for an easier target rather than risk being slowed down by a facility’s defenses and be caught in the act.

How Tomorrow Radio Works 

Supplemental audio is poised to be one of the first data services used in HD Radio and is a key differentiator from the current analog service.

Fox News 

Step inside the studio used by Bill O'Reilly and Alan Colmes at Fox News.

A New Michigan Radio 

WUOM, Michigan Radio, went through a revitalization in 1996, launching an NPR news/talk format that has led to a near quadrupling in audience since then. See how the new studios have helped the station achieve this success.

Reliable Connections 

While remotes and live events are the primary use, many stations are using POTS and ISDN codecs for back-up STLs and other itinerant applications.

Surround takes to the airwaves 

KUVO broadcast three-time Grammy-winner Dianne Reeves with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra (CSO) live using a Harris Neustar 5225 downmix system. The event marked the first regular use of a surround broadcast in IBOC.

Proving Performance: Test and measurement 

While the basic skills of evaluating system performance are still in place, the tools and the methods used today are changing significantly. Digital signals require analog tools, but you can't neglect the analog elements either.

Practical form, affordable plans 

When Nassau set out to build a consolidated facility for its stations in southern New Hampshire, the goal was to create a reliable and functional facility without breaking the bank. The engineering team had to overcome several obstacles, including the physical location, as well as challenges from the site owner and the local telephone company.

The end of ISDN? 

When the project began, Nassau New Hampshire ordered five ISDN and POTS codecs. Now Verizon says that ISDN is not available.

Random Sample 

Surround sound is not a new concept to consumers. The advent of HDTV, DVDs, SACD, DTS and other media have increased consumer awareness of the enhanced audio experience of surround sound.

KUVO in Surround 

On Sept. 24, KUVO-FM, Denver, featured a surround sound broadcast of Dianne Reeves performing with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra.

Processing Surround 

Is there a surround audio processor in your future? Without a doubt, but if you're expecting something like a five-channel version of your current stereo processor, think again.
