Bonneville Goes Digital in St. Louis 

Bonneville International had a major problem with its four newly acquired radio stations in St. Louis, but it was nothing that a new studio couldn't fix.

Automation 

The humble beginnings of a system to automate the functions of an announcer with a mechanical, tape-based machine are only a small part of the wide range of functions that can be handled today.

PADding the truth 

One obstacle in displaying PAD from an automation system is that the information entered into the system may not have been keyed in a form that is suitable for the public.

The extra bits in IBOC 

Data has always been a part of the IBOC plan, but it is just being recognized for its current and future capabilities.

The Proper Support 

The one element of an air studio that makes everything work together is often the most overlooked.

Syndicating a Website's Content in Five Minutes 

RSS is being seen by increasing numbers of Web users as an alternative to e-mail, because it can be used by Web surfers to track changes on websites without requiring a user to release an e-mail address.

KQED: Improving on excellence 

When the most-listened-to public radio station in the country upgrades to all-digital production, you can be certain that it will not be a timid or hesitant move.

WLRN expands its on-air services

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Fox News
