Field Report: Burk Watchband
I have installed three units and use them every week to listen to our stations, monitor for dead air and monitor our AMs when power level changes occur. The programming department uses it to listen to our stations, critique announcers and listen to the competition. Tony Gervasi, senior VP of engineering and technology for Nassau Broadcasting, was so impressed with the unit's performance in our Vermont region that we are now rolling the units out in our clusters from Maine through Maryland.
A single Watchband receiver allows the user to monitor multi-channels one at a time. However, if a second receiver is connected to the Watchband server it can monitor multiple signals at the same time.
Watchband is the perfect answer for out-of-market monitoring with some powerful tools to monitor and create custom reports giving you the information you need for compliance monitoring.
