The Alabama Broadcasters Association is invited Michigan broadcasters to participate for free in their monthly engineering webinar series. The first webinar will be this Tuesday, January 19 from 11 a.m. to Noon Eastern Time and will feature Bert Goldman, president of Goldman Engineering Management, Inc.
Goldman brings more than 40 years of experience and specializes in analyzing AM and FM spectrum for the purpose of improving facility coverage and value as well as all facets of construction. He has extensive experience in the latest FM single frequency network (SFN) design and implementation and has participated in experimental testing of geo-targeted SFN operation. Goldman is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE), and is an associate member of the Association of Federal Communications Consulting Engineers (AFCCE).
He will discuss the status of Geo targeting with FM boosters. Geo Targeting will enable FM stations with boosters to air specific content (commercials, news, weather) to the area served by the booster. This content would be different from that aired on the main channel.
Certified SBE members attending these webinars receive ½ recertification credit in Category I.
