The IEEE Broadcast Symposium, going on now here in the Washington area, will move to new locations for at least the next two years.

Lond held in the D.C. area, the IEEE Broadcast Symposium will move to San Diego in 2013, then to San Antonio in 2014. Both events will be held in mid-October, but exact dates and details about location are to be announced soon, according to the IEEE.
Tom Silliman of ERI was on hand to discuss tower safety issues.

Though they historically have held their event in the Washington metro, organizers have been trying to grow it. The administrative committee of the IEEE’s Broadcast Technology Society, which organizes the symposium, said they want to provide a “greater variety of venue” and better serve the members, both here and abroad.

Officials made the announcement at this year’s symposium, which is taking place now in Alexandria, Va. through Friday. James O’Neal of TV Technology and Radio World snapped some photos, shown, and Radio World will have more coverage this week.

The organization's mission statement: “The IEEE Broadcast Technology Society is one of the technical societies of the IEEE. The field of interest of the BTS encompasses devices, equipment, techniques, and systems related to broadcast technology, including the production, distribution, wired and wireless transmission, propagation aspects and reception.”
