This month: Harris HPX Field Report

Bruce Roberts
Chief Engineer
Apex Broadcasting
Charleston, SC

Roberts got the radio bug when he was 8 years old and ran the PA for a church broadcast on the radio. When he turned 18 he took a part-time weekend job at WEZL Charleston helping the contract engineer. He left radio for a short time but stayed in electronics. He returned to WEZL where he was encouraged to get his First Class FCC License (required at the time) which led to him becoming the chief engineer. By 1982 he owned a class A FM in Charleston. Today he owns and operates a recording studio.

Field Report: Harris HPX

It appears Harris did some serious homework on this transmitter. The controller is like nothing I have ever seen before….
