The word Madison doesn’t appear in the event’s title, but if you tell someone in engineering circles that you’re going to the Madison show, they probably know what you mean.
The 2010 Wisconsin Broadcasters Clinic will be held at the Madison Marriott West in Middleton, Wis., just west of Lake Mendota, on Oct. 26–28. This year the Society of Broadcast Engineers will conduct its national meeting there concurrently.
Among the presenters is Dave Hershberger of Continental Electronics, talking about elevated HD Radio power. His NAB paper on that topic was excerpted in the Aug. 18 issue of Radio World Engineering Extra.
Jeff Zigler of RCS is among speakers addressing “Not Just Audio Over IP, All of It Over IP,” about which Zigler wrote in the June 2 Radio World. Clinic topics also include the efficient use of FM composite, building engineering FM translators for AM stations, IP microwave links for STL and broadcast tower failures.
The clinic is structured, generally speaking, so that radio-oriented attendees can come on Tuesday and Wednesday, while TV-oriented visitors can come Wednesday and Thursday. The cost to attend is $130 for any two days or $150 for all three.
SBE events scheduled include its board meeting, membership meeting and national awards dinner; an SBE Awards ticket costs extra.
Radio-related exhibitors include Broadcast Electronics, Broadcasters General Store, Continental, Comrex, Dielectric, ERI, Full Compass, Gorman-Redlich, Logitek, Nautel, RAM Systems, RCS, Stainless, Switchcraft and WideOrbit among others.
