Charles Jacobson Wins Transmitter

BE will award another in June

Broadcast Electronics said Charles Jacobson of HCJB Global won a drawing for a BE STX LP 1 kW low-power transmitter.

His name was drawn from entries submitted during the NAB show. Jacobson is manager of engineering and development for the technology department at HCJB Global, a non-profit Christian organization with a technical broadcast center in Elkhart, Ind. (Read the RW profile of the tech center.)

“HCJB Global pioneered Christian shortwave broadcasting starting in 1931 in Ecuador, and now has a global outreach that includes establishing low-power FM stations in all regions of the world,” BE stated.

The STX LP transmitter is expected to ship in June and the company said it will likely go to a new Christian station in Africa or the Asian Pacific, according to Jacobson.

Broadcasters also can sign up to try to win one in the company’s Oldest Operating BE Transmitter contest.
