Kevin Clayborn has joined RF Specialties of California with the title of sales engineer.
He’ll be based in a new office in the Phoenix area; RF Specialties of California has offices now in San Diego and Las Vegas, and is part of the larger umbrella of RF Specialties affiliates that can be found around the country.
He told RW he started in broadcasting as a chief engineer of KTUC(AM) in 1992 in Tucson, after a 10-year stint in the Air Force as an avionic communications and navigation systems specialist. “As a Comm-Nav troop, I maintained radio and navigation equipment on aircraft and in the shop.” While at KTUC, he helped put an FM on the air, KRKN. He also freelanced; he helped put a station on the air in Buckeye, Ariz., and upgraded the transmitter site for another in Mobile, Ala.
In 1993 he joined CRL as customer service manager, repairing units on the bench and offering advice for setup to station engineers and owners; he was CRL’s first Webmaster. In 2000, when Jay Brentlinger bought the company, Clayborn became CRL product manager, then worldwide TV sales manager and finally in March of 2007 became the North American sales manager.
For RF Specialties of California, he will handle Arizona, most of southern California and southern Nevada.
President Steve Moreen made the announcement.
