The NAB and the SBE are getting together to conduct a satellite workshop Sept. 29–Oct. 2 at the NAB’s headquarters in Washington.
The Satellite Uplink Operators Training Workshop will cover hardware and software for uplink and downlink equipment and practices for both TV and radio professionals. The workshop will utilize a satellite truck along with visiting a teleport ground station.
Sidney Skjei will be the instructor. He “has more than 30 years’ experience in engineering, operating and developing a wide range of hardware and software for satellite communications systems and services and is highly knowledgeable in all major satellite communications operational areas: global, U.S. domestic and military,” the NAB says.
Cost is $1,250 for NAB and SBE members, $1,550 for others.
