FCC Honors Gabrysch With Excellence in Engineering Award

He developed tools for analyzing interference on the AM band

The Federal Communications Commission has announced the winners of the agency’s Excellence in Engineering Award, as well as its Excellence in Economic Analysis Award.

John Gabrysch of the FCC Media Bureau has won the 2023 Excellence in Engineering award “for his outstanding work in developing innovative tools and methodologies for analyzing interference in the AM radio service,” according to an FCC press release.

The FCC said its engineering award recognizes commission staff who have made outstanding engineering, scientific or technical contributions. The commission said Gabrysch’s efforts have had a “significant impact” on its decision-making process for licensing AM radio stations.

“His work will allow the commission to work more efficiently and will benefit the radio industry by accelerating the approval of AM filings and ensure AM stations provide the best service to their listeners,” it stated.

Additionally, Lester Roberts of the FCC Office of Economics and Analytics has won the 2023 Excellence in Economic Analysis Award for efforts to make the Emergency Alert System more resilient.
