SBE Chapter 37 Visits Hubbard’s Wheaton Transmission Site

Group sees WFED(AM) in operation

This Continental 317C transmitter is at Hubbard Radio’s Wheaton, Md., transmission site for Federal News Radio, WFED(AM). The transmitter was installed in 1983. Hubbard also has a Harris DX50 in service at the site that uses the MDCL power-saving feature. The Maryland site also serves as a back-up for WTOP(FM) transmission. Several WTOP and WFED engineers conducted tours of the historic site, including CE Dave Garner, Assistant CE Art Rose and Senior Broadcast Engineer Dave Kolesar. SBE Chapter 37 held its latest meeting at the site last week. Radio One Washington cluster CE Kent Kramer chairs SBE Chapter 37.
