March Luncheon Report

The March 2011 Chapter 16 luncheon was doubly informative this month with two presentations.  The first presentation was given by Chapter 16’s own Waveguide Editor, Jim Dalke.  His presentation, concerning FCC inspections, is the same one that he will provide for the NAB crowd this year.  Jim described what an FCC inspector will be looking for when a station is inspected.  Great tips were given for areas that could leave a station vulnerable to severe penalties and fines if there is no compliance.  The second presentation was a live webinar, part of the NASBA and NAB series, which is tackling the education of the new EAS CAP system.  The presentation consisted of three speakers from around the country, with the first featuring Washington State’s own Don Miller.  Michigan and Maine were also represented and each speaker described how they are handling the implementation of the new system.
