Welcome to my revived website! (Did you follow a link from Social Media and you want to check out that recent story?…..just look in the “RECENT POSTS” box on the right….the links are there!)
I’ll be using this site to relay news and information about the broadcast industry….leaning heavily toward Broadcast Engineering…..You’ll also find a running blog where I’ll sometimes post my thoughts, good, or bad, about our industry!
A little about me:
In case I haven’t had a chance to bore you with my story, I got into the Radio and TV Engineering field in 1978 when I joined the U.S. Navy. A recruiter with a better grasp of my talents than I had, steered me to become a CCTV Technician, which, after a couple of years, led me to broadcast TV and Radio Engineering with a duty station in Sicily. I ended my time in the Navy in Washington, DC.
From there I worked my way through and up in TV Broadcasting. I ended up with over 18 years as a Chief Engineer or Director of Engineering at several stations, two of which were with Hearst.
I joined “the Dark Side” when I left WMUR for Wolf Coach to design and build broadcast ENG and SNG trucks. While trying my hand at self-employment, I was fortunate enough to be asked to do the HD build-out for WBIN-TV in New Hampshire. Not long after that, I accepted a position back here in the DC area.
I’ve also spent a few years as an uplink Engineer/Operator for Dawnbreaker Communications, running a Ku uplink truck that I had the honor of building while at Wolf Coach.
Earlier this year (2015), I found a great new position with Communications Engineering, Inc with the title of Senior Managing Engineer….! This is a great place to work for Engineers….its a company owned and run by Engineers, with a wide variety of larger broadcast and AV Clients.
Ok, enough drivel about me……enjoy the site! Read, comment, even contribute if you care to!
