Stardraw.com Releases Stardraw Control 2010

Clear Channel Rochester Moves 

A studio move sounds simple, but because the city was reimbursing Clear Channel for the move, the city had to review the bids.

WILQ rebuilds transmitter site

In our current economy, planning and executing a major project is becoming increasingly difficult. We must find new and clever ways to build and improve our facilities.

WCFB rebuilds after a tornado 

A borderline F3/F4 tornado had cut a path across WCFB's transmitter property, directly hitting the building and 1,500' tower, bringing it to the ground. The building and everything in it was a total loss and it was going to be a long recovery process.

New Hampshire Public Radio

WGBH: Green in Boston 

WGBH's new Brighton complex is officially green, with LEED certification granted by the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program. The green designation features construction from recycled steel, motion-sensitive office lighting, UV-filtering glass and motorized sunshades, water-conserving features, solar panels generating 100kW of power and a "green roof."

Choosing a small wind turbine for your station 

If you look closely at most power consumers you will find the majority use power with less-than-ideal efficiency; that is likely because over the last 100 years or more electric power has been easy to come by and, for the most part, cheap. There has been little if any economic incentive to maximize the efficiency of electrical usage.

Locked Up 

Padlocks and gates no longer deter a thief. Either thieves are getting bolder (maybe desperate) or we have not yet done our job, or both.

Bullet-proof facilities 

As part of the group charged with the responsibility of maintaining a broadcast facility, engineers have the added responsibility to ensure the stations continue operating through all types of emergencies.

The World's First 

As the vision of Mixon Hall was being realized, CIM recognized the necessity of having a recording, production and broadcast studio, utilizing state-of-the-art technology, to match Mixon Hall and its many gifted performers.

Reviving NASCAR Radio 

By 2006, PRN needed additional studio space. At first, the plan was to move into an existing office space, utilizing as much of the original structure as possible. As the project progressed, it became clear the existing space was going to need a good bit of work
