Bob and Tom make big plans 

Ten years and more than 150 affiliates later, we look at the next generation Bob and Tom Show studio. It's brand new and immense, but no one has the guts to say it will be big enough.

Trends in Test Equipment 

If you had the opportunity to equip yourself anew for the year, which pieces of equipment would make your core list?

Short on time 

Cumulus' new nine-studio location was to be built in four months. While this sounds like a reasonable amount of time, it's important to know that the building itself would not be built for another month.

The one element of an air studio that makes everything work together is often the most overlooked.

The engineering team had to overcome several obstacles, including the physical location, as well as challenges from the site owner and the local telephone company.

Proving Performance: Test and measurement 

While the basic skills of evaluating system performance are still in place, the tools and the methods used today are changing significantly. Digital signals require analog tools, but you can't neglect the analog elements either.

Connections 

The lines between audio and data are blurred further every day. Recent technology and product introductions take this even further.

The Silent Partner Wire & Cable 

While wire is a passive component in an installation, the wrong choice can introduce signal losses between the source and destination, as well as introduce possible interference from external noise. The result is lost data and excessive installation time.
