Even if you�re reading this in mid-March, you still have time to put together a plan to go to the spring NAB Show. I know some readers probably need a certain amount of convincing, so this month we�ve included a short primer on how to go to and then enjoy the convention, in addition to a preview of some products you�ll see on the exhibit floor. If you haven�t been, you really need to head to Las Vegas.
The spring show takes center stage here, but there are plenty of good reads on other subjects in this issue.
Seattle�s KEXP recently finished a fantastic new facility build, and we�re covering it for you in great detail this month. As clich� as it may sound, I really believe this is the facility of the future.
Jeremy Ruck returns with an article on maintenance of AM antenna systems � this time around, he considers the directional antenna.
Lee Petro explains the particulars of recent rule changes pertaining to public files; and, we have an article on using AoIP codecs, not for remotes, but for nailed up, permanent connections (ready for an all-AoIP STL yet?).
Is the transmitter site a place you want to escape from, or is it your sanctuary? The Wandering Engineer discusses the nuances of the two site types you will encounter. Sign Off may be in the back, but feel free to read it first.
I hope to see you at the NAB Show. Say �hi� if you see me on the floor!
