Transmitter Maintenance Checklist

Originally streamed in 2015.


This webinar covers the regular tasks that should be performed at a tower site. While maintenance of the transmitter itself is important, keeping accurate and up-to-date logs and records is paramount to maintaining the entire site. Each site visit should include several regular checks. Some items are checked on each visit, some are checked monthly or quarterly, and some are seasonal.This webinar will provide a thorough overview for engineers who are newer to broadcast engineering, and a good review for the more seasoned engineers.
