Nautel Ramps Up NUG@NAB Event for 50th Anniversary

Annual Radio Technology Forum, labeled “Must Attend” by 300+ participants, to feature “Future of AM” panel and multiple prizes.

Hackett’s Cove, Nova Scotia– Registration is open for Nautel’s NUG@NAB Radio Technology Forum, which is promising to be the biggest Nautel meeting ever. This fast-paced event, which will be held Sunday, April 7 at the Flamingo Las Vegas, will feature a panel presentation on the “Future of AM”, a session on how to set up streaming, Nautel’s highly popular “Tips ‘n Tricks”, a presentation on “What not to miss at NAB” from Radio World’s Paul McLane and more. To commemorate Nautel’s 50th anniversary, 50 prizes will be awarded during the event.

The NUG@NAB meeting will run from 9:00 to 12:30, followed by a complimentary hot lunch for attendees. This “must attend” rated event is being presented at no charge and anyone interested in broadcast transmission technologies is welcome to attend. Seating is limited; pre-registration is required.

“Our annual event has expanded to be much more than a User Group meeting,” said Kevin Rodgers, Nautel President and CEO. “In recent years we have had well over 300 broadcasters in attendance, and our early registration numbers for this year suggest that this year may be the largest yet. A key factor that makes NUG@NAB valuable is our decidedly non-sales approach that focuses on transmission technology and best practices in installing and maintaining transmitter sites.”

New for this year’s event is a panel discussion on the Future of AM. Guests include Mike Cooney, CTO and EVP of Engineering, Beasley Media Group; Martin Stabbert, VP of Engineering, Townsquare Media and chair of the NRSC AM & FM Analog Broadcasting Subcommittee; Mike Raide, Senior Manager, Broadcast Technology at Xperi and David Kolesar, Senior Broadcast Engineer, Hubbard Radio (Washington, DC). Nautel’s Ted Nahil will host the panel.

Nautel Regional Sales Manager – Central US Jeff Welton, will host the NUG@NAB Radio Technology Forum. Welton recently received an SBE Educator of the Year award and was just named the Engineering Achievement Award Recipient for 2019 by the Association of Public Radio Engineers. “With this being Nautel’s 50th anniversary, we are looking not only at the past 50 years of broadcast transmission but what’s ahead for the industry in the future,” said Welton. “This year’s meeting brings our long-term Nautel users together with others interested in broadcast transmission to discuss challenges, best practices and technology trends. Anyone with a passion for Radio transmission is welcome to join us.”
