Your last tube? Economic, Maintenance and Migration Considerations for Older Tube Transmitters

Wed, Nov 20, 2019 12:00 PM EDT

Solid-state transmitters today tend to have efficiency specifications that are significantly higher than comparable tube transmitters. Join Jeff Welton as he explores a case study of radio station WCLQ that migrated from tube to solid state. Jeff and special guests, Coy Sawyer (WCLQ General Manager) and Alex Hartman (WCLQ’s Contract Engineer), will talk about power savings, maintenance and related operational costs, as well as on-air confidence levels. This webinar will include tools to help stations decide if getting rid of tubes makes fiscal sense in their situation.

This webinar will run 30 minutes including time for questions.
