The SBE, in conjunction with Cris Alexander, CPBE, AMD, DRB, is pleased to present “AM Directional Antenna Modeling” on May 10.
With the advent of FCC-permitted AM directional antenna performance verification using moment-method computer modeling, broadcast engineers now have a new and powerful tool at their disposal. Qualifying arrays can be modeled and adjusted to the calibrated model parameters in lieu of all the labor, time and uncertainty of adjusting and proofing them using the old cut-and-try method employing field intensity measurements. This webinar will provide a detailed overview of the modeling process, including base impedance matrix and sample system calibration measurements, model construction / calibration and derivation of operating parameters from the calibrated model. The FCC requirements for moment-method license applications will also be discussed. Continue reading
