September Meeting Info

Our next Chapter Meeting will be Tuesday, Sep-

9446 Broadview Road, Broadview Heights, 44147.

Gathering time is 7pm with Meeting about 7:30 and Pro-
gram to follow. Host and Salem-Cleveland Director of

what may be one of the last visits to this site before the
transmitter facility is rebuilt and moved back amongst
the tower array; with this building most likely being
raised within the next year. The site is somewhat rough,
but will afford us a meeting place for the program and
brief tour. SBE Chapter 70 Frequency Coordinator Jim

Baird will give a presentation on Frequency Coordina-
tion issues with regard to spectrum above 600 Mhz. We

may also have open discussion on the upcoming Nation-
al EAS and other topics of interest. It will be a some-
what casual meeting and program, as it is only a week in

advance of the Ohio Broadcast and Multimedia Technol-
ogy Conference hosted by the OAB in Columbus on

September 19.
