On June 14, the MAB held a workshop for prospective Alternate Broadcast Inspection Program inspectors, as well as for station engineers who were interested in the process.
The workshop was conducted by Dennis Baldridge, an SBE certified broadcast engineer who has been a contract engineer, consultant, and ABIP inspector since the 1980s.
Over the course of the day, the first half of the workshop was held at a local hotel meeting room. Following lunch, Baldridge and the attendees moved to the studios of WKAR-TV in East Lansing to begin an actual inspection. Following the studio visit, attendees then went to the WKAR transmitter site.
Our thanks to Gary Blievernicht of WKAR for allowing the MAB to conduct an ABIP inspection of his facility for this workshop.
