Hi Everyone,

Things are definitely different this year. Our thoughts are with the sick and those engineers that are without work or furloughed during this tough time. I don’t think anyone would have predicted this as the start to 2020.

I am seeing awesome collaborations across the board to ensure radio & TV are still delivered to the community. That’s what I think we do best as an engineering family, work together.

Lots of new perspectives are being brought in on how we can run all these radio stations without the studio or away from the studio. The most common solutions are deploying remote codecs and building home studios for talent. Using services like Cleanfeed or Microsoft Teams are being used so big shows can all collaborate. Some are putting in full automation systems in people’s garages.

I want to ask our membership to share their wealth of knowledge or ask questions to help us through this. I can guarantee someone in our community has the answer. I am also curious if anyone has had an issue with access to sites or been stopped for being out in public.

If you would like to share how you and your station are handling remote operations please send me an email at We’ll send a few following emails. I would encourage no bit of information is too small.

Stay safe, follow the CDC guidelines and hope to see you on the mountain real soon,

Matt – SBE47 Chair
