We will also cover AM & FM transmission systems including analog and digital transmitters, HD radio, transmission lines and antennas, AM antenna systems, proper grounding at transmitter sites, plus the care & feeding of all the above.  An overview of current FCC rules and regulations that you should be aware of and what to do when the FCC or alternative broadcast inspector comes knocking on your door will be included.
