BABES/SBE LUNCHEON ON WEDNESDAY
Nov 25TH As usual our luncheon will be at Sinbad's. Sinbad's is just south of the
Ferry Building on the Embarcadero near the foot of Mission Street. Please

tables and chairs. We meet at 11:30 and are seated at 12:30.
This month our program quest will be Kathleen Imhoff speaking about the Contra Costa C.A.E.R. system that covers refinery row in the east bay. Many of us have EAS units provided by CAER.

The power splitting tees to divide power between each pair of 4 bay sections are being installed and it is expected that someone will be on the air before Thanksgiving.
The design permits the 10 Sutro stations to share 4 antennas. The combiners aren't on site. When they arrive, we will have to shut down so they can be installed.
Because of the NABET lockout, a sanitized gate was established at Sutro so that work could go on at the other stations. The electricians and plumbers won't work in the mouse room.
At KRON we have something of a history-maker in our transmitter room. It's the driver that was recently demonstrated on-air at the Canadian Association of Broadcasters show in Vancouver.
We're waiting for a filter from Dielectric before we go on the air with that unit driving our IOT.
KTVU has their NDS encoder at the transmitter so they will be on the air any day now.
TFT claims they are Y2K EAS good guys. (Now if I can just get mine to stop telling me no test has run the past week when one has run.) Sage admits to an erroneous year display with some versions of software but they will be glad to sell you an update.
Starting Sept 1st , Echostar (aka DISH network) started carrying the Fox, NBC, CBS, and ABC affiliates in 20 markets including San Francisco. There is a bill pending in Congress to legitimize that service.
I've received several requests from business sites, such as hotels, for a waiver. There is no provision for granting such a waiver under the Satellite Home Viewing Act. The people marketing DSS services to commercial sights don't seem to be aware of that.
Anyone need a TRS-80 with 48K of memory? I'll throw in the cassette recorder for loading the software.
