On November 5th
KBOO’s Engineering Workgroup led by Chief Engineer Tom Hood and Broadcast Contractor Mike Johnson descended upon the KBOO Air Room for some serious maintenance and calibration fun.
It had been years since this kind of in depth maintenance had been performed. This gave us an opportunity to access the overall condition of the air room console modules and other broadcast equipment in the room. Prior to shutting down the air room, the Production 1 studio was outfitted with an Airtools delay to provide an indecency “Dump” button and all audio routing was switched so that Production 1 was now the Air Room. Switching to Production 1 was a smooth transition and inaudible on the air.
