Engineer's Log of Mark W. Persons
HD Radio Class at Harris Broadcast in Quincy, IL.

February 2008:  Quite a crew of Radio Broadcast Engineers from the U. S. and around the world.  It was four days of high-intensity training to get qualified to install HD (High Definition) digital on existing radio stations.  My thanks to Harris , now Gates Air, for putting on this extremely informative and valuable class. 
This is your intrepid engineer, Mark Persons, smiling in front of a Harris HD FM Transmitter. 

Look at the ease of diagnosing and repairing this high-tech box. 

In the HD AM testing lab inspecting connections to a Harris DX-10 AM Transmitter and a Harris DAX-1 AM transmitter.
Speaking of AM, Mark sizing up a coil and capacitor that will go in a 50 kilowatt AM directional antenna system. 

Harris, now Gates Air, is one of the largest broadcast transmitter manufacturer in the world.   

The stories go on and on.  Stop in again sometime.  I'll leave the soldering iron on for you.
