Engineer's Log of Mark W. Persons
Television Interview

(photo from the January 26th TWIRT interview)

Wednesday, March 23, 2011:  Mark was interviewed on TWiT.TV (This Week in Tech).  It is an Internet television channel for technology people.  TWiT normally focuses on computer and similar gadgets.  The session was actually on the TWiRT (This Week in Radio Tech) program, which is run by well-known radio engineer Kirk Harnack and is aired on TWIT.TV Wednesdays between 7 PM and 8 PM Central time.

On this episode, the moderators were Kirk Harnack from Telos Systems, Chris Tobin from CBS Radio, and Chris Tarr who is a broadcast engineer in Wisconsin.  Mark talked about the 1960's vintage microphone that he used on the show, about being surrounded by cows at a transmitter site and about how his wife Paula is an equal partner in their business.  There were about 1000 viewers at the time.

Recorded video is not available, but an audio-only podcast version is available for download at http://thisweekinradiotech.squarespace.com/twirt-home/2011/3/27/twirt-75-ice-downs-tower.html
