lawrence-behrAlthough they are a hundred years and a thousand megahertz apart, broadband wireless systems and AM broadcast have a curious and important relationship!

Through this free webinar “AM Radio: Traps & Promises in Broadband Deployment” presented by WCAI and LBA, you will learn about AM transmission, how the AM towers and wireless towers interact, and how they can coexist. Understand how these interactions trigger FCC regulatory consequences for broadband wireless operators, but can also lead to important antenna siting benefits.

This webinar discusses three primary means of enabling AM – wireless coexistence: distance, detuning, and collocation. Participants will learn essentials of siting new wireless towers to avoid prohibited AM station impacts, cost effective remediation of unavoidable impacts, and maintaining life cycle FCC compliance.

Take away important knowledge how wireless antennas can actually be located on “hot” AM towers, resolving compliance problems and gaining rapid access to new and economic tower facilities.

Your presenter will be Lawrence Behr, CEO of the LBA Group, Inc. Lawrence is Chairman of the Wireless Communications Association International AM Subcommittee and has over 50 years of experience spanning the AM and wireless generations. LBA is an experienced provider of AM detuning and AM colocation services.

The seminar is provided by WCAI. Founded in 1988, the Wireless Communications Association International (WCAI) is an international, nonprofit, technology-neutral trade association whose members comprise the entire wireless broadband ecosystem. WCAI represents service providers, equipment manufacturers, application developers and other contributors to the wireless broadband industry.
