You are invited to our June SBE Chapter 56 Meeting on Wednesday June 23rd! 


“C-Band Satellite Repack Demystified”

You are invited to participate in the next SBE Chapter 56 meeting on  Wednesday, June 23 at 12:00 Noon.  The meeting will be virtual using the Zoom Conference Application.  The presentation will be hosted by Doug Watson with LinkUp Communications.


The C-band auction is in full-swing but it’s surprising how much there is to know as a downlink manager. For example, did you know that TV stations in some markets need to change filters twice in the coming three years? Did you know most radio stations can install a “blue” filter now?

Doug Watson of LinkUp unwraps all this in a Zoom presentation Wednesday, June 23, at 12:00 noon.

Doug joined LinkUp Communications last year as a technical sales engineer. LinkUp is doing a lot of the field work of upgrading dishes with new filters and related services.

SBE members, guests and other interested industry professionals are invited to attend.

We hope you can join us!
