    My Father was there representing the WB. He is Chief of engineering for the WB in Tucson AZ and Tulsa Ok and some other stations also. Its pretty cool. He has been into radio-electronics since he was 14. I get all my CB's and ham rigs tweaked for free. I also still have the 2 meter amp me and him built when I was 17. I went one year with him in the early 90's when the HDTV thing was still very young and highly talked about. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I've wanted to go for years.

    Hey Paul, I know a bunch of guys like your dad. I was going to go into broadcast engineering, but sidetracked into computers instead...

    Well he doesn't sell anything. He is in charge of the people behind the scenes that keep the station on the air, and can't stop working hands on with repairing stuff either ( workaholic ). Anyway his staion is here : KWBA TV

    If you are looking for trucks try this Core Digital (formerly SWTV)
    They build TV trucks and rent them out. I did a lot of the cabling on their Bat Masterson truck in the summer of 98 when I was between jobs. I ended up going into Appliances and never pursued the TV thing /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
