The Georgia Association of Broadcasters, along with our partners at GEMA, NOAA, and the Governor’s Office, are in the process of rolling out a new EAS system for all broadcasters in the state. Watch for regular updates with regards to monitoring and testing as it effects your stations.
Inaugural Angelo R. Ditti, Jr. Award For Excellence In Broadcast Engineering
GAB created the Angelo R. Ditti, Jr. Award for Excellence In Broadcast Engineering to recognize the achievements and lasting impact of Angelo, who passed away in December 2012. The inaugural recipients of this award were the four engineers who participated directly in creating Georgia’s new EAS Plan along with GAB, GEMA, the FCC, the National Weather Service, and the Governor’s Office.
The Ditti Award was given out following remarks by Georgia Homeland Security Director Charley English at GAB Honors Night 2013, and went to Dick Boekeloo, Robert Butler, Dan Davis, and GAB’s ABIP Engineer Frank McLemore.
Angelo Ditti created the Alternative Broadcast Inspection Program (ABIP) program for GAB. Many of our members remember learning much about the FCC’s expectations of broadcasters as they followed Angelo around their stations. Congratulations to our inaugual “Ditti” winners. We look forward to giving these awards out to deserving broadcast engineers in future years.
