Broadcast Electronics Turns 50
March 20, 2009 at 5:14 AM (PT)
BROADCAST ELECTRONICS is inviting broadcasters to share in the celebration of its 50-year anniversary as the industry's largest radio-only equipment manufacturer with opportunities to qualify for a free STX LP solid-state, low-power FM transmitter or AUDIOVAULT FLEX studio automation software.
Broadcasters are invited to enter BE's "Oldest Operating BE Transmitter" contest to qualify for a free transmitter. The oldest operating BE transmitter will qualify broadcasters for a chance to win BE's newest FM solid-state transmitter, the STX LP 1kW. BE is looking for the oldest surviving BE transmitter currently in operation, either operating in standby or as the main transmitter. Qualified candidates can review contest details and submit their applications online at http://www.bdcast.com/contest through JUNE 1st.
Employees and customers who have shared in the journey of this 50-year-old industry icon will get a chance to celebrate BE's half-century mark at the NAB2009 convention in APRIL, as well as at the company's manufacturing plant in QUINCY, IL on JUNE 18th, the official anniversary date of BE's incorporation.
