TWiRT 141 - Stephen Wilkinson

Stephen Wilkinson is Technical Operations Manager at Hope Media in Sydney, Australia. He joins Chris Tarr, Chris Tobin and me to talk about some real-life engineering challenges – like when Stephen lost his main studio-transmitter link – and all 3 backup links failed, too! And Kirk has a sad story about a big coax that departed its tower, and the replacement coax isn’t working either. Why not? Let’s figure it out.

TWiRT 139 - Steve Church

Did you ever wonder who first took on chance on licensing IOS MPEG-2 Layer III (MP3) from the consortium that invented it?

And who made the very first broadcast studio product that included a DSP chip?

It was Steve Church on both counts.

In this episode you’ll see and hear a story about a humble, fun, and significant inventor, Steve Church.

Steve founded Telos in 1985 as a part-time business that’s grown become the largest radio studio equipment maker in the world. Steve passed away last Friday from complications of brain cancer.
