89.3 KPCC-FM Boosts Signal Coverage

PASADENA, Calif., Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Southern California Public Radio (SCPR) station 89.3 KPCC-FM has added a signal booster to improve its coverage of the west side of Los Angeles. Listeners west of the 405 Freeway, including those in Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades, Sawtelle, and Brentwood, should now experience a stronger signal with less static interference from other stations on the same or adjacent radio frequencies.

The project began nearly two years ago in an effort to enhance the 89.3 KPCC-FM listening experience for their west side audience, who live and work in that area.  The signal improvement will also benefit commuters who cross the Sepulveda Pass and travel along Pacific Coast Highway between Santa Monica and Malibu.

The state-of-the-art engineering required to boost the signal was a joint effort of the 89.3 KPCC staff and talent from National Public Radio Labs. Doug Johnson, SCPR vice president operations, noted, "Our engineering staff insists on premium sound quality and continuously strives to make improvements. We expect to apply the advances we gained on the Westside to improve our signal for listeners in other parts of the Los Angeles area."

According to Bill Davis, chief executive officer, "This important project was funded by a gift from members of our Board of Trustees.  As the most listened-to public radio news service in Southern California, we have a responsibility to provide the best possible service to our listeners.  Our board and membership help make this all possible."

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing.
