Broadcast Engineering's Forum Terms of Use

Welcome to Broadcast Engineering magazine’s forum! Thanks for joining us. The Broadcast Engineering forum is a place for you, the reader, to connect with other industry professionals as well as our staff and writers to discuss the issues affecting you. Share a unique rebuild experience with your peers, comment on the week’s poll question, swap stories about the race to prepare for the DTV transition, get product advice from specialists or comment on an article from the print issue or Web site. The forum is yours to talk about what’s important to you.

Before you dive into the exciting community ahead, please take a moment to review our Terms of Use. We at Broadcast Engineering would like to remind you that we value a high level of professionalism. Flagrant disrespect and rudeness are not only unprofessional, but are also not conducive to the environment of productive discussion that we are trying to foster.
