Frontier Academy Dallas: Effective Communication
Event on 2017-10-17 09:00:00
Effective communication is a hallmark of all successful businesses.  However, many of us aren’t comfortable (or confident) in our ability to communicate because we never learned the basics or we’re fearful of the backlash that we perceive will come from speaking up. Others of us may think our way of communicating works just fine, unaware our skills could be improved.   This workshop is designed to give you a crash course in communicating using all mediums available, choosing the right medium for the right message, and connecting with and motivating your audience. We also help you with some of the trickier forms of communication, like offering accurate feedback, listening to and diffusing conflict, and getting buy-in. Ideal participants: Managers who want to have a greater impact in communicating with their team, organization, and stakeholders.  — We understand that circumstances change, but for planning purposes Frontier Academy requires 48 hours notice if you need to cancel, or reschedule, in order to receive a full refund, otherwise you will be charged the workshop’s full amount. You may send someone in your place, but we ask that you do give us notice that you are doing so. Thank you for your understanding!

radio communication system design for a broadcasting company?

Question by Omax: radio communication system design for a broadcasting company?
In order to design a radio communication system for a broadcasting company which rf signal and propagation mode i can choose? Which modulation technique and transmitter will be appropriate for that? And lastly how do i draw the complete diagram of my designed system.
A case study of a company would be good.
A case study of a radio broadcasting company would be good.

Best answer:

Answer by Ecko
I am a bit confused over the mix of terms, a radio communication system, but for a broadcasting company. Would that be a communication system the company uses internally, or is it a communication company, or is it meant to be the actual broadcasting system? I cannot see what the context is, what sort of system you are talking about.

Before designing a system some specifications are needed, which are about the eventual quality:
1) Bandwidth – range of frequencies to communicate.
2) Direction – one way, both ways, simultaneous, or one direction at a time.
3) Signal to noise. Average and worst case noise levels due to received signal power.
4) Operational reliability. All the time, 99% of the time, whatever is available.
5) Distance.
6) Type of service, information type. Data, voice, sound program material, stereo etc., TV link.
7) Connected to? Telephone line, one channel or many, TV link, computer, hand microphone? Maybe it is a program line to carry program material to the broadcast transmitter? Maybe it is a broadcast transmitter, radio or TV not a communications system.

With that information the system design can start.

Propagation..
Most systems will use line of sight communication for reliability. With suitable sites this is unlikely to be more than 40km without repeaters.
A medium wave broadcast transmitter will be intended for ground wave communication, maybe 50-200km.
A HF transmitter will need different frequency and propagation modes at different times. Communication can be regional, national, global with suitable equipment, but is mostly no longer used as other systems take over.

Other considerations concern fading, reliability and distortion, due to multi-path signals.

Modulation
This could be AM for local to regional broadcasts, FM for higher quality local broadcasts, SSB etc for HF communication. Line of site links tend to be FM or digital.

Transmitter power is determined by the range, antenna design, signal to noise, reliability against interference and fading. The antenna is an important part of the system, in both transmitters and receivers.

Most of the traditional radio broadcasting and communication, including medium wave AM, all kinds of HF, and even FM broadcasting and communication is becoming, or already is, obsolete as digital radio systems take over slowly but surely, in broadcasting and communications.

Radio Broadcasting and TV Broadcasting Enable Distant Communication

Radio Broadcasting and TV Broadcasting Enable Distant Communication

TV broadcasting has proven to be the most efficient socializing tool as it enables quick and effective transmission of news and other information. Television has led towards enhancement in communication and also other developments in the broadcast industry. One major example of such developments is DTH technology.

 

Apart from the DTH technology, satellite teleport services are another application that proves the development in broadcasting industry. It is a kind of regional telecommunication that enables the access to satellites and other far distant communication areas. It comprises various broadcasting facilities and functions with the help of a satellite. It helps in raising programs to the satellite, enhancing capacity for work of the satellite channel and receiving the signals from the satellite. Teleport services are vital for the broadcasting system and the process of working in broadcasting is inefficient without teleport services.

Some features of these teleport services are: Digital signal compression,  High Definition Television (HDTV) Transmission Service Satellite News Gathering Mobile signal transmission service, Uplink and Downlink Conditional Access, , Satellite Turnaround Signal collection from one satellite transmitting to another satellite and the Studio and Tape Play Facilities. These services give a proper flow of brilliant quality communication signals between the revolutionary satellites.
Radio broadcasting is referred to the process of using a radio technology. Today there are a number of radio stations all over the world broadcasting by the means of transmission. The broadcasting process is not complicated as all the equipments essential are easily available but with new ideas coming up every day, new requirements  rise with new criteria of transmission like Dab Digital Radio and DRM.

In densely populated areas VHF FM is commonly used. Its bandwidth enables it to broadcast high quality transmission stereo and services like RDS. Radio broadcasting is an audio form of communication and using radio waves, an electro magnetic radiation to broadcast from a transmitter to a receiving antenna. In order to transmit the same kind of programming, stations are connected to all the radio networks. However in this internet age, internet distributed radio, has made radio broadcasting bit out of space. Yet there are stations that broadcast on shortwave bandwidth using AM technology reaching good distances.  Bad weather conditions can affect radio broadcasting.

In 1990’s when dish was not in very much use being costly and demanding space, Satellite TV broadcasting was brought into existence. Satellite TV broadcasting is provided by the means of communication satellites and received by a satellite dish or you can call it a set-top box. It offers variety of channels and services to all regions that are not serviced by cable providers.

Two-way Radio’s Contribution to Communication

“Mobile phones make a huge impact on every personâ??s life. Itâ??s no longer a luxury but a necessity because it comes in handy. Before coming to be though, it was the two-way radio with two way radio headset which the world knew. Two-way radio communication influences a lot of people in many ways. The two-way radio is usually found and used inside official vehicles like cabs, police cars, ambulances, even for motorcycle communication. As to the worldâ??s most famous two-way radio brand, Motorolaâ??s two-way radio comes to mind.

Mobile phones originally served the purpose of a two-way radio, which is also called mobile rigs but technically speaking, a two-way radio is not considered a mobile phone since it is not connected to any telecommunications network. Mobile phones have gradually evolved into transportable gadgets identified as bag phones, for they could be carried and used either as mobile or portable two-way radio. The first mobile telephones were called â??first generation telephonesâ? or 1G. The 1G era ran from the late seventies through the eighties. 1G pioneered mobile telephones albeit being called cellular mobile radiophones for they rely on analog signals. Analog signal is the main difference between the first generation mobile telephones and second generation mobile telephones.

The second generation mobile phones were introduced in the market in the early nineties. Unlike the analog 1G phones, 2G phones use digital technology to provide voice services, short message service (SMS) and WAP. The 2G mobile phone is more advantageous than 1G because it uses lower radio signals that require lesser battery power, thus allowing it to perform longer between battery charging. Whatâ??s more is that 2G phones can come in a tinier and slimmer package, even its batteries! In line with this, 2G phones offer more privacy and makes eavesdropping less possible unlike with 1G phones. After the success of 2G mobile phones, the 2.5G was introduced but only to marketing bosses. It was called as such because it is described as a post-2G, but not on a certain extent as 3G. As 2G and 2.5G phones were introduced, the two-way radio with headset was still predominantly used by motorists.

Later came the 3G phones, which was first launched by the Japan company, NTT DoCoMo, in May 2001 and was launched commercially in the same country in October 2001. The 3G phones allowed network operators like Vodafone and T-Mobile to offer their consumers a wider range of advanced services. These comprise video calls, broadband internet, and the like. Despite this new technology, the -way radio communication was still much favored by motorists, especially those working in public offices.

Because of todayâ??s fast-paced technology, 4G phones arrived and introduced in the market positively new features like live streaming of television and radio shows.

As technology continues to evolve and with people clamoring for new models of mobile phones every time, expect stuff like Motorola radioâ??s two- way to constantly update its features to provide the ever-changing demands and needs of the public.

Two Way Radios ? Paired-up Communication

Alternatively being called as walkie-talkies and even dispatch radios, two way radios are hand held mobile communication devices, which evolved out of the radio transmitters and receivers used by naval and army units in the early 20th century. As the world moved ahead in style and things progressed in every areas, the bulky radio equipments gave way to small and effective portable communication devices.

Coming out of the closet, these communication devices have gone through some pretty commendable research and development processes. Two way radios can be classified into various categories based on their abilities and the features they contain. But, mostly these wireless communication devices differ on the basis of their radio signal channels.

American telecommunications legend Motorola has attained phenomenal success in the field of two way radios courtesy of a wide variety of these hand held devices. Some of the radios even had push to talk buttons to get connected right away. With their efficiency and accessibility, these devices can actually sound as better options than mobile phones in some instances.

Two way radios of the present times have improvised much on their abilities as more and more manufacturers have applied their technology to capitalise on the rising popularity of these devices. The obsolete two way radios worked on the ordinary simplex mode, which simply allowed transmission of signals by a station as the frequency was used by all the users. This moved on to the full duplex mode, which allowed transmission and reception at the same time.

Two Way Radio Joins The Communication Party

Whatever industry you work in, talk of communication or more importantly a lack of communication is never far away from the mouths of management and workers. This article looks at how modern Two Way Radio is being used to enhance communication at work.

Communication takes many forms from face to face to more advanced methods like modern mobile and cell phone technology. The key to successful communication within many businesses is having a good mix of communication methods including team briefings and meetings, emails, teleconferencing and more.

So with the need for businesses to find the best methods of communication for their company Two Way Radios are now being used to further enhance their communication mix. 2 Way Radio gives business a reliable, robust and portable way for their staff to stay in touch in many different circumstances. These radios can be used over a wide area and benefit from no call charges which often makes them far more appealing than other portable communication equipment like mobile or cell phones.

And because Two Way Radios like the Kenwood TK3201 and Motorola XTN446 are affordable, businesses of all types can benefit from using them. Some examples include security staff at licensed premises or sporting venues being able to keep in touch and alert colleagues to disturbances, queues and potential problems. They therefore aid not just communication but health and safety as well. Schools, colleges, nurseries and universities are also using 2 Way Radios for various members of staff to stay in touch. Teachers on field trips, caretakers, ground workers and teaching assistants whilst organizing sporting events can all now take advantage of the benefits that portable radios can bring. With features including long battery lives, panic alarms and license free communication.

Other businesses where the use of Two Way Radio has greatly enhanced their performance and ability to stay in touch include factories and retailers. The retail sector in particular find the radio technology extremely useful as it allows workers on the shop floor to easily communicate with the distribution team to check stock levels, deliveries and again as in other industries to report accidents and therefore enhance their health and safety practices. The retail sector like many others is now extremely competitive so shops and retail outlets who want to enhance the service they provide customers can use two way radios to further differentiate them from their competitors.

Picture the scenario, you go into a shop and ask a member of staff if they have a particular item in stock. The member of staff disappears what seems like forever only to return with the news that the item is or is not in stock. Compare this to another retailer whose staff carry 2 way radios. You approach them and ask if an item is in stock. They immediately connect the stock room using their 2 way radio and within seconds you find out if the item you are after is available. This is just one of the ways that the retail industry is using two way radio but there are many others.

Communication in the business world is vital and modern 2 way radio can now be used by businesses of all types to make sure their staff and customers benefit.

How Two Way Radio Communication is Helping Businesses Gain a Competitive Advantage

Two different companies sell the same products or provides the same service and yet one if much more successful than the other. This scenario is common place in the world of business but what makes one company out perform their competitors when they both provide the same goods or service?


There are likely to be a few answers to this question including they work harder, they out market their competitors and now as spring 2008 approaches, they could embrace technology so to streamline their processes and communications. It is on the communications side in particular why businesses in many industries are now turning to 2 way radios to stand out from the competition.


Two Way Radios are being used by schools, shops, businesses in the leisure industry and factories to speed up the way in which their workforce communicate as well as ensuring their business and premises are as safe as possible for staff and customers.


In the case of schools, regulators like OFSTED often commend schools who provide the safest possible environment for pupils and teachers and 2 way radio is therefore often used by schools to do just this. And as the success of schools is often measured on their performance and safety, many learning establishments are finding that by using a fail safe communication method like two way radio, they can stand out from other nearby schools.


Likewise, for factories, radio communications are being used to communicate over a wide area which saves time and money. Two way radios in factories are also being used as a way to report accidents which for a compliance and health and safety system are highly effective.


Retailers and shops are using 2 way radio to monitor and control stock levels in a fast and highly effective way as well as a system for preventing and reducing shop lifting and other crime that would otherwise affect their reputation and profits.


Two way radios are robust, portable and give businesses of all types a superb way in which to stay in touch, improve their performance and ultimately increase their profits.


If you are business owner or someone responsible for your companies communications or health and safety then 2 way radio is now available that will give you a low cost and highly viable solution to your needs. Modern cell phone technology is of course also available but often suffers from high costs and problems due to the lack of network coverage. 2 way radios with long life batteries suffer from no such problems and therefore if you want your business to flourish in 2008 and beyond, you may want to consider two way radios.
