Project Details

With the increasing popularity of television streaming, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) sold the television frequencies known as a broadcast spectrum to cellular companies which forced all TV stations to change broadcast frequencies while also transitioning from analog transmitters to digital. Making this transition was no easy task – the existing transmitter had to remain operational while construction was on-going. In order to maintain a safe working environment, BEAR built clean rooms, sealed from dust and moved them as construction moved through the space. With precision construction and meticulous TV engineering, the millions of viewers of NBC never noticed the spectrum switch which only took the station off air briefly during one overnight.
