DcSoundOp Shoptalk: RF Spectrum Repack Explained With James Stoffo

A quick and easy to understand breakdown of where we are, where we've come from and most importantly, where we're going next.

In this video, we are talking RF tech with James Stoffo. As an industry leader, educator and one of the most in demand RF coordination technicians in the business, he has done it all. Working tirelessly at the forefront of wireless technology since the early 1990’s, his work has played a large part in getting us to where we are today. Large channel count shows and mission critical RF in demanding production environments are his specialty.

In recent years, he has been equally busy lecturing and giving talks on the topic. His work to clarify the effects of the sale of RF spectrum to private corporations is ongoing. With the recent 700MHz auction coming to a close, the resulting repack of the spectrum to accommodate both existing digital television and newly energized cellular networks can be confusing at best.
