Ridgeline Broadcast Services, LLC

Television Translator and Low Power TV Services

Dan entered the broadcast industry in 1973 by designing a system for inserting local ads on television translators for the purpose of raising funds when that practice was made legal by the FCC. He later took over maintenance and upgrade duties for many translator systems, taking them through several rounds of FCC mandated changes in channel assignments and many changes in transmitter technology. Dan has taken many translator and LPTV operations into the digital age, transitioning to the new ATSC digital broadcast technology by installing new equipment or modifying old. He maintains test equipment for measuring ATSC transmitter performance and off air reception quality. Clients include independent translator organizations (becoming more rare nowadays), low power television licensees, and full service broadcast stations looking to extend coverage. Dan is a longtime member of the National Translator Association.
