B16 - BROADCAST TUTORIAL: BUILDING A RADIO FACILITY IN THE DEVELOPING WORLD
"You can’t find a 10/32 rack screw in Mchinji province in Central Malawi to save your life! I know – I spent a whole afternoon trying!"
As founder of the African Broadcast Alliance, speaker Daniel Braverman recounts his personal experiences building radio stations in the Developing Countries of Central Africa and why 30 years of building stations in the US was only an apprenticeship for the rigors of working in Africa. "It’s the most challenging, frustrating, and fulfilling broadcast assignment you’ll ever take on".
"Oh, and a 4.5 mm screw will substitute for a 10/32 in a pinch." He’ll share that tip and a few more along with great pictures, advice and recommendations on how anyone can get involved with building stations that serve a higher goal.
