San Joaquin Valley EAS Plan Update Approved

December 15, 2018

eas-itemThe updated/revised plan for the San Joaquin Valley (SJV) Local Area EAS plan has been approved by the State of California. KMJ-AM ran its final RMT on December 25th at 4:00 AM.  KMJ will no longer be initiating the bi-monthly RMT. KVPR-FM will be taking over the responsibilities.  Stations will need to update their receiving equipment to monitor KVPR 89.3 FM. The NWS will continue the odd-month RWTs. KMJ retains the LP-1 station designation. KVPR-FM (89.3) is the LP-2. Copies of the Revised SJV EAS Local Plan will be available at the upcoming SBE meeting on Thursday December 27th.

Meadow Lakes BBQ/Picnic and Transmitter Tour

September 10, 2018

Saturday September 15, 2018  12:00pm – 3:00pm

                Meadow Lakes Picnic Area 

Time again for the fun-filled, good time guaranteed, SBE 66 Meadow Lakes BBQ
img_1680-3Where this guy with the straw hat (see photo to the right) will once again perform his Big-Barrel BBQ magic on various flavors of mouth-watering Tri-Tip for your Saturday Lunch-time enjoyment. 



Now of course, THIS GUY (see photo below) will be on hand to help out in his own ‘special’ way. We’re all familiar with the consequences of that.  (see same photo below-closer look).img_1679





So, that’s where all of you (see photo below) shiny, happy, picnickers can help–by taking the short drive up to the Meadow Lakes picnic area Saturday, September 15th. Remember, this is an SBE66 family-and-friends event, so be sure to bring a friend, relative and/or the family pet. As always, SBE will provide the Tri-Tip BBQ, table settings and refreshments. But we still need your help. This is a pot-luck event. Attendees whose last names end in A-K should bring dessert items. Names ending in L-Z should bring salad/side dishes. Remember, It’s OK to break the rules if you have a special dessert or side dish you want to bring. Ice for the drinks is always welcome. The festivities officially start at noon, but help setting up the tables is always appreciated if you can arrive earlier. We’ll also figure out how to throw in an official SBE66 meeting (short) somewhere along the way.

After you can eat and drink no more, join the caravan for a quick tour of your favorite Central Valley broadcast transmitter facilities

We hope you can help out so that this guy (see photo above) will have time to relax and do what he does best.
See You at Meadow Lakes
