Bill has extensive experience in professional mapping and signal propagation software. Outside the office, Bill has assisted in AM and FM field strength measurement programs, performed on-site RFR measurement surveys, and he has visited numerous broadcast studios and transmitter sites around the country in order to provide clients with detailed due diligence reports in connection with prospective station acquisitions.
Bill has successfully filed numerous FCC applications across many of the FCC's electronic filing platforms (CDBS, ULS, myIBFS, ASR, TCNS and CORES). Recently, Bill has undertaken the added responsibility of obtaining and maintaining the Broadcast Auxiliary Service licenses and International Bureau licenses for a major television station licensee.
Upon graduation from the University of Pittsburgh, Bill accepted a position as a staff engineer in the FM Branch of the Federal Communications Commission's Audio Services Division in Washington, D.C. As an FCC staff engineer, Bill took part in the processing and engineering review of the flood of applications for new FM stations from around the country as a result of the then-recently adopted FCC Docket 80-90. During his two years at the FCC, Bill became familiar with FCC rules, policy and precedent and gained experience with the people and the application processing procedures at the FCC.
