The Michigan Association of Broadcasters (MAB) will host a statewide DTV preparedness training October 23, 2008 at 6:00pm at various Michigan National Guard Facilities.
The training will focus on educating people on how to install and operate a digital converter box. Additionally, the training will bring to light the importance antennas play in the digital transition.
The Michigan National Guard has opened its facilities and the use of their interactive video teleconferencing equipment so that each site participating in the training can communicate with multiple other sites. This will allow engineers and DTV experts to answer questions more specifically to one area.
The DTV preparedness training will be open to the public and is free of charge. Doors will open at 5:30pm and a valid photo ID is required to enter. The MAB and the National Guard strongly encourage the public to attend this informative training as well as participate in the question and answer session that will follow.
