    Yes quite...

    "Receiver Capital Projects Dept"

    Not quite required for a broadcaster;-)...

    SCPD was disbanded around 1990. A few of the engineers moved to the user
    departments as project engineers. Those user departments are part of BBC
    Resources which is in the process of being sold off. Those involved in IT
    work did end up with Siemens.


    Two stage merger; DD moved (from central London) into part of ED's building
    and it all became D&E D, then the &E got dropped, then DD & RD merged.
    EID merged with Viewer & Listener Correspondence to become Viewer &
    Listener Information. Someone on high saw the word "Information" and a
    further merger with Libraries took place.

    (Capital I, please, EID.)

    not when it was a BBC Receiver ;-(

    Actually there used to be a part of Equipment Department called "Receiver
    Section". It looked after all the sets in senior managements houses. One
    of my EID colleagues moved to be head of section in the late 70s.

    Radio Capital Projects Department

    All renamed from X P&ID = X Planning and Installation Department.

    illfated C control from Swains Lane

    I don't think so. There was a Radio Projects department, not part of
    Engineering Division but part of the Radio Directorate, which wrote the
    technical specifications for radio projects which were then issued as
    Radio Requirements to the appropriate Capital Projects department for
    costing and, if approved, implementation. One that sticks in my mind was
    'RR153: Radio Contribution Network', which landed on my desk and stayed
    there for about three years while Radio Projects dithered about whether
    or not they really wanted it because local radio was being sorted out.

    really. SCP&ID became Studio Capital Projects. Sound Sources was one of
    the units. Once SCPD was disbanded, some of those people became Radio
    Capital Projects.
    As did SCPD for TV OBs.

    Ah, apologies to Mike. That was after my time.
     

  9. I remember a politician asked about the BBC in parliament as he was suffering
    poor reception due to a what he thought was a fault at the local TV relay
    and he had complained to the BBC and nothing happened.

    The next day some senior managers found out and everybody was duly told off,
    and within no time at all, a bunch of senior engineers from every section
    involved was sent to deal with problem.


    The after effect even had the IBA visiting the relay to check its equipment.


    I wonder what would happen today?

    As I remember it, and my seventy year old brain now finds it
    increasingly difficult, when I joined P&ID in August 1963 it was
    Planning and Installation Department. The next title was Studio Planning
    and Installation Department (StuPID) which was very quickly changed to
    Studio Capital Projects Department (SCPD). I moved to BBC Scotland in
    January 1982 and lost track after that.

    There was a Sound Section made up of Sound Sources Unit and Sound
    Distribution Unit, in which I worked. When it was decided that sound and
    vision Engineers were interchangeable these two units metamorphosed into
    Broadcast Systems Unit A, of which I was head when I left, and Broadcast
    Systems Unit B.

    Sound Distribution Unit was called LF and General Unit when I joined in
    '63. What then was the name of the section and the other unit?

    And presumably also UHF.
    keep the local modulatiors 30Mhz or more away from any TV signals and
    try to get the signal strengths into the same ballpark.

    Austar was doing about that many channels with consumer grade
    modulatiion equipment. Typical hotel install: 6-12 satellite
    decoders mixed in with local UHF TV.

    Bye.
