The Blue Book is WKCR's basic technical manual for programmers and interns. It contains instructions for basic station operations and compliance with FCC regulations. Sections include:
- WKCR's Studio and Control Room Facilities
- The Control Board
- The SAS Router System
- The Transmitter Remote
- The Operating Log
- The Emergency Alert System
There is more equipment at WKCR than what is covered in this book. In addition, many topics in this book assume a passing familiarity with the subject material. This manual is not a comprehensive guide to all possible problems. This manual is intended to be combined with the DOE's training sessions to develop the basic techniques necessary to become a programmer. If you want to know how to do something not included in this book, ask someone.
WKCR's Temporary Antenna at 4 Times Square. Used from August-October 2003, before the completion of the Roof Project.
