Professional DTV and RF Signal Medical Facility Notification Service
By Experienced Broadcast Engineering Professionals
Welcome to DTV Notification, we are a team of broadcast television engineers and software development professionals that help TV stations notify medical facilities of changes to your station’s RF signals through strategic and geographical research. Our state of the art technology ensures that you get your changes to hospitals, psychiatric hospitals, residential care and skilled nursing care facilities.
Many TV stations are being repacked to new RF channels as part of the FCC’s Incentive Auction and Television Band repacking. The FCC, as a special condition on your station’s construction permit, requires TV stations to notify medical facilities of your station’s new technical parameters in order to avoid any possible interference to medical equipment and telemetry operations.
DTV notifications can provide your station with the appropriate required notification to medical facilities with our simple on-line form. Or, use your Concierge service and let us do all the hard work for you.
DTV Notification does the hard work of finding the appropriate medical facilities, generating and mailing the letters, and we provide you with the needed FCC Public File documentation and License Application Exhibit information as required by the conditions on your station’s FCC Construction Permit.
We utilize state of the art tools and databases to ensure we notify the appropriate medical facilities within your station’s coverage area while also ensuring compliance with the medical facility notification requirements of your Construction Permit.
With over three decades of experience our lead Broadcast Television Engineer, Mr. Dennis Wallace, has executed many RF changes and medical facility notifications for TV stations over the years. You can be assured that your medical notifications are correct and sent in a timely manner.

Dennis Wallace: C.B.T.E.
I am the managing partner of the broadcast technical consulting firm of Meintel, Sgrignoli, & Wallace. Over my 30-year broadcast career I have been extensively involved with the development new broadcast technologies as well as Radio Frequency (RF) propagation and interference matters.
I was involved with the Laboratory RF Testing of the Grand Alliance ATSC HDTV System, while serving as the RF Systems Engineer at the Advanced Television Test Center in Washington, DC.
Prior to joining ATTC, I held positions in Field Operations Engineering, Applications Engineering, and was Product Manager for two Television transmitter manufacturers. Prior to my involvement in the transmitter business, I was employed as the chief engineer for several radio and television stations.
I have authored several papers on the topic of Digital Television transmission and results of testing of the DTV systems which have been published in the IEEE Transactions as well as for other publications.
In 1999, I was awarded the prestigious Matti S. Suikola award by the IEEE Broadcast Technology Society. And, in 2008 I received the Technical Emmy plaque for my work while at the ATTC.
I am a Certified Broadcast Television Engineer (C.B.T.E.) by the Society of Broadcast Engineers. I am also a member of the IEEE Broadcast Technology Society, SMPTE, an Associate member of the Federal Communications Bar Association, and I am active on several industry standards committees including the ATSC.
I have worked in the programming field for 10 years and before that I worked at Northern Arizona University operating the equipment for their Interactive Television classes. I have always loved programming and technology for as long as I can remember. Even in my spare time I can never be separated from my computer.
I have experience in database management, API integration, UI, UX and a long list of programming languages. I have developed Android, iPhone apps and consult for a radio station management software company.
I have practiced web development, ppc and social media management for over 15 years. I currently run an international media communications software company that provides service to over 500 radio stations. Most my time is spent studying user interface best practices and SEO for web development.
I have three young kids that are already starting to code and have built their first applications before the age of 10. I see a bright future for people that embrace web technologies and with information at our finger tips means we are in a for fun rid!
