MPBN Plans Big Upgrades with $750K USDA Grant
BANGOR - Nearly one-million dollars...the amount of money a statewide television network now has to upgrade their broadcast in rural parts of Maine.
Maine Public Broadcasting Network shared plans for improving their infrastructure with a $750,000 USDA Rural Development grant.  This will include replacing aged analog microwave equipment across the state to provide more reliable coverage.
Middle schoolers and students from NESCOM also attended the presentation...where they learned how the equipment works and what enhancements are being made.
