I worked with one NASA atmospheric modeling system which one of the guys in our office didn't believe the answers it was giving. The model had been around for many years and used by many. I investigated and found a unit mismatch where one place was expecting watts/steradian and the other watts/degree. Fixed it and the answers were much more reasonable. I worked with another model produced by…

Network Knowledge sells farm land from Macomb transmitting site

2 years, 10 months ago by Bob Gough

Two years ago, the corporation sold its WQEC transmitting tower in Fowler

Network Knowledge, parent company of WSEC/WQEC, is selling more land as part of its ongoing strategy to restructure debt, in part by selling assets deemed non-essential to providing their programming.

“Our primary goal is to deliver quality programming,” said Dr. Jerold Gruebel, president & CEO of Network Knowledge. “We want to broadcast as much of the treasure of national programming as possible, and we want to be a valued community resource for locally-produced programs, primarily in collaboration with community groups and organizations.”

To do this, Network Knowledge has begun a strategy of reducing debt through the sale of assets and diversifying its fund raising by increasing viewer support, attracting more business partners for sponsorship of its programming and creating additional infrastructure revenues, such as increased tower leases.

Two years ago, Network Knowledge sold its WQEC transmitting tower in Fowler, Illinois. WQEC is the Network Knowledge community-licensed public television station for Quincy. With the leaseback of tower space for WQEC (at no cost), the new tower owner is able to generate revenues from tower leases while Network Knowledge was able to reduce debt equal to the sale of the tower.

Network Knowledge is presently completing the sale of farm land it owns for its WMEC/ PBS Macomb transmitting site in Colchester (completion of the sale should take 4 to 6 weeks), and may consider selling its farm land for the WSEC transmitting site in Franklin. Sale of the Colchester farm land will eliminate the line-of-credit debt Network Knowledge has with Bank of America, its primary lender, and give it funds to pay debt service on its long-term loan for approximately half of this fiscal year which began on July 1.

“This sale reduces our overall debt and gives Network Knowledge much needed relief in paying debt service, which in turn helps our operating cash flow. We retain ownership of the transmitting tower and all equipment on it.”
