How to host a site

  1. Make sure your satellite system is available and capable of receiving the program. It must have a settable antenna capable of receiving SBS6 ku band (SBS6 is located at 74 degrees). (Exact satellite technical specifications will be provided to registered sites about two weeks prior to the broadcast.)

  2. Assign a site facilitator (Information for site facilitators).

  3. Register on-line.

  4. Sign and return the site agreement form.

  5. There is no site fee this year.

  6. Have participants sign in and complete evaluation forms

Videoconference materials

We will post your site location on our web page. We can also post information about your specific site's arrangements, to which you can then refer in your own publicity.

Registered sites may choose to charge attendees a fee to cover the cost of participating.

Broadcast times:

The five broadcasts will begin at 1:00 p.m. (EDT) with test signal (color bars) audio tone.   Actual program begins at 1:30 p.m. (EDT) and ends at 4:30 p.m. (EDT).
