Excellence in Engineering at FCC:

No Secrecy This Time,
But Issues Remain

I wrote previously how the ancienne regime made recognition of good engineering work at FCC almost an embarrassing secret. By contrast the Excellence in Economics Awards at FCC have always been well publicized. The only tip that the awards were given last time in 2007 was a speech to the awardees on Comm. Tate's website - possibly because no one told her it was a secret. Additional ferreting was needed to find out who the winners were at that time.

Thus it was refreshing that at the end of the 8/27 Commission meeting, the winners of this year's Excellence in Engineering awards were publicly announced:

Stephen C. Buenzow (WTB)
Navid Golshahi (OET)
John Healy (PSHSB)
Brian Marenco (PSHSB)
James McLuckie (IB)
Chris Miller (WTB)
Michael Mullinix (IB)
Group Award: Alison Neplokh and John Gabrysch (MB)
Group Award: Tom Mooring, Peter Georgiou, David Sturdivant, Juan Guerra (OET)
Group Award: Dennis Loria, David Viglione, (EB) Tracy Simmons, Troy Sieg (PSHSB)
Oddly there has been no written announcement to date. But see 2:21 at the following link http://www.fcc.gov/realaudio/mt082709.ram

My congratulations to all the winners for a job well done!
