Sterling Communications is a Broadcast Engineering Firm which has been helping broadcasters and future broadcasters with all types of engineering questions since 1979.
If you've considered founding a radio or
television station, you know that this is an ambitious
undertaking. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
recommends, and the prospective station licensee soon finds that
he needs, professional assistance in all phases of the
application... not only engineering technology. The FCC even
cautions that all filing requirements should be checked carefully
before filing at risk of dismissal of the application and loss
of FCC filing fees.
Whether you are interested in starting a radio station, starting a LPTV station, or expanding your broadcasting outlets, we can help you quickly and cost effectively with our broadcast engineering services.
Sterling Communications is equipped to meet those needs,
offering a helping hand to guide you through the myriad of details
necessary to create and operate your station. In addition,
Sterling stands on an impressive record of FCC approvals for
licensing and operation.
Bringing together the talents of legal, engineering,
financial, and other professionals, Sterling is an organization with
excellent credentials and an outstanding track record of performance in
this highly specialized field. The majority of our people have spent their
entire adult lives in broadcasting, and are committed to the highest
standards of client service.
Our business is built upon the principles of integrity,
competence, and professionalism as well as an ongoing commitment to establishing and maintaining quality
radio communications. We maintain the
best available technical and data files, hold membership in professional
organizations, and constantly work to upgrade the quality of radio and
television broadcasting. We believe in going the extra mile for our
In today's world, there grow to be fewer and fewer
radio and television stations that are dedicated to the presentation of
quality, family-oriented material. We believe that this is a need that is
not being met to its fullest potential. It is our desire to work together
with individuals interested in this market to provide quality broadcasting, rather than merely quantity.
An FCC first-class
licensed broadcast engineer, Jim Price began his career in
broadcasting nearly 45 years ago as a teenager. He helped found
Sterling Communications in 1979 as vice president. He now serves as
president of Sterling and is dedicated to providing services and
assistance to quality broadcasters.

receiving his degree in Business Administration James has worked in
the realm of Broadcasting nearly his entire career. As Vice

scheduling and processing all work and services we provide. Most
often James will be the one to answer the phone when you call and
he's the one to be able to answer nearly any broadcasting question

Tim is our Sterling staff "field engineer". He is the man! He can take a couple of pages of Construction Permit and build a beautiful and EXCEPTIONAL, economical station. Tim works within the available budget of the CP holder, and gathers the absolute best equipment for their station. He then tunes/tweaks the station to get 100% out of the transmit equipment. He has authored many white papers that processing and transmitter companies use when building their equipment. He's a real gift to our clients.
