R e ady f or To mor r ow . As we celebrated our 75th year in 2017, we made a commitment to be the industry leader in serving the needs of American broadcasters participating in the multi-year FCC spectrum-reallocation program, the TV Channel Repack. We opened a new facility in Lewiston, Maine, and increased our workforce— including the engineers so critical to our growth. As we continue to seek new engineering solutions, we remain committed to stable, long-term relationships with our partners, the broadcasters we serve. We produce state-of-theart UHF antennas at our new facility in Lewiston.

M aki ng his t or y . Dr. Charles “Doc” Brown’s Dielectric Products Corporation started developing transmission lines for early wartime radar systems in 1942. After the war, Doc Brown’s team applied their innovative technology to inventions for the emerging field of television broadcasting, and Dielectric was soon supplying equipment for all three major television networks. In 1954 Doc Brown moved the company to his hometown in Raymond, Maine, where it has been headquartered ever since. In 1994, we installed our first digital antenna, and 15 years later,

completed the transition of more than 1,300 broadcasters to DTV. A few years later, our engineering of the HDFMVee master antenna paved the way to HD radio broadcasting.
