How did you get into your business, or what motivated you to start it: "While working as a television broadcast engineer, Jan Strock, Signals Unlimited design and installation specialist, was involved in the transition to DTV for a local broadcast station. This transition was mandated by the FCC, and was imposed on all over-the-air full-power TV stations.


"Realizing the benefits to viewers, such as snow-free and interference-free television with extra content capability, Jan started to test signals from stations in our region, and assembled equipment to receive channels from D.C., Baltimore, Hagerstown, Harrisburg, York, Lancaster and Altoona, Pa."

"... Jan was also motivated by a lack of DTV equipment, to develop a line of antennas that would not spoil the landscape, but would provide an adequate signal for reliable reception."

Employees: Mary Jane Strock, finance and business administration; Jan Strock Sr., broadcast engineer, RF specialist and electronics technician; and Jan Strock Jr., fabrication and graphics artist.
