Translator Association is dedicated to the preservation of free over-the-air
TV and FM in all geographical areas. It works to improve the technology of
rebroadcast translators and the regulatory climate, which governs them.
Membership is open to all individuals and organizations that are interested
in these goals.
The NTA evolved into
a national organization from an earlier three state regional organization
many years before the FCC expanded the scope of low power television to
permit program origination as well as rebroadcasts. It has continuously
promoted the concept of universal free over-the-air TV and FM and represented
the interests of translator operators before the FCC and other government
agencies such as the Forest Service and the BLM.
