As a small child, John Turner, once touched the 6BG6 horizontal output tube of a TransVision television set his father was building. The shock sent young JT sailing across the room and knocked him cold. But when he awoke, he had an uncanny understanding of electricity and an unquenchable addiction to electronics. That addiction has led to a long and distinguished career designing television facilities all over the country. As the owner and principal engineer at Turner Engineering, John was honored by the National Association of Broadcasters with their Television Engineering Achievement award in recognition of his distinguished career, his outstanding contributions to the television industry, and his guidance of the television industry in the practical implementation of digital television systems.
