Lifetime Achievement Award

William Bartlett Walton Jr. , “Bill Walton”, Chairman, W.B. Walton Enterprises (USA) Formed in 1979, during the 1980s Walton De-Ice, led by Bill Walton, grew up with the satellite communications industry, performing work for Western Union, Comsat, and RCA, as well as government projects. Today, it’s hard to imagine the C-band industry delivering reliable services without de-icing. Walton Initially developed systems for C-band, and adding Ku-Band systems in the 1980’s. As our industry moved from C-band only to include Ku-band, Walton De-Icing systems become essential for efficiently de-icing earth station antennas.   Walton worked with earth station builders such as Vertex RSI, Scientic Atlanta, and others to build de-icing systems. Walton De-Ice  has since become synonymous with earth station antenna De-Icing. Bill Walton was there from the beginning, growing with the industry, and building Walton De-Ice over the last four decades.

W.B. Walton, was the underwriter of the 2019 Teleport Awards for Excellence Ceremony and Luncheon. W.B. Walton Enterprises designs and manufactures a line of equipment that prevents the accumulation of snow and ice on satellite earth station antennas. The company was founded in 1946 by William Walton, Sr. originally to do electrical contract work for companies like Western Union, RCA and Comsat. In 1979, William Walton, Jr., present President and Owner, took on the considerable challenge of fighting the harsher elements of weather that affect satellite communications. Since then, W.B. Walton has become the leading satellite company in providing quality products protecting earth stations during poor weather conditions.
