Alan Dick Upgrades Torre de Collserola Tower
Abertis Telecom has chosen Alan Dick Broadcast Ltd. for an antenna upgrade to the Torre de Collserola radio and TV tower in Barcelona, Spain. ADBL has been commissioned to replace the tower’s aging unit with its high power, multi-channel FM CPOL Spearhead panel antenna with an 8 around configuration to provide an extreme omni pattern.
Abertis, one of the main stockholders of the Torre de Collserola, selected the FM CPOL Spearhead panel antenna because it fulfilled the requirements of the commercial company’s customers, says the company.
ADBL will also conduct factory acceptance testing to ensure optimum performance upon installation.
The FM CPOL Spearhead Panel Antenna offers a heavy-duty screen and dipole assembly constructed of galvanized steel. With its crossed dipole radiating elements, it is intended for multichannel operation over the FM band from 88 to 108 MHz. A system VSWR of 1.1:1 is achieved for each operating channel.
Torre de Collserola S.A. was founded in 1987, and its telecommunications tower was designed by architect Sir Norman Foster in time for the 1992 Summer Olympics.
