Ampegon to Update Shortwave Transmitters for Kuwait Radio
Swiss-based company Ampegon has accepted a contract from Al Rashed to handle the upgrade of five analog shortwave transmitters that are more than 20 years old for the Kuwait Ministry of Information in Al Kabd station.
The five transmitters were originally installed between 1992 and 1995.
Ampegon will refurbish all of the transmitters, and in addition upgrade three of them to full digital DRM integration and converted to the new transmitter control system UCS; this will include new motor drives within the tuning circuits.
Work on the transmitter is expected to start in January 2017.
