Alan Dick Broadcast Ltd. has been commissioned to upgrade an existing antenna at UAQ Broadcasting Network within the United Arab Emirates.
According to ADBL, the modifications will permit Hayat FM, recently launched by the UAQ in cooperation with Gulf News Broadcasting, to transmit at full power. Hayat FM, which targets 18 to 39-year-olds, broadcasts a mix of Arabic music along with local and international news, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
ADBL technicians will upgrade the feed system and dipole panels on the original ADBL antenna with new high power components to create a double dipole panel with H90 Horizontal/V90 vertical polarization and an omnidirectional broadband pattern.
The new antennas are being manufactured in Cheltenham, England for installation at the end of August.
