Broadcast Electronics will introduce a 50 kW AM transmitter at this fall's NAB Radio Show.
It says the unit, to ship in the first half of 2005, is about half the size of comparable models; the company markets it as an "ultra-efficient" 50 kW unit with a small footprint. The transmitter uses a patent-pending modulation design developed by BE.
The company said pricing would be competitive but it has not released details.
Features include control and diagnostic capability locally via a 15-inch, XGA front-panel display, as well as remotely via Internet Protocol. PA modules are accessed from the front; lift-off rear panels provide access to power supplies and AC connections.
BE said the unit has nighttime power capability as low as 250 watts.
Director of RF Engineering Richard Hinkle and VP of RF Systems Tim Bealor made the announcement Thursday.
