Forget “Bend at your knees.”
When it comes to moving really heavy stuff, transmitter manufacturer Broadcast Electronics suggests an aerial approach. Check out this cool photo of a helicopter lowering KDNN(FM)’s new FMi 25T HD Radio transmitter through a narrow access in the roof of the Century Plaza in Honolulu.
BE built the 25 kW HD+FM transmitter to be completely disassembled, if necessary, to move into place. To complete KDNN’s conversion to HD Radio, a BE field service engineer is on site this week to reassemble the transmitter and commission it for service.
KDNN is a Clear Channel station and the fourth station in Honolulu to implement HD Radio using a BE transmitter.
