BTC has purchased GatesAir Flexiva FAX 10 kW transmitters for eight high-power FM Radio sites through New Tek, GatesAir’s local channel partner.
Specifically, says GatesAir, the transmitters will be delivered in redundant N+1 configurations and include Direct Drive designs to simplify RF designs and enhance efficiency.
Deliveries will take place across three phases — the first delivery, anticipated in the next several months, will cover the two main network sites.
GatesAir also recently installed its Maxiva DVB-T and DVB-T2 transmitters at BTC television facilities.
“Low power consumption and reduced operational costs associated with GatesAir transmitters" were cited as key factors in the media house's decision to select the FM transmitters, the company stated in a press release.
