Harris Corp. donated a high-power FM radio transmitter and digital exciter to the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in Calgary, Alberta.
The Harris Z-Series transmitter, to be installed this month, will be part of SAIT Polytechnic’s Broadcast System Technology program curriculum for RF engineering beginning in 2008.
SAIT is the oldest publicly funded technical institute in Canada, and offers the only broadcast technology program in that country. The two-year program, certified by the Society of Broadcast Engineers, provides education in technical aspects of the broadcast industry.
The Harris donation marks the first time a high-power FM transmitter will be included in the curriculum.
