Utah Public Radio completed installation of a Jampro dual-input antenna as part of its launch of HD Radio at KUSU(FM).

The noncom station at 91.5 MHz is owned by Utah State University. The chief engineer on the project is Friend Weller.

The six-bay Jampro model JSHD with radomes was mounted on a tower on a ridge line northwest of Logan to maximize coverage of the Salt Lake and Cache Valleys, the manufacturer stated.

 "Replacing a 28-year old analog antenna, the Jampro dual-input digital side-mount provided KUSU with isolated and separate inputs for both analog and digital transmitters. As a result, in addition to an improved analog signal and new simulcast digital broadcast of National Public Radio and Public Radio International, KUSU now offers a new HD2 channel of classical music and a new HD3 channel that is operated on campus by the Student Radio Club."
