UNO Radio Group station WPRM(FM) in Puerto Rico has gone IBOC with a BE FMi 31 HD Radio transmitter. The station, which serves the San Juan market, is reportedly the first facility in Puerto Rico to go IBOC.
"UNO Radio's adoption of HD Radio technology positions the technology for widespread adoption outside the continental U.S.," stated Scott Stull, vice president of Broadcast Business Development for Ibiquity Digital.
WPRM(FM) is a 25kW Tropical format station licensed to 98.5 MHz; it's the first of 12 sister stations to implement HD Radio.
The station converted to HD Radio using a BE FMi 31 HD Radio transmitter with HD Radio signal generator and an FXi 60 digital FM exciter into a separate antenna.
