Susquehanna Stations in Cincinnati and San Francisco Go Digital With Harris
Publish date:

Harris Broadcast will supply several Susquehanna Radio Corp. stations with RF digital products for the San Francisco and Cincinnati listening areas. Susquehanna has purchased the equipment for three stations, KFOG(FM), KSAN(FM), San Francisco, and WYGY(FM), Cincinnati. KFOG will receive a Z8HDS transmitter from the Harris line of Z-HD transmitters. KSAN will upgrade its current Harris transmitter to a Z16HDC transmitter, which will allow the station to begin broadcasting an HD Radio signal.
WYGY began broadcasting an HD Radio audio signal in October using the Harris DEXSTAR IBOC Exciter. Susquehanna has also upgraded WYGY's Intraplex STL PLUS T1 STL system by adding new Intraplex PT/PR-353 IBOC-ready 44.1 audio modules. The modules are a plug-in retrofit that upgrades the STL PLUS to 20 kHz audio bandwidth.
"With regard to HD Radio, Susquehanna Radio is looking toward the future, and we are excited about it," said Norm Philips, director of technical operations, Susquehanna Radio Corp. "Harris has been one of the leaders in new technology and because we were using the Platinum Z series of transmitters in San Francisco, we believe that upgrading to the Z-HD series was a logical step."
