Three stations have purchased Harris Broadcast HD Radio studio-to-transmitter link systems. Clear Channel-owned KDWB(FM), Minneapolis/St. Paul and WALK(FM), Long Island, N.Y., plus non-commercial KQED(FM), San Francisco have purchased STL PLUS HD systems to provide links to transport digital audio from the studio to the transmitter.
According to Harris, the STL PLUS HD can transport audio, LAN/WAN data, telephone and intercom voice, and remote control signals over T1, E1 and other high-speed digital lines. What distinguishes the STL PLUS HD from the STL PLUS is its new PT/PR-353 module, which allows the STL PLUS HD to transport digital 20 kHz stereo audio at the digital radio-recommended 44.1 kHz sample rate, said Harris.
KQED(FM) will create original programming at its station and will use the STL PLUS HD to transport the audio to its recently acquired sister station, KQEI, in Sacramento.
Along with the STL HD, KDWB(FM) also purchased a T1 multiplex system including analog inputs and outputs, to transmit audio to Minneapolis Clear Channel's backup transmitter site atop the IDS Center in downtown Minneapolis. WALK(FM) will use its STL PLUS HD to return audio from the transmitter, backfeeding the RPUs to the studio.
