The national broadcaster of Algeria, Télédiffusion d’Algérie, or TDA, chose Transradio and Ampegon to work together to replace its 1.5 MW longwave transmission system near Tipaza.
The Transradio TRAM line long- and medium-wave transmitters will be used for the DRM project.
“Transradio is proud to be chosen for such extensive and ambitious projects by TDA,” said Jochen Huber, Transradio CEO. “It proves that our focus on reliability, quality and customer service is still honored.”
The Ampegon team will work remotely from their EMEA headquarters in Schifferstadt, Germany, to make the station’s antennas fully DRM-compatible.
“This project is an excellent proof that the collaboration with Transradio is leading to win-win positions for both companies with full added value for the end-user to get a complete and integrated system,” said Josef Troxler, Ampegon CEO.
The Tipaza longwave transmitter broadcasts throughout the Mediterranean in French on 252 kHz broadcasting with 1500 kW during the day and 750 kW at night.
