Turkish Radio-Television Corp., the country’s national public broadcaster, is boosting its roster of FM transmitters with the acquisition of 30 Nautel 5 kW NVLT FM transmitters, which will be installed over the next few months at key locations throughout the country.
TRT will have the option to purchase an additional nine transmitters if needed. The Nautel transmitters will be used to assist TRT’s broadcast of channels, which include one local, five regional and four national radio services, as well as six AM radio broadcasts.
Using the Nautel transmitters, which feature the company’s Advanced User Interface, will allow for TRT to perform remote management from its headquarters in Ankara. The transmitter’s operational features also include onboard direct-to-channel digital exciter, IP and streaming audio input ability, advanced scheduling capabilities, instrument-grade spectrum analyzer, and an optional onboard Orban processor.
Nautel has previously worked with TRT, providing transmitters to support its broadcast infrastructure.
