To modernize its infrastructure, Turkish public broadcaster Türkiye Radyo Televizyon (TRT) chose 133 transmitters from Nautel, ranging in size from 1 kW to 20 kW. Nautel is also supplying multiple 300 kW transmitters to improve the medium-wave broadcasting capability of TRT.
Based in Ankara, TRT provides one local, eight regional, and four national radio services. In addition, the Voice of Turkey provides programming in 27 languages, including Turkish, on shortwave. TRT radio is available on the Internet, satellite, and cable, as well as terrestrial services.
Nautel transmitters are designed to provide maximum on-air continuity with ease of service by using hot-pluggable RF power modules and power supply modules. The company’s transmitters show a consistent track record of robust operation through deployments in harsh environments in more than 176 countries around the world.
