Best of Show: Nautel VX Series Transmitters

Ten power levels are available in rack-mount series

We are featuring the products that won the Radio World Best of Show Award at the recent NAB Show. Winners were chosen by a panel of radio engineers and RW editorial staff for their innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry. 

Ten FM analog models make up the new VX Series line, in power outputs ranging from 150 W to 5 kW. Compact rack footprint is part of the appeal, with depths of only 20 to 25 inches.

The architecture of the series incorporates state-of-the-art DSP, power supply and FET technology. The RF power chain is based on a new high-voltage FET and is mated with dual-core DSP, which Nautel says provides lots of headroom for future enhancements. Titanium-grade industrial power supplies are hot-swappable with front-panel fingertip removal. Control is via the new HTML5 Advanced User Interface.

Deliveries of 150 W to 2 kW models is anticipated later this year, with 3 kW to 5 kW coming in early 2023.
