Nautel has announced that it will supply thirty 5 kW NVlt FM transmitters to Turkish Radio-Television Corporation (TRT) over the coming months, with an option to purchase 9 additional transmitters if needed.

The transmitters will be deployed at key locations throughout Turkey. Based in Ankara, TRT provides one local, five regional and four national radio services as well as 6 AM Radio broadcasts. Additionally, Voice of Turkey provides shortwave programming in 32 languages. TRT radio is available on internet, satellite and cable as well as terrestrial services.

The Nautel NVlt transmitters incorporate the company’s field-proven, high-power architecture into a compact footprint. With 72% typical efficiency, NVlt transmitters incorporate Nautel’s award winning Advanced User Interface (AUI) as well as a suite of operational features including onboard direct-to-channel digital exciter, IP and streaming audio input ability, advanced scheduling capabilities, instrument-grade spectrum analyzer, optional onboard Orban processing and more.

“Turkey’s radio infrastructure is already one of the best in the world, and we selected Nautel for this project because they have the tools we need to further enhance our broadcast capabilities,” said Yuksel Solyu, Procurement Manager at TRT. “The ease of remote management via the Nautel AUI, which will be done from our headquarters in Ankara, coupled with the transmitters’ high efficiency and reputation for reliability, will help TRT keep operating costs at a minimum while providing the coverage we desire.”

Nautel has worked closely with TRT over the years on Turkey’s Radio broadcast infrastructure. In 2009, Nautel was awarded a tender for 133 FM transmitters ranging from 1 kW to 20 kW. Nautel also supplied three 300kW MW transmitters to TRT in 2008-2009. The 136 digital-capable transmitters were used to modernize a large portion of Turkey’s national FM Radio infrastructure.

“We are honored that TRT has again chosen Nautel for a high-profile project,” said Wendell Lonergan, Head of Broadcast Sales at Nautel. “We are pleased to partner with TRT as they continue modernizing their infrastructure.” Nautel will demonstrate its industry-leading innovations including FM transmitters at CABSAT in Dubai, Stand A1-42, in March 2017 and at NAB, Booth N8324 in April. About Nautel Nautel is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of AM and FM radio broadcast transmitters.

With more than 14,000 transmitters deployed in over 177 countries since 1970 and more than 6,500 deployments of AUI-enabled transmitters, Nautel continues to lead the way in providing valuable new solutions for digital radio broadcasting and other applications. # # #
