BTC has purchased GatesAir Flexiva FAX 10kW transmitters for eight high-power FM Radio sites through New Tek, GatesAir’s local channel partner. The transmitters will be delivered in redundant N+1 configurations for maximum uptime; and include Direct Drive designs to simplify RF designs and enhance overall efficiency.
Deliveries will take place across three phases. The first delivery, anticipated in the next several months, will cover the two main network sites.
GatesAir won the contract due to the exceptional reliability and performance of its Maxiva DVB-T and DVB-T2 transmitters in operation at BTC television facilities. Low power consumption and reduced operational costs associated with GatesAir transmitters were cited as key factors in the decision.
BTC expects to continue building out its FM Radio network with GatesAir Flexiva transmitters as new sites are added.
