With the broadcast television spectrum incentive auction eyeing the finish line, it’s time for Broadcasters to prepare for the transition. The challenges facing the North American Broadcasters to transition to new frequencies in the allotted time-frame are significant. A substantial issue will be the capacity of the supply chain to meet the demand for new equipment, especially in antennas.
Kathrein answers the need with the introduction of a new plug and play UHF Broadband Pylon Antenna that can be utilized as an interim step to shut down existing antennas and migrate to a new solution while staying on the air. The Broadband Pylon Antenna is capable of 60kW of input power, with a frequency range from 470-698MHz and can combine 2 broadcasters at 1000kW of ERP to sustain full power capabilities. It has been structurally engineered to hold up against all weather conditions and has a very low wind-load to minimize impact on your tower infrastructure.
