New Regional Service Shortwave Antennas Deployed
September 5, 2002 (Greenville, NC) –LBA Technology, Inc. is now shipping its new Model HFRC shortwave antennas, representing the first deployments of a new generation of regional service shortwave antennas. These antennas are being installed in Guatemala, Venezuela and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The HFRC antenna is engineered for broadcast and communications service out to 700 KM. The proprietary design provides both groundwave and skywave transmission. Rated to 50,000 watts, the HFRC antenna covers the 3 to 12 MHz band in three broadband, adjustable models.
Designed for rapid installation, the HFRC is field adaptable for permanent or temporary installation. When temporarily installed, HFRC antennas also feature rapid readjustment to new frequencies. These features make the HFRC ideal for emergency and military applications where portability and frequency agility are important considerations.
A unique feature of the HFRC antenna is the ability to integrate other antennas, such as VHF communications, FM repeater, and wireless data without special isolation from the shortwave transmissions. This enables a completely self-contained transportable broadcast site.
The HFRC regional service shortwave antenna is another in a family of LBA products and services targeted to the international broadcast and communications industry.
