In late September, LBA Technology exhibited at the NAB Radio Show in Charlotte, NC. The theme of this year’s show was “Radio Reignited,” derived from the recent collaborative efforts of the NAB, the Radio Advertising Bureau, and the HD Digital Radio Alliance in developing a comprehensive marketing strategy to reposition radio for a more lucrative future.

On the floor at the Radio Show’s exposition, we featured two new products, the CAMI(TM) and our new RF vacuum contactor.

The CAMI(TM) series of new-concept microwave isocoupler permit other antennas to be mounted on “hot” AM towers. CAMI systems isolate single auxiliary broadcast coaxial cables for STL’s, FM translators, low-power FM and television translators. Unlike commonly used isocouplers, one CAMI fits all of these applications. They also have the advantage of passing AC or DC current to tower top amplifiers and are more resistant to weather and lightning.

Another key point of interest in our booth was our VC-1 RF Vacuum Contactors. These contactors are designed to switch radio frequency loads including transmitters, antennas, resistive loads and internal circuits for phasors and combiners. They are RF rated at 40 amps, 10,000 volts peak at 1 MHz.

In addition to these new products, we also brought along a TE-1000 Impedance Analyzer and one of our antenna tuning units to have on display.
