LBA Technology 100,000 watt ATU for Saudi Project
LBA Technician Tunes New ATU

LBA has designed, furnished, and commissioned a new medium wave antenna tuning unit and RF filter for the Ministry of Communications of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia through its construction contractor.

The 549kHz ATU is rated for 100,000 watts, 125% modulated and is compatible with DRM standards.

The system includes filtering to reject a nearby AM signal at 873kHz. The ATU and RF filter system was built using LBA’s exclusive high power modular construction, permitting rapid on-site installation and commissioning, which was done by LBA Technology personnel. The ATU RF filter system was built in our Greenville NC shops and sent to Saudi Arabia.
