GatesAir Transmitters Power National Over-The-Air Radio Services in Pakistan

Flexiva™ AM transmitters balance consistent, reliable coverage over large areas with low total cost of ownership
Cincinnati, OH, June 11, 2014

GatesAir, a global leader in over-the-air broadcast solutions for radio and television, is helping Radio Pakistan (the Pakistan Broadcasting Corp.) deliver news, information and entertainment over the air to residents across the country with its reliable, efficient AM radio solutions.  GatesAir supplied its high-power Flexiva™ DX® and 3DX® series of AM over-the-air transmitters to ensure reliable and consistent coverage across the large country. 
 
The power-efficient Flexiva transmitters yield typical efficiencies approaching 90 percent, delivering the industry’s lowest operating costs for AM radio transmitters.
 
“Our national services are absolutely vital to Radio Pakistan, keeping the people informed and up to date,” said Mrs. Samina Parvez, director general, Radio Pakistan.  “We want to focus our efforts on delivering the right programs, so our top requirement was for a supplier who could undertake the complete project and provide continuing support in the shape of essential spare parts to keep the transmission smooth.  GatesAir has an excellent reputation in transmitters, and met all our criteria.”
 
All GatesAir AM radio transmitters leverage modern technology to run exceptionally cool and provide high reliability in harsh environmental conditions, with design efficiencies that ease ongoing maintenance.  Specifically, DX transmitters use redundant circuit designs that, together with modular construction and off-the-shelf components, make them extremely easy to maintain.  The 3DX line of digital, solid-state AM transmitters features Direct Digital Drive technology, which eliminates traditional RF driver designs. This enhancement results in a simpler design, greater efficiency and improved reliability, ultimately reducing operational costs.
 
“When considering very high-power transmitters, efficiency is one of the most critical factors, as is the huge impact on cost of ownership,” said Rich Redmond, chief product officer, GatesAir.  “We have invested in unique and market leading technology to ensure superior efficiency and the exceptional reliability operators expect.”
 
The new transmitter networks are now on air.  While Radio Pakistan is broadcasting analog radio on medium wave, the transmitter platforms can be converted in the field to provide digital radio broadcasting in the future.
