Nautel was recently closely involved in the formation of two of the largest medium wave transmitting facilities in their respective regions.
The first is a 400 kW broadcast site in Bonaire, an island municipality of the Netherlands operating a Nautel NX400 transmitter. The second is a 2 MW site in Solt, Hungary, a small community about an hour South of Budapest, operating five NX400 transmitters through a sophisticated combiner.
A Closer Look
So, why operate such large broadcast facilities? And how do they minimize future operating costs?
The Bonaire site is owned by Trans World Radio and broadcasts a Christian program, which has a strong listenership in the Caribbean Islands, Central America and northern countries in South America.
