Bhutan to Modernize SW Equipment

Bhutan Broadcasting Service has recently awarded a contract to Thomson for new shortwave equipment to modernize it’s Sangaygang station, which will improve their nationwide service. BBS will use a 100 kW, DRM-ready transmitter, operating on 5035, 6305 and 7305 kHz. This advancement will replace the existing 1988 50 kW transmitter. Changes should be effective by early 2007.
