Nautel Completes Major Transmitter Project in India
“Building for a Billion” project covers most of the country with DRM30 transmission.
Hackett’s Cove, Nova Scotia – Nautel has announced receipt of final acceptance on a large transmitter project involving the commissioning of 27 digital-equipped medium wave transmitters throughout the country of India. The project, which was initiated in 2013 by Prasar Bharati for All India Radio (AIR), has been titled “Building for a Billion,” with the goal of bringing digital radio broadcasting to more than a billion residents of the country.
AIR’s digital broadcasting system, the largest in the world, uses high-power (100 – 300 kW) Nautel MW transmitters, each equipped for DRM30 transmission, at 27 separate sites throughout the country. (Nautel has shipped another order of six transmitters to AIR, which will further expand the reach of their digital network across 33 sites). Nautel deployed the transmitters in association with its in-country partner Comcon along with Altronic, providing RF test loads, Digidia, providing DRM modulators/content servers and Kintronic Labs, supplying matching systems for the project.
Additional information on the AIR project is available via a recent Nautel Webinar, which may be found on the Nautel website. To access the Webinar, visit http://www.nautel.com/webinar/building-for-a-billion/.

With more than 15,000 transmitters deployed in over 177 countries since 1970 and more than 7,500 deployments of AUI-enabled transmitters, Nautel continues to lead the way in providing valuable new solutions for digital radio broadcasting and other applications.
