Recently, the NRSC provided a new AM MDCL Usage Guideline, NRSC-G101, the purpose of which is to provide useful information to broadcasters that will assist them in using MDCL technology. We know of many customers who are using the MDCL energy-saving transmitter technology to huge success, and even one who is saving over 40% in power costs! Click here to hear from four different customers running MDCL on a total of 11 Nautel transmitters – both new (NX) and old (XR, XL & ND). They share how easy it was to implement MDCL, which algorithm they used, their actual power savings, and the zero impact on station coverage and audio quality.
To implement MDCL technology, AM licensees need a waiver of rules – read the FCC Public Notice. Nautel has made this power-saving technology FREE in its NX Series transmitters since the first NX rolled out in 2008, but you can also implement MDCL on older Nautel AM transmitters.
