Building the Biggest
Power savings, outstanding reliability and world-class customer service were key to Nautel’s 2 Megawatt NX2000 system selection at Europe’s most powerful MW station – Antenna Hungária, Solt, Hungary. It’s now on-air on 540 kHz and can be heard all over Europe as well as in parts of Africa, Russia and Asia.
Five solid-state, DRM-enabled NX400 transmitters and a 2,000 kW combiner comprise the 2 Megawatt system which replaced an aging custom-built tube transmitter that had been in operation since 1977.
The large-scale deployment involved large infrastructure changes at the site; including interfacing with existing 11 kV voltage supply, building modifications, and air handling modifications.
