New promotion helps owners of older tube transmitters transition to affordable, reliable, and easy-to-maintain solid-state transmitters. Also back by popular demand is the Nautel 50th anniversary inspired 50-month extended warranty on new GV transmitters.
Hackett’s Cove, Nova Scotia – Radio stations in the US and Canada who upgrade from an older tube transmitter to a new Nautel solid state transmitter prior to January 31, 2020 are eligible for up to $10,000 in a “last tube buyback” credit from Nautel – and the customers can keep their old tube transmitters as backup units.
“Older tube transmitters typically have a higher cost of ownership and it’s getting harder to find engineers who are familiar with tube transmitter maintenance,” said John Whyte, Nautel Head of Marketing. “Over the life of a tube transmitter, tube replacement costs can go as high as $40,000. We’re easing the transition to a reliable solid state transmitter by offering a credit covering the cost of a station’s last tube*.”
In addition, customers who purchase a new GV transmitter from Nautel prior to the end of 2019 can add to Nautel’s existing 4-year warranty with an extra 50-month extended warranty. When combined with the standard warranty, new GV customers receive warranty coverage for more than 8 years.
