VS Series Big Transmitter Features

Big transmitter features for unmatched value.

Many transmitters in the 300 W to 2.5 kW class use an inexpensive analog exciter that is sometimes an external unit. But in the VS Series, not only did Nautel engineers integrate the exciter, they implemented a true direct-to-channel digital exciter to achieve class leading performance. That means crystal clear audio and outstanding value. A great achievement considering that digital exciters alone usually sell for over US $10,000.

The VS300 and VS1 transmitters with their built-in RDS generator, GPS input, powerful presets and -90 dB SNR make for powerful and extremely cost-effective exciters.

Easy upgrade path to HD Radio digital broadcasting when used with the optional VSHD unit.

Type-Certified VS300 for Low Power FM (LPFM)

The VS300 is the most advanced type-certified Low Power FM transmitter available, and is ideal for use by community, religious, educational, and other non-profit radio groups. VS300 LPFM is also type-certified for HD Radio. Nautel customers have experienced Success with VS300 for LPFM. See all Nautel LPFM Transmitters.
