Alan Dick Broadcast to Upgrade Antenna for the UAQ Broadcasting Network

Gloucestershire, United Kingdom – Alan Dick Broadcast, Ltd (ADBL) – a leading supplier of broadcast systems for digital and analog audio / video for radio and television transmission – today announced the award of a contract to upgrade an existing antenna at UAQ Broadcasting Network within the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The modifications will permit Radio Hayat FM, recently launched by Gulf News Broadcasting, to transmit at full power. Hayat (meaning “life”) FM’s modern, upbeat 24/7 programming – a mix of Arabic music along with local and international news – caters to listeners in the 18-39 demographic.

ADBL technicians will upgrade the feed system and dipole panels on the original Alan Dick antenna with new high power components to create a Double Dipole Panel with H90 Horizontal/V90 Vertical Polarization and an Omni-Directional Broadband pattern. The new antennas are being manufactured in Cheltenham for installation at the end of August.

“We are honoured to receive another contract from Gulf News Broadcasting following on the heels of a successful upgrade that led to the recent launch of Radio ME, a station that transmits from the same site,” said Barry Sugden, director of Alan Dick Broadcast. “We appreciate the opportunity to help a long-time client offer programming to new audiences while continuing to grow a successful broadcast network.”
