Cheltenham, United Kingdom — Alan Dick Broadcast Limited (ADBL), a world leader in the manufacture and design of radio frequency components and antennas for radio and television transmission, today announced that it has been awarded a contract from Abertis Telecom for an antenna upgrade to the Torre de Collserola radio and TV tower in Barcelona, Spain. ADBL has been commissioned to replace the tower’s aging unit with its high power, multi-channel FM CPOL Spearhead Panel Antenna with an 8 around configuration to provide an extreme omni pattern
Abertis, one of the main stockholders of the Torre de Collserola, selected ADBL’s FM CPOL Spearhead Panel Antenna because it fulfilled the strict specifications and requirements imposed by the Tower to meet the demands of its customers. In addition to commissioning the system, ADBL will also conduct Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) to ensure optimum performance upon installation.
“We are extremely pleased to be working with Abertis on its Torre de Collserola project to implement this important upgrade to Barcelona’s famed broadcast tower,” said Simon Williams, project manager of Alan Dick Broadcast “We are confident in the more than 30 years of proven success of our FM CPOL Spearhead Panel Antenna. ”
The FM CPOL Spearhead Panel Antenna offers an extremely heavy-duty screen and dipole assembly that’s constructed of galvanized steel, assuring long trouble-free service under the toughest environmental conditions. The Spearhead Panel, with its massive crossed dipole radiating elements, was developed to meet the demanding requirements of the high power, multi-channel FM market. The panel is ideal for multi-channel operation over the complete FM band from 88 to 108 MHz. A system VSWR of 1.1:1 is achieved for each operating channel.
Torre de Collserola S.A. is a commercial company, founded in 1987, that offers infrastructure services and tower space to radio and TV frequency licensees to optimize their signal transmission. The Torre de Collserola tower’s telecommunication center was architected by Sir Norman Foster, and opened June 27, 1992 for the Summer Olympics.
