Vietnam Television Calls on Jampro Again for VHF and UHF Antennas

Sacramento, CA — Jampro Antennas of Sacramento, California has been awarded another contract by Vietnam Television (VTV) to supply two high-power broadband antennas, one for VHF Band III transmission, the other for UHF. Both antennas will provide coverage of CanTho, the fifth largest city in Vietnam, and the largest city in the Mekong delta.

“This follows a major 2011 order for ten Jampro DVB-T (Digital TV) antenna systems that were installed at sites located throughout the Socialist Republic of Vietnam,” said Alex M. Perchevitch, Jampro president. “For many years, we supplied Voice of Vietnam (VOV), the founder of VTV, with radio broadcast antennas. That excellent relationship and the proven field performance of our equipment led to this latest award.”

The JHD-HV4 is a half wave spaced, horizontally polarized flat panel, dual-dipole high-band VHF antenna that can broadcast on Band III at 174 to 230 MHz. Rugged galvanized steel construction ensures many years of dependable performance. The JHD antenna has been proven to have excellent bandwidth and VSWR. It’s ideal for VTV’s broadband/multi-channel op¬erations. Many standard and custom directional patterns are available to fit VTV’s coverage requirements.

The JUHD UHF antenna was selected by VTV for two primary reasons. Due to a modular design, it gives VTV flexibility to configure various elevation patterns so coverage can be customized to suit the topographical challenges of Vietnam which range from flat deltas to mountainous areas exceeding 3,000 meters. VTV engineers worked with Jampro’s technical staff to customize patterns to optimize coverage for the sites.

Secondly, the JUHD antenna’s robust stainless steel construction has proven reliable in hot, wet tropical climates. Fiberglass radomes provide additional panel protection.

Jampro is also providing its own manufactured Proline brand of rigid transmission line for both installations and related RF components.

Vietnam Television, or VTV, is the national television broadcaster for Vietnam. Each major city and most of the 64 provinces have their own TV stations. VTV broadcasts several terrestrial cable, satellite and regional channels, plus an international channel.

Canadian Broadcasting Vancouver Taps Jampro for High-Power FM Antenna System

Sacramento, CA — Jampro Antennas, headquartered in Sacramento, California, was awarded a contract by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to supply a high-power FM antenna system to provide very specific directional coverage of the Vancouver, British Columbia DMA. Broadcasting from a tower atop 4,754 foot high Mount Seymour, a Jampro model JAHD Arrowhead Dipole panel antenna will provide the CBC with above average pattern stability and axial control so as not to interfere with adjacent U.S. border stations.

“This JAHD system provides the power and specific coverage that CBC requires, but also the sustainability to survive an extremely harsh mountain environment compounded by heavy winter icing of the Pacific Maritime climate,” said Alex M. Perchevitch, president of Jampro.

In addition to the 100kw JAHD FM panel antenna, Jampro provided an equipment package consisting of a high power Jampro RCCC constant impedance combiner to combine 5 frequencies, along with an RCPU patch panel/ power splitter system, Jampro Proline rigid transmission line and related RF accessories.

The JAHD is designed for Bands I, II (FM), and III and is easily adaptable for multi-station use. The antenna can be config¬ured to provide various azimuth and elevation patterns. By using op¬tional beam tilt and null fill, the elevation pattern can be shaped to maximize coverage. The design of this circularly polarized antenna may be configured to include varying levels of vertical polarization, with results ranging from small amounts of elliptical polarization to full circular polarization.

Jampro’s RCCC FM Constant Impedance Combiner family has a compact modular design that can be configured to fit into the smallest transmitter rooms. A simple modular design allows the easy addition of frequencies as needed. These combiners use temperature compensated Bandpass Filters which have an integrated heat sink top. This keeps filters cool and locked on frequencies.

The Jampro RCPU is a low effort patch panel with rock-solid connection and low insertion loss. No tools are needed to make patch, rather a positive lock mechanism assures quick and easy re-direction of the RF signal path. It’s ideal for patching RF feeds to emergency antenna, alternate main/auxiliary transmitter, filter by-pass, master station combiner re-route and test point insertion. It is available in several sizes, with optional signal flow indicator panel, dual line power splitter and/or power measuring/VSWR.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (Société Radio-Canada), commonly known as CBC and officially as CBC/Radio-Canada, is a Canadian crown corporation that serves as the national public radio and television broadcaster. Radio-Canada is the national French-language broadcast arm of the corporation.

KRBK Springfield, Missouri, Creates Single Frequency Network with Multiple Jampro UHF Slot Antennas

Sacramento, CA — Jampro Antennas of Sacramento, California, a world leader in radio and TV broadcast antenna systems, recently delivered five of its Prostar UHF slot antennas to KRBK in Springfield, Missouri. KRBK is the primary Fox television station for Springfield and the Ozark Plateau area.

The antennas were deployed at various sites around the area and configured into a Single Frequency Network (SFN) where several transmitters simultaneously send the same signal over the same frequency channel.

Alex M. Perchevitch, Jampro president commented on the project: “Few stations in the United States have deployed a single frequency network in a multiple antenna design successfully. Both Jampro and KRBK are very proud of that accomplishment.”

One of the critical aspects of successfully implementing the SFN was engineering and producing slot antennas which complied with critical azimuth and special elevation patterns. The Jampro engineering staff worked closely with the KRBK consulting engineers in the development.

In order to create the SFN, Jampro delivered five from its line of Prostar brand UHF slot antennas. These antennas are internationally proven for performance, quality and reliability. Compatible with DTV, ISDB-T and DVB-T broadcasts, Prostars are available in power ratings ranging from 1 kW to 90kW. The feed lines are pressurized for pro¬tection, and the slots are radome sealed to protect the antenna from the environment. Prostars are constructed from the finest marine brass, copper and virgin Teflon. Computer modeling is used in the pattern designs and the patterns were confirmed at Jampro’s facility in Sacramento before the an¬tennas were shipped to KRBK. Measured performance and the factory tuning before shipping gave KRBK the confi¬dence that the SFN would perform as desired.

Owned by Koplar Communications, KRBK is the primary Fox and secondary MyNetworkTV television station for Springfield and the Ozark Plateau area of southwestern Missouri. Licensed to Osage Beach, it broadcasts a high definition digital signal on UHF channel 49 from a transmitter in Eldridge.

GeoBroadcast Solutions Names Jampro Antennas as Exclusive Supplier for MaxxCasting, ZoneCasting Networks

Exceptional antenna directivity supports maximized and targeted signal delivery across single-frequency FM radio transmission networks

CHICAGO, May 14, 2013 — Terrestrial radio innovators GeoBroadcast Solutions (GBS) announce Jampro Antennas as a technology partner to advance its vision of helping radio broadcasters maximize over-the-air signals and grow revenues.

Jampro joins Harris Broadcast as exclusive technology suppliers for GBS MaxxCasting and ZoneCasting networks. MaxxCasting expands FM signal coverage areas, allowing broadcasters to take full advantage of their FCC-allotted spectrum. ZoneCasting, pending FCC approval, brings hyper-localization to radio through targeted over-the-air content delivery.

Jampro will supply all antennas, combiners and support equipment related to installation of these components. The custom antennas are specially designed for these networks, providing the advanced directivity required to ensure both maximized market coverage and highly-specific regional targeting.

Peter Handy, CEO of GeoBroadcast Systems, notes that Jampro brought a flexible approach to their antenna designs that uniquely fit requirements for both MaxxCasting and ZoneCasting deployments. That flexibility extends to custom designs that meet the needs of each broadcaster — highly important as coverage patterns and targeting requirements will differ for each market.

“One critical concern is to minimize conflicts created between transmitting multiple signals across the same market,” said Handy. “Jampro clearly addresses these challenges with custom designs that can increase or decrease directionality. This is perfect for ZoneCasting, where we are geographically targeting content across multiple zones in a single market. Furthermore, it is ideal for spreading coverage into areas of a broadcast market that is lacking a clear over-the-air signal.”

The business benefit of integrating Jampro antennas therefore becomes very clear: A larger audience receives the signal due to their exceptional directionality, which means advertisers reach more listeners. This potentially translates to more advertising dollars for the broadcaster by opening new revenue streams.

Handy adds that GBS representatives had a number of conversations at the 2013 NAB Show with broadcasters that recognize the game-changing capability of ZoneCasting, but in the meantime are very interested in the opportunity to increase the distribution of their over-the-air programming through MaxxCasting. This is a perception that Jampro Antennas President Alex Perchevitch echoes.

“As an industry we have always accepted the fact that the legal signal coverage of a radio station is one model, while the actual signal coverage often falls considerably short of what a broadcasters is allowed to service,” said Perchevitch. “A solution like MaxxCasting that allows you to bridge that gap is not only unique, but very compelling.”

Harris Broadcast and Jampro often collaborate on radio and television transmission projects, bringing proven compatibility to GBS for out-of-the-box reliability. Harris Broadcast will integrate Jampro antennas and combiners across these single-frequency FM transmission networks, which incorporate multiple Flexiva™ transmitters and Intraplex® synchronizers as well as special GBS control software.

About GeoBroadcast Solutions
GeoBroadcast Solutions, LLC (“GBS”) was formed in 2009 by founders who collectively have hundreds of years in the radio business. Peter Handy of GBS, Rich Redmond of Harris Broadcast and Alex Perchevitch of Jampro Antenna are amongst the architects and helped develop and test the GBS ZoneCasting technology, currently filed as a petition for rulemaking with the Federal Communications Commission. In 2012, GBS identified and launched MaxxCasting, the technology that helps broadcasters cover more of their signal coverage area. Both technologies are innovative, exciting and revenue generating.
