Going south of the equator transmitter maker Rohde-Schwarz has inked a deal with Brazil’s Grupo Massa for its Rádio Massa FM facility in São Paulo. The radio and TV broadcaster chose the liquid-cooled R&S THR9 with a powerful 40 kW output.
Grupo Massa CTO Jose Eduardo Voichcoski emphasized, “Sustainability and efficiency were very important considerations for us in choosing the new transmitter, alongside reliability and resilience.” He added, “We were impressed with the inherent redundancy and reliability of the Rohde & Schwarz design which matched our technical requirements, and we very much appreciate the liquid-cooled architecture which means we are not forced to run high-cost, high-carbon air conditioning. The THR9 is the ideal solution for us.”
Rohde & Schwarz Sales Manager Eduardo Distler said, “Our long experience in the transmitter market means we understand the key concerns of users, like saving space and energy, simplicity in integration and operation, and minimized lifetime costs. We are pleased that Grupo Massa recognized these ideals and selected the THR9 transmitter for its Massa FM upgrade program.”
Rádio Massa FM has five owned & operated stations along with over five-dozen affiliates located in all five Brazilian regions.
