Nautel has announced that it will supply 30 5 kW NVLT FM transmitters to Turkish Radio-Television Corp. over the coming months. TRT will also have the option to purchase 12 additional transmitters, if needed. The transmitters will be deployed at key locations throughout Turkey in 2021.
Based in Ankara, TRT provides five regional and six national radio services, plus six AM Radio broadcasts. Additionally, Voice of Turkey provides shortwave programming in 32 languages. TRT radio is available via Internet, satellite and cable, as well as terrestrial services.
Nautel says its NVLT transmitters incorporate the company’s architecture into a compact footprint. The transmitters have Nautel’s Advanced User Interface (AUI) as well as a suite of operational features including onboard direct-to-channel digital exciter, IP and streaming audio input ability, scheduling capabilities, instrument-grade spectrum analyzer and optional onboard Orban processing.
“We selected Nautel for this project because they have the tools we need to further enhance our broadcast capabilities,” said Yusuf Tasdemir, head of the Transmitters Operation Department at TRT.
“The ease of remote management via the Nautel AUI, which will be done from our headquarters in Ankara, coupled with the transmitters’ high efficiency and reputation for reliability, will help TRT keep operating costs at a minimum while providing the coverage we desire.”
