RCS Aquira

RCS Aquira
Traffic and business system
Booth 201
Aquira is scalable from a single station to multi-station or multi-location broadcast groups. With a modern user interface, a user can open multiple logs at the same time and drag and drop spots from one log to another. Its report writing gives the user the power to create custom reports and save them with an easy-to-use Report Builder Tool. With Flexible Rate management, the user can maintain special control over each station. Powerful accounting functions generate a single invoice or send a group of invoices from a customized list at the click of a button.

Continental Electronics 816R-7C
High-power FM analog transmitter
Booth 501
The 816R-7C is capable of delivering up to 44kW of analog RF power using a single, air-cooled, Eimac 4CX20,000E tetrode. The 816R-7C is the analog version of Continental’s existing 816HD-25 analog/HD Radio transmitter already in operation and delivering up to 28.5kW of analog and HD Radio power at 1 percent HD injection. While the 816R-7C is designed to be an analog FM transmitter, it can easily be upgraded later to analog and HD operation, satisfying the needs of broadcasters needing to replace their existing analog transmitter now while not wanting to step up to HD Radio in the foreseeable future.

Shively Labs 2700 Series
Combo series
Booth 506
Shively Labs offers its new 2700-Series comb-line, band pass filter offering 4-pole response in a 3-pole package. The 5kW balanced combiner shown uses these filters, and the new compact hybrids will fit in tight spaces. Higher power versions of these filters will provide balanced combiner modules rated at 10kW+ with only a slight increase in footprint.
