Greenville, NC - Apr 24, 2012 - LBA Group has shipped to the Republic of India six custom-engineered antenna tuning units (DRM digital-ready, 20kW capable, medium-wave) as part of a 5-year project to digitally upgrade All India Radio (AIR) facilities across the subcontinent.

AIR is the official broadcast department of the Indian government. Working through project partner Arraycom, the LBA Group was chosen supplier for the AIR transmission system overhaul. The upgrade will include converting all AIR broadcast facilities, AM/FM radio, shortwave, and television systems to handle digital transmission of program material.

A common practice in India is for multiple medium-wave services to share one site, imposing difficult requirements on antenna tuning systems. The LBA antenna tuning units are fitted with high performance, specialized filters to permit simultaneous operation with nearby transmission towers.
