RDA Systems Completes HBC Miami
- RDA Systems recently completed a radio studio consolidation
project for HBC in Miami. Confirming HBC’s major commitment to
the Miami radio market, the project included the design, wiring, and
installation of a four-station, 15-studio broadcast facility.
The new complex has a 15-rack technical operations center, four control rooms, three AM talk studios, six production rooms, and two editing booths. There are an additional two racks housed in the penthouse TOC, located in a separate building of the Coral Gables building complex.
RDA arrived in Miami on August, 2000 to begin the installation of the TOC and the 15 pre-wired Studios. Within four weeks, three stations were broadcasting from the new facility. The first two stations to be moved were WRTO-FM and WAMR-FM. WQBA-AM soon followed. WAQI-AM, previously operating from a different building and not under the constraints of a lease deadline, was the last station to be cut-over, on October 29, 2000.
RDA installed four new Harris BMX III-26 consoles for the control rooms and three new BMX-20s for the large production rooms, as well as an SAS 64000 router in the TOC. The studio furniture was provided by Mager Systems of Phoenix. The furniture was delivered to RDA Systems, and the studios were pre-wired in St. Louis.
