Calgary and Cincinnati - Dec 3, 2007 - Harris has donated a high-power FM radio transmitter and digital exciter to the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) in Calgary. The Harris Z-Series transmitter, to be installed this month, will be part of SAIT Polytechnic's Broadcast System Technology program curriculum for RF engineering beginning in 2008.

SAIT is the oldest publicly funded technical institute in Canada and offers a two-year program that is certified by the Society of Broadcast Engineers. The program provides education in all technical aspects of the broadcast industry including radio, television and post-production, with a focus on audio, video, RF and networking. The Harris donation marks the first time a high-power FM transmitter will be included in the curriculum.

The donation was arranged by David Haydu, director of engineering at CHUM Radio.
