Philippine Radio Station Adds Multicasting
Manila, Philippines - May 24, 2007 - Radio Mindanao Network has commenced HD Radio multicast broadcasts in the Philippines. Station I FM 93.9 DWKC in Manila became the first commercial station in the country to broadcast with HD Radio technology as a limited test in 2006. The station recently began full-power HD Radio transmissions using a Nautel HD Radio FM transmitter with three multicast signals.
DWKC uses its existing 35kW transmitter for the analog signal and a new Nautel 1kW HD Radio transmitter for the digital signal. The system includes Nautel's M50 digital exciter, importer and exporter. Design and installation was provided by Broadcast World Philippines.
The Radio Mindanao Network was founded by Henry R. Canoy in 1952. The group, which will celebrate its 55th anniversary on-air in August 2007, owns and operates more than 50 AM, FM and TV stations throughout the Philippines.
