PTEK Radio Station in a Box (RIAB)
Remote broadcast kit
The Radio Station in a Box (RIAB) contains all the equipment to have a stereo FM radio station up and running in a matter of minutes. This portable system can be used for natural disaster sites or as a back-up for a transmitter site -- even in remote locations. The system is pre-wired and ready to go. Simply install the antenna on the highest point of the building, run the coax to the transmitter, hook up the ac power (either local or generator), and it's on the air. Using a laptop as the audio source gives greater flexibility. Programming with the optional radio automation software could not be simpler. Built-in wireless (where available) gives the option of broadcasting any streaming Internet audio source. Or, just put in a CD to play tracks and use the microphone for announcements. System includes: FM broadcast transmitter, BSI Simian Radio automation, desktop mic, 5/8 3dB gain antenna, coax cable with connectors, 220Vac input 50-60Hz, FCC-certified for LPFM, and housed in 4RU shock-proof rack case.
