One of this country’s few remaining unmanned frequency-modulated (FM) radio transmitter sites—at 12,000-ft. altitude in the mountains of Utah—will be receiving an upgrade, thanks to Jampro Antennas.

One of this country’s few remaining unmanned frequency-modulated (FM) radio transmitter sites—at 12,000-ft. altitude in the mountains of Utah—will be receiving an upgrade, thanks to Jampro Antennas. The company is handling the work for KUER, the Salt Lake City-based radio station operated by Utah State University. The work involves consolidating three FM signals by means of a constant-impedance combiner. Jampro will also supply and install a broadband panel antenna, protective radome, transmission line, and monitoring equipment, with the intent of bringing the radio signals for stations KUER, KUER-HD2, and KUER-HD3 together.

“We installed the station’s initial antenna system in 1973,” relates Alex Perchevich, President of Jampro. “Periodic upgrades and additions have extended their range and signal quality...the University selected us for this significant upgrade based on our cost-effective technology and proven track record of reliability. We sincerely appreciate their loyalty and confidence in Jampro.”
