Jampro Antennas, Inc, a manufacturer and designer of radio frequency components and antennas for radio and television transmission has announced the successful installation and commissioning of a custom designed, digital television transmission antenna for CFAP-DT, a French language broadcaster located in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.
The antenna is one of Jampro’s Prostar Series, a JA/MS-20/39 SHO Broadband UHF Slot set to transmit on channel 39 in a side-mounted, horizontally polarised omnioid pattern. Jampro customised the unit to fit and travel within the confines of a hi-rise elevator, thus significantly reducing the expensive installation costs normally associated with a traditional rooftop installation.
“We delivered the antenna with polarisation and transmission pattern specifically configured for CFAP’s tower location, environment and broadcast frequency,” said Alex Perchevitch, president of Jampro. “In addition, we designed the antenna’s dimensions to fit within the tower’s elevator to facilitate installation.”
CFAP-DT is a V Interactions owned station, which promotes itself with the slogan “Be Entertained”. It completed its transition to digital operation in August 2011.
