Egyptian Radio and TV Union (ERTU) recently placed an order for 20 Jampro flat panel FM antennas, according to an announcement made by Alex M Perchevitch, president of the manufacturing company. ERTU is Egypt’s national broadcasting network as well as the largest radio and television broadcaster in the Middle East with a total audience of approximately 60 million.
“We are gratified that ERTU has returned to Jampro once again for their antenna needs. They have found our antennas to be a cost effective solution that have performed reliably for decades under the harshest hot weather conditions including violent sand storms,’ said Perchevitch.
The model JFVD vertically-polarised dipole, flat-panel antennas ordered by ERTU are particularly suited to Egypt’s climatic conditions. Constructed of hot-dipped galvanised steel, the antenna panels are additionally protected by rugged fiberglass radomes. Each panel has dual dipoles that provide high gain and low downward radiation. Well proven for excellent bandwidth (88 to 108 MHz) and pattern stability, JFVDs also offer ERTU wide flexibility in adjusting coverage by selecting from a variety of Jampro standard and custom directional patterns. A typical single channel VSWR is 1.1:1 or better.
