SPX Introduces Dielectric Low-Power Antennas
RAYMOND, MAINE: SPX Communication Technology (formerly Dielectric) today introduced its new Dielectric DLP-V and TLP-BB series of low-power antennas designed specifically to provide broadcasters with economical choices for low-power TV applications. These include distributed transmission systems, gap fillers, mobile media broadcasting, and translators.

A supplement to the TLP series of antennas, the low-power, single-channel slotted DLP-V series features 30 percent vertical polarization to increase signal penetration for gap-filling scenarios and a more reliable signal. Offering an eight-bay, single-module design, the antenna provides 1.7 kW input power and beam tilt of 1.5 degrees.

The TLP-BB broadband antenna can be used to multiplex numerous low-power stations due to its broadband width of 60 MHz (up to 10 channels wide) with a VSWR of less than 1.15. The antenna offers a 12-bay, double-module design with two six-bay slotted antenna sections fed with a common power divider, cables, and line hangers for multiple-channel operations. The TLP-BB offers 7 kW power input and beam tilt of 2 degrees.

Offering either horizontal or elliptical polarization, the non-pressurized DLP-V and pressurized TLP-BB are stand-alone products that feature simple mechanical designs for ease of installation. The antenna structures can withstand wind speeds of 125 mph, and they feature low-profile slot covers for environmental protection.

Standard mounting hardware is provided in pipe sizes from 1-1/4-inches to 4-1/2-inches and angle leg size from 1-1/2-inches to 3-inches. The DLP-V offers a single standard 7/8-inch EIA input, and the TLP-BB features a standard 3-1/8-inch EIA input. The DLP-V is available with standard directional Azimuth pattern options while the TLP-BB is available in B or M Azimuth patterns.

WMUR-TV Says FAA Drone Rules Preclude ENG
The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
