Sacramento, CA - Jampro Antennas, Inc. — a world leader in the manufacture and design of radio frequency components and antennas for radio and television transmission — today announced the successful installation of a high power digital antenna for KOVR and KMAX, a Sacramento, California-based duopoly affiliated with CBS and the CW network.
Jampro provided a top mounted, elliptically polarized JSH-24 UHF Broadband Elliptically Polarized Slot antenna – part of the company's Prostar series – for digital channels 21 and 25. The antenna's azimuth pattern is ideally suited to fully cover the San Joaquin Valley and Sacramento markets. The Prostar broadband series of UHF slot antennas provides low VSWR and significantly more bandwidth than ever provided by a UHF slot array, while maintaining very low weight and wind loading characteristics.
"In addition to delivering a broadband elliptically polarized antenna solution configured specifically for their tower height and location, we rebuilt, re-conditioned 1,600 feet of 6-1/8 inch Marmon clamp rigid line and converted from 75 to 50 ohm," said Alex Perchevitch, president of Jampro. "We are very pleased to welcome KOVR/KMAX to our ever-growing family of satisfied broadcasters."
