WAPA-TV covers ‘World’s Best 10K Road Race’ live from start to finish

WAPA-TV in San Juan, Puerto Rico, used Microwave Radio Communications (MRC) and Link technology to provide complete live race coverage of the 10th Annual World's Best 10K Road Race.

Production partners HyDra Comm and RGB Broadcast used MRC and Link communications equipment to deliver coverage from start to finish. Until this year’s race, coverage was limited to no more than half of the course.

Live feeds from two Link camera radios, an L1103 and the new L1503, and MRC high-gain omni antennas were transmitted to two Link receivers through a combination of MRC high-gain sector antennas installed at a temporary antenna structure near the midpoint of the race course. From there, the video was backhauled to the studio via two 7GHz MRC tripod-mounted portable STRATA transmitters.
