Dielectric Offers New LPTV Antennas and Filters
Dielectric Communications announced on Monday it was launching a new line of digital antennas and filters for the low power television (LPTV) broadcasters. The Dielectric news release (PDF) provided little technical information on the antennas.

The company currently offers LPTV antennas in its "TLP" slot antenna product line. The new antennas will be rated for input powers up to 2 kW, the same as the maximum input power level of its new low power DTV mask filters. The release said that the antennas would be easy to install and would provide low weight and minimized wind loading. The low power mask filters would meet FCC stringent mask requirements while remaining small enough to be rack-mountable.

"LPTV stations serve an important role in the community by offering a broad range of educational, service, and spiritual programming, often to populations that were previously underserved and yet, many lack the resources to upgrade their equipment for digital broadcasting," said Garrett VanAtta. "With the upcoming FCC filing, we saw an opportunity to apply our expertise and years of experience in the high-power market to offer solutions that specifically address LPTV requirements."

I did not find any information on the new line of antennas on the re-designed Dielectric Web site Wednesday evening. The Dielectric TV planner (PDF) PDF download has information on the TLP series low power antennas but does include the new line.
