Clear Channel selects Ai’s water-cooled e2v ESCIOT-powered Quantum
Ai's Depressed Collector Quantum transmitter will replace an old tower damaged in hurrican Ivan.
Clear Channel Broadcasting has selected Ai’s Depressed Collector Quantum transmitter using the e2v ESCIOT water-cooled tubes for analog transmission at WPMI-TV (NBC 15) in Mobile, AL.
The replacement is a result of hurricane Ivan damage to the existing tower. WPMI lost about 1200ft of its old tower requiring an immediate relocation of its Channel 15 transmission facilities.
The new two-tube transmitter will replace an older, lower-efficiency, three-tube Comark Klystron system. Installation is scheduled for completion this month. Ai shipped the two-tube Quantum IOT immediately after WPMI placed the order enabling installation to begin less than a month after the storm.
