KZGZ radio, known regionally as Power 98 FM Top 40 radio, along with its sister stations KGUM and KPXP, recently got a major upgrade when parent company Sorensen Pacific Broadcasting changed its Jampro Antennas from a two-frequency system to a three-frequency system.
The upgrade, which involved the purchase and installation of Jampro’s JSWB high-power, super broadband FM antenna, now allows the station to broadcast three frequencies, ultimately extending its reach to listeners throughout Guam.
The Jampro JSWB broadband FM side mount antenna is designed for multiple frequency broadcast applications that require moderate to high power capability. Each element is fabricated with high strength thick wall brass and copper. Capable of handling 10 kW to 100 kW, the JSWB is one of the highest power broadband side mount FM antennas available on a single frequency, said Jampro. The JSWB is a circularly polarised antenna ideally suited for HD Radio digital broadcasting simultaneously with the user’s analogue signal.
Alex M. Perchevitch, president, Jampro, said, “Jampro has been working with Sorensen Pacific Broadcasting for a number of years and we were ready to help its stations upgrade as soon as they said the word. The antenna – which is 0.8RFR lambda to minimise downward radiation – was customised to meet the customer’s requirements. Jampro also delivered an RCCS three-frequency Starpoint Combiner, transmission line, and Proline Rigid Line and accessories. I am very happy to report that Sorensen says the new antenna and support gear has exceeded expectations.”
