Kuwait's Ministry of Information is seeking to upgrade its radio network with solutions from US-based firm, Jampro Antennas, Inc.
The upgrade will include the installation of a Jampro model JADP 12-Bay FM broad band panel antenna, a four-frequency Jampro combiner unit, a Jampro motorised output patching-splitting system and Jampro's Proline brand of dual-feed rigid transmission line.
The equipment will be used to improve coverage of Kuwait's KABD, the largest of the country's three radio networks. KABD has 20 FM and SW transmitters broadcasting in English and Arabic, covering Kuwait and reaching out to the Gulf region.
The JADP antenna has a low VSWR, uniform pattern and axial ratio across a wide band of frequencies. Its feed system includes dry air ressurized power dividers, feed baluns and flexible copper coax cables. For harsh weather locations, such as the heat, wind and sand conditions in Kuwait, the balun and dipole feeds will be enclosed in a radomes.
