AM Broadcast Products

Licensed AM broadcasters can obtain specialized components to keep their stations on the air on a short-term basis and/or during emergencies. Options include transmitters, antennas, supports, groundplanes and accessories.
The TR.6000 AM Radio Transmitter Model 15.73 is a tried and true workhorse solution for 0-10 watt AM operation. Both new and preowned units are available.

Employed for emergency and temporary requirements, this model consumes only 1RU in height, with standard 19” rack-mounting ears. It delivers a high quality AM signal on any AM frequency. Its input accepts balanced 600-ohm audio; the RF output connects to standard 50-ohm cable.

Use the TR.6000 Model 15.73 in conjunction with an existing antenna system or email us to ask us about available new or preowned antennas, supports and groundplanes.

Covered by FCC Part 15 and Part 73/1560 rules.
ANXX - Standard AM Antenna
For low power Special Temporary Authority applications of less than 25 watts.

HPR.0990 – High Performance AM Antenna
Offering twice the efficiency of a standard AM antenna, the HPR.0990 High Performance Antenna is designed for medium power Special Temporary Authority applications up to 300 watts.
Antenna Support & Accessories
These antennas can be mounted atop a pole, an existing antenna support structure or the VP.9000 Vertical Profile Antenna Support and Grounding System, which is manufactured to support them. The VP.9000 System includes antenna mounts, a groundplane connection, an integral lightning arrestor and space for inclusion of the matching transformer (for the HPR.0990 Antenna). If you are providing your own support for the antenna, consider including an antenna mount and a weatherproof enclosure to house the required lightning arrestor, groundplane junction panel and matching transformer (for the HPR.0990 Antenna).
Groundplane and Groundrods
A preconfigured groundplane may be supplied. “PowerPlane Flex”Groundplanes are custom-cut based on the operating frequency, power and the available space for installation. “Unirod” RF Ground Rods can provide the same function in a smaller installation footprint.
