Transmitters

The TR.6000 AM Radio Transmitter Model 15.73 is a tried-and-true workhorse solution for 0-10 watt AM operation. Employed for emergency and temporary applications, this model requires only 1RU in height. It delivers a high quality AM signal on any AM frequency (10 kHz or 9 kHz spacing). Its input accepts balanced 600-ohm audio and the RF output connects to standard 50-ohm cable.

Need a transmitter with more wattage? Inquire. We might be able to help you there too.

Antennas

ANXX Antenna (Standard Efficiency Whip Design, up to 100 Watts)
The ANXX Standard AM Radio Antenna is a10-20' whip antenna that is ideal for applications on any AM frequency in which up to 100 watts is required. Recommended for pole or flat-roof installation with a 32-element, 10' groundplane surround. View webpage.


AN2X Antenna
(Enhanced Efficiency Whip Design, up to 100 Watts)
Next in line is the AN2X Antenna, which has a much longer basepipe than the standard ANXX Antenna (described above), and offers higher efficiency. At approximately 20-25 feet in length, it is recommended for pole or flat-roof installation with a 32 element, 10' groundplane surround.. See webpage.

HPR.0990 Antenna  (Maximum Efficiency Whip Design, up to 270 Watts)
Offering more than twice the efficiency and power capability of comparable antennas, the 32’ HPR.0990 High Performance AM Radio Antenna is designed for medium power applications of 200-300 watts depending on frequency. For pole installation with a 32 element, 25’ groundplane surround. See the HPR.0990 High Performance AM Radio Antenna webpage. See Norfolk, Virginia's, experience and the Radio World letter from Paul Dobosz:  "ISS antenna is an option in an AM pinch; It fills a need for cost-effective, compact AM and TIS antenna."

Need a Fulltime Antenna Solution? The SS.3000 Antenna is a free-standing, ground-installable solution that's efficient enough for fulltime operation on the upper AM channels. Inquire.
