 7 Upgrade Ideas for Operators

High AM Radio Performance Antenna
Increase your station's signal level.
Some operators may be able to increase their station’s signal levels by substituting the HPR.0990 Antenna for their existing one. Inquire with Information Station Specialists if there is an opportunity for you station to take advantage.
See details about the HPR.0990 Antenna.
2HQ5.1 TIS Audio Processor 
Audio Bandwidth Upgrade
Give your station a more natural sound.
Add a 5000 Hz audio bandwidth filter or processor to your system’s audio chain to make broadcast quality more natural – like conventional broadcasters.

This is an upgrade usually performed in conjunction with the addition of a high quality IP.76 Digital Message Player and Professional Recording Services (listed below).

If your system was installed after 2015, you already have 5000 Hz bandwidth capability built in.
See details about the HQ 5.2 Broadcast Quality Audio Processor.
