Recent data from The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders and CAP shows cars with DAB radios as standard rose to a record 95% of all new cars. DAB receivers in new commercial vehicles increased to a record level of over 64%. In total, DAB was fitted to 2,150,000 new cars and 232,600 new commercial vehicles in 2019.
A new version of our DSP FM Broadcast 5-band Audio Processor design (an option available on our latest FMTX Series of transmitters) is now in production. The pilot and switching of the audio (stereo subcarrier generation) is now done entirely within DSP for a significant improvement compared to discrete digital 'chopping' of the audio, as used in recent industry practices. Natural bass and stereo enhancement, plus distortion cancelled clipping stages, make the performance of this £200 option comparable with processors costing ten times the price.
Although long out of production, many radio stations still enjoy using this ever-popular transmitter. We still have parts stock and can service these transmitters, for those who don't wish to replace them just yet. Contact us with details of your servicing requirement and we'll do our very best to help! We also still provide an RDS update service and can send you a simple plug-in device, pre-programmed with your desired new content.
We are pleased to announce the launch of the TX-DAB350 A powerful and compact 350W DAB Modulator/Transmitter. Ideal for Small Scale DAB stations in the UK and Local DAB Broadcasters worldwide. Featuring a Doherty amplifier, this transmitter is ideal for driving antennas with gain for ERPs of 500W or more. This super-efficient all-in-one solution will slash energy consumption costs, compared to ordinary DAN transmission systems. Our range of DAB products can be found here.
We are pleased to announce the launch of the TX-AMP400 A powerful and compact 400W DAB and DAB+ RF Amplifier. Ideal for Small Scale DAB stations in the UK and DAB networks worldwide. Featuring a sixth generation LDMOS amplifier, it's ideal for driving antennas with gain for ERPs of 800W or more. Our range of DAB products can be found here.
UK regulator Ofcom today announced coverage increases for 74 radio stations. Built in the UK, our FM range includes relay transmitters, 50 Watt, 100 Watt, and 300 Watt models, plus RF amplifiers for those wishing to boost the power of their current transmitter. Based on two decades of FM experience, our products are Ofcom / CE compliant.
Market demand for our products has caused a temporary increase in lead-times. We give all customers our best attention at all times, working in strict rotation of orders. Please order early to avoid disspointment. Payment is not taken until goods are ready for despatch.
Our new 300 watt RF Amplifier is now available. Powerful and reliable, the FMAMP300 is housed in a highly compact 2U enclosure and features the latest Enhancement Mode RF FET output device for ruggedness and efficiency. Ideal for Community Radio stations looking for an increased power output from an existing low power transmission system.
Our new 300 watt version of the FMTX Series of transmitters is now shipping. Available as a complete broadcast system in one low-cost unit, the FMTX300 has 5-Band Digital DSP Audio Processing, plus Digital Stereo Encoder and a digital synthesis RDS Encoder built-in. This provides a complete, powerful FM broadcast system with digital sound quality, and full RDS features - such as RadioTEXT - without the need for RDS data feeds to the site or computers at the site. The product is also available as a wideband MPX input version for those who prefer to specify their own choice of processors and coders - or for STL feeds. Also offered, is a 300W FM Rebroadcast Translator/Repeater version. All variants are in the same highly compact 2U form factor. Possibly the smallest and lowest cost 300W transmitters available!
Need an antenna solution? We can provide computer modelling and coverage predictions plus a variety of antennas. Computer modelling demonstrates how the antenna will radiate in your particular application and on a specific mast or building. This could prove very different to manufacturers' data which is provided on a 'free space' basis. From dipoles to Yagiis and circular to mixed polarisations, we can help.

For RF, connector quality is the key to system reliability, but RF connectors can be quite costly. Our buying power allows us to offer customers good quality connectors at very reasonable prices. Contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
RG cables and Heliax(TM) are available in custom from us lengths, even custom terminated - if desired - with your choice of connectors. Contact us at: email@example.com
We've just shipped a batch of custom RDS encoder PCB solutions to an OEM manufacturer. These boards use the very latest micro-miniature surface mount devices resulting in a PCB size of just 4cm x 2cm, including digital synthesis and filtering. If you require a custom RF, audio, data, telecoms or control solution, please don't hesitate to get in touch for fast development of quality circuits at surprisingly low prices. Contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The UK's broadcast regulator has announced that it will accept applications for FM power increases from existing stations in the Community Radio tier. Where possible, Ofcom MAY be able to increase the ERP of the existing licence, or consider broadcasters' plans to update antenna systems to better utilise the power granted under their existing licence. We specialise in coverage planning and antenna modelling, plus we have high quality, low cost, powerful FM transmission systems which use the latest circuit technology for efficiency and reliability. Community Radio often relies on restricted revenues. As such, it's vital that we provide the lowest cost route to maximising power and coverage. Contact us at: email@example.com
We're currently working on many projects for OEM product manufacturers. Whether you're a manufacturer or systems integrator - even an engineer with a one-off requirement - please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org to see what we can do for you. From simple switching circuits to firmware - or PC driven - electronic solutions, our key engineers have decades of experience.
Many RF systems have 'open collector' control and monitoring, but we've developed a TCP/IP based adaptor which can take simple TTL connections and provide worldwide internet control of such functions. Password protected, with security built-in, the embedded server software can be customised with customers' specific requirements and logos. Contact us at: email@example.com
We're pleased to have completed an order - on time and to budget - for an export customer who is deploying our FMTX100 with integrated MPX receiver, in order to expand and densify their network coverage. The same 125 Watt Exciter/Transmitter product is available in several versions, including an all-in-one broadcast system (DSP Audio Processor, Digital Stereo Coder and digitally synthesised oversampling RDS coder all integrated in to a single compact unit). Contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our FMTX100 is a 125 Watt 'all-in-one' broadcast system; it features a DSP Audio Processor, Digital Stereo Coder
and digitally synthesised oversampling RDS coder all integrated in to a single, very compact unit. So now,
many smaller stations can afford uncompromised back-up quality, either as a portable spare
transmitter - or as a 'B' system integrated in to the system rack (with automatic instant changeover
implemented). Contact us at: email@example.com
The FMTX100M can be used as a high-power exciter for multi-kilowatt systems. It has a multiplex input and very clean RF spectrum, making it a high quality, yet low cost choice, for high power FM broadcast systems. Contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
