AM station KVSV in Beloit, Kan., has installed a new
Nautel XR3 transmitter.
The 3 kW box was purchased from
Chris Kreger of RF Specialties of Missouri Inc.
Bart Jones told Radio World, “KVSV is a live, local, full-service station that
plays a lot of music, and the DJs have all noted the improved audio quality,
even though no processing was changed.” Jones also commented on the flexibility offered by the unit’s six programmable power
“The only thing I had to add was a Cat-5 line to
the router, for some of the online programming functions … and I doubt that
was necessary, since all the functions are available from the front panel, but
I just used the Web browser interface to set it up.”
added that station owner Harry McGrath hauled the 25-year-old previous transmitter
away chained to his front-end bucket loader tractor. “He had a ball.
Harry is a hands-off owner guy, and rarely ever shows up at the station, but he
was there that night, at 1:30 a.m., playing with heavy equipment.”
