BE HD Radio transmitter lowered in by helicopter


A helicopter lowers KDNN-FM's new BE FMi 25T HD Radio transmitter through a narrow access in the roof of the Century Plaza in Honolulu. Broadcast Electronics custom built the 25kW HD+FM transmitter to be completely disassembled, if necessary, to move into place. To complete KDNN's conversion to HD Radio, a BE field service engineer is on site this week to reassemble the transmitter and commission it for service. KDNN is a Clear Channel Radio station and is the fourth station in Honolulu to implement HD Radio using a BE transmitter.
