Engineers from Egyptian Radio & Television Union (ERTU) were at the BE plant in Quincy last week to finalize delivery of turnkey transmission and antenna systems valued in excess of $1 million. The engineers attended BE’s three-day training class on solid-state transmitter operation and approved the equipment for shipment.
Upon first inspection, the two customized, turnkey systems consisting of five BE FM 2C solid-state FM transmitters in a 4+1 configuration (shown in background) exceeded stringent inspection criteria by Egypt’s government-run broadcast organization. The equipment is bound for ERTU’s transmission sites in Suez and Hurghada, Egypt.
