RFS Upgrades NBC 5 and Telemundo 39 Dallas-Fort Worth with Future-Proof Broadcast Technology Ahead of Spectrum Repack

Jun 3, 2016
Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), a global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist, is providing future-proof equipment for NBCUniversal to improve its two Dallas-Fort Worth stations’ ability to prepare for the imminent U.S. broadcast television spectrum repacking program. The project replaces two existing pylon antennas with a single broadband antenna that can operate over the entire UHF television band. The new system will employ RFS’ patented Variable Polarization Technology (VPT), allowing each station to select independent polarization ratios that can easily be changed in the future with a simple adjustment in the transmitter room.
The NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ contract with RFS includes provision of RFS’ PEP Lite antenna, which is both frequency agile (covering the full UHF array) and polarization agile. It has low wind loading characteristics compared to other broadband designs. 
The broadband performance of RFS’ PEPL-56D antenna provides an ideal solution for broadcasting groups that own two or more stations in one market. In the case of NBC Dallas-Fort Worth, PEPL-56D will accommodate both NBC 5 / KXAS and Telemundo 39 / KXTX on a common antenna, each with its own polarization ratio. RFS’ unique VPT will allow both stations to individually set their respective polarization ratios, independent of one another. It will also allow for future polarization ratio changes without replacing or even climbing the antenna, as upgrades and changes can be made from inside the transmitter room.
