Kuwait City, Kuwait (July 30, 2007)–Jampro Antennas, Inc., of Sacramento, CA announced that it has been awarded a contract by the Kuwait Ministry of Information. Its equipment will be used as part of an upgrade to improve coverage of Kuwait’s KABD, the largest of the country’s three radio networks. KABD has 20 FM and SW transmitters broadcasting in English and Arabic, covering Kuwait and reaching out to the entire gulf region.
The order includes a Jampro model JADP 12-Bay FM broad band panel antenna, a 4-frequency Jampro combiner unit, a Jampro motorized output patching-splitting system and Jampro’s Proline brand of dual-feed rigid transmission line.
JADP is an antenna that uses a wide-band element to excite a cavity resonator for maximum beam control. The result is an antenna which is said to have a low VSWR, uniform pattern and axial ratio across a wide band of frequencies. JADP’s feed system includes dry air ressurized power dividers, feed baluns and flexible copper coax cables. For harsh weather locations, such as the heat, wind and sand conditions in Kuwait, the balun and dipole feeds will be enclosed in a radomes.
Kuwait’s Ministry of Information follows an open and flexible policy domestically and internationally. Print, radio and television reach the entire nations and have made Kuwait the virtual media capital of the Gulf.
