Lincoln, NE (January 28, 2016)—Jetwave Wireless recently installed two Radio Active Designs UV-1G wireless intercom systems in the NBC studio facilities in Washington, D.C., also supplying a third base station for use during remote broadcasts.
“As a wireless dealer, we provide a lot of value-added services, including the installation of fairly sophisticated distributed antenna systems,” explains Jim Dugan, owner of Jetwave Wireless, which is located in Alexandria, VA. “With the upcoming 600 MHz spectrum changes looming and an existing wireless intercom that they were not happy with, they were looking for a change. They wanted to see if there was another solution out there.”
Dugan presented them with the newly introduced UV-1G wireless system: “The UV-1G unit is very spectrum friendly—the base station operates in a very small footprint in the UHF band while the bodypacks operate in the relatively unused VHF band—which minimizes problems with finding available bandwidth. The UV1G offers affords us good spectrum load balancing in putting intercom receive in VHF.
After adding on to the existing distributed antenna system, the 12 RAD bodypacks work throughout the facility’s studios, green room, newsroom, outside in front of the building and most importantly in the back hallways near craft services.
