Montanavision Media Inc.
Client Since 2010.
Because of our long list of clients and their wide spread of geography,
we have installed and maintained virtually every type of radio
transmitter in common use in the United States. This depth of experience
enables us to provide rapid and efficient service to our clients, getting their
stations back on the air quickly, when repairs are needed. We are also well
positioned to advise our clients on the best equipment choices for their
existing or future operations.
In 2009, we were contacted by Nautel to provide "authorized" installation
services for their transmitters.
Our first Nautel transmitter installation project was for
Nebraska Educational Telecommunications (NET).
In 2012, we provided factory installation for a Nautel transmitter
at KMSA, in Grand Junction, Colorado.
We installed a Nautel NV30 FM transmitter for KHNE, Hastings, Nebraska.
A 1,000 foot tower supports the UHF TV antenna on the top, and the
10-bay FM antenna is mounted near the top on the left side.
The existing transmitter was a Broadcast Electronics FM 20B, which had given
many years of service. This became the backup transmitter.
The KHNE site has no program origination facilities. It is fed by satellite
from the NET operations center in Lincoln, Nebraska. This equipment is used
to monitor and control the TV and FM transmitters, 11-Feb-2010.
Bill Strong is the site engineer. He is standing where the new
Nautel transmitter will be located.
Atlas Van Lines delivered the Nautel NV30 transmitter to the site on Monday
We decided to leave the transmitter bolted to its shipping pallet.
Bill Hohnstein, one of the field engineers for NET, checks the input
connections on the exciter.
With the new transmitter producing 1.22 kW into a dummy load, Bill checks
the system configuration.
The KHNE site is also home to NOAA weather radio for Grand Island.
