KHOG Transmitter Building Expansion

1 September, 2001 (17:00) | DTV, HDTV, Projects

In order to accommodate the additional transmitter equipment for this station’s HDTV transmitter the building had to be expanded considerably.  I was able to include in the budget enough area for a sound-resistant office where maintenance records, spare parts and test equipment could be kept and calls could be made without having to shout over the noise of the two transmitters.

Prior to the expansion of the building  Expansion underway!  The completed project.
This was not a huge project, but the clean and spacious end result was very welcome for the engineers (such as myself) working at the site and it included redundant cooling systems for the very warm Arkansas summers which had, on occasion overheated the analog transmitter if one of the AC units froze up or failed.
