Edge FM in Wangaratta is the first broadcaster in Australia to install a Nautel NVLT Series transmitter with a second one ready to go for sister station 102.5 Classic Rock in Deniliquin, NSW.

Innes Corporation General Manager, Karen Olliver, said the new NVLT’s which were first unveiled by Nautel at the 2012 NAB Show, “offer broadcasters an unprecedented level of functionality, efficiency and value.”

“These transmitters achieve up to 72% overall efficiency with the potential to saves thousands of dollars in power costs over the life of the product” she said.

“They also include sophisticated local and remote control, instrumentation and monitoring through Nautel’s state-of-the-art Advanced User Interface.” she added.

The 10kW transmitter was recently installed atop picturesque Mount Stanley in Victoria.

“We’re delighted to have worked together with our client to bring the first of this new series into the Australian market” Mrs Olliver said.

Edge FM General Manager, Frank Davidson, said “the decision to purchase the Nautel NV10LT was based on the potential for considerable power savings compared to our existing transmitter.

“The added benefit of having the latest technology and reliability that is synonymous with Nautel and Innes Corporation was also a factor in our purchase decision.”
