GatesAir Remains Leading Supplier Of Repack Transmitter

News Image
GatesAir has cemented its legacy as the leading supplier of repack transmitters, with nearly half of the market share at the time of press.

The company shipped its 400th repack transmitter in October, and expects to surpass 500 transmitter shipments by the end of 2019. To date, GatesAir has shipped more than 17,000 power amplifiers, representing more than 11.2 Megawatts of transmission power. A full 60 percent of those shipments have been successfully installed and are now on air.

"GatesAir has successfully met all shipping deadlines thanks to detailed capacity planning, resulting in key manufacturing initiatives to handle the volume," said Bryant Burke, Vice President of Operations, GatesAir. "I'm very proud of the work our team has done. Many of our shipments are well ahead of the customer phase requirements, which reduces uncertainty around planning."

GatesAir recently expanded its range of low-power TV transmitters through a strategic business acquisition, strengthening its value proposition for FM, LPTV and translator repack assignments. These assignments will address more than 2000 stations displaced by higher power broadcasters in phases 0 through 10. The filing period for low-power broadcasters is now underway and continues through mid-November.
