Jampro VHF slot antennas selected to rebuild Afghanistan national television network

Jampro Antenna/RF Systems has been awarded a contract from Afghanistan's Wizara-e-Mukhaberat (Ministry of Communications) for 24 of its top-mount VHF Prostar series slot antennas.
The Jampro purchase is part of a national government effort to rebuild the country's television infrastructure, much of which was damaged or destroyed during the 2001 war.
The government-run national network, People's Radio and TV Afghanistan, is headquartered and broadcasts from Kabul, and also currently runs regional stations in nine of Afghanistan's 32 provinces, many of which today operate on reduced schedules.
In making the announcement, Alex Perchevitch, Jampro President, said: "The selection of our VHF Prostar slot series is an endorsement of our product, technology, and capabilities. Our Prostar slot series of antennas have a very well established record and we are very pleased to be able to provide such an integrated system for the rebuilding of the Afghan TV Network."
Jampro's Prostar series VHF slot antennas satisfied the range of requirements specified by Afghani broadcast engineers for PAL low, medium and high powered antennas.
The units’ ability to be combined for HDTV and NTSC broadcasting at various power levels was also a determining feature in the selection process. Key factors additionally included the equipment’s proven reliability to withstand the brutal weather of a cold, mountainous country.
