WAWS-TV FOX 30 NEWS GETS “RELOCATED? USING RF CENTRAL INTEGRATION SERVICES

Jacksonville, FL, May 12, 2008 – WAWS-TV Fox 30 News is now BAS Relocation compliant after a microwave equipment overhaul led by RF Central, a leading digital microwave technology and integration provider.

With three of its skilled technicians on site over a seven-day period, RF Central replaced three transmitters and two receivers as well the station’s remote control unit to help WAWS-TV Fox 30 News through its transition. In addition, two of WAWS-TV’s mobile trucks required a full Nycoil replacement, a tall task that WAWS-TV Fox 30 News System Engineer Joe Brown says was easily achieved by RF Central.

Marking the station’s first time in using RF Central’s integration services, Brown says that RF Central proved the ideal choice, facilitating the transition in a timely and efficient manner. “RF Central’s proficiency and professionalism was remarkable,? explains Brown. “While it manufactures its own microwave equipment, its team is highly skilled and knowledgeable on working with other manufacturer’s equipment. In addition, RF Central is the company I know of that is able to offer loner trucks while on location working on live truck microwave integration, which was vital for keeping Fox 30’s day-to-day productions and broadcasts seamless throughout the entire process.?

In the heart of 2 GHz BAS Relocation, RF Central CEO Jeff Winemiller says, “RF Central prides itself on being a resource for broadcasters and the various issues they face in the ever-changing world of technology. We are happy we could uphold this mission with WAWS-TV Fox 30 News.?

He adds, “With BAS Relocation impacting many within the broadcast industry, RF Central has taken measures to deliver integration services at a level that adheres to the 2 GHz conversion. We have inventory ready for installation with skilled technicians who are able to work with various manufacturer equipment and ready to travel anywhere in the continental United States via field service trailers.?
