KZGZ extends reach with Jampro
GUAM: Known regionally as Power 98 FM Top 40 radio, KZGZ radio is now able to broadcast throughout Guam on three frequencies thanks to antenna upgrades carried out by parent company Sorensen Pacific Broadcasting. The upgrade involved the purchase and installation of Jampro’s JSWB high-power, super broadband FM antenna.
‘Jampro has been working with Sorensen Pacific Broadcasting for a number of years and we were ready to help its stations upgrade as soon as they said the word,’ recalled Alex M Perchevitch, Jampro president. ‘Our JSWB antenna is ideal for multiple frequency applications, so was the perfect choice for Sorensen when it wanted to extend the reach of its popular KZGZ and KGUM stations, as well as add KPXP to its family of stations. The antenna offers outstanding VSWR performance and an 88-108MHz frequency range. We couldn’t be more pleased with the delivery, installation and performance of the antenna.’
Sorensen Media Group (SMG), a privately-held media and entertainment company in the Mariana Islands, recently relocated one of its frequencies from Saipan and wanted to broadcast three frequencies, thus upgrading to the JSWB antenna and ultimately expanding its reach.
According to Mr Perchevitch, ‘the antenna — which is 0.8RFR lambda to minimise downward radiation – was customised to meet the customer’s requirements. Jampro also delivered an RCCS three-frequency Starpoint Combiner, transmission line, and Proline Rigid Line and accessories. I am very happy to report that Sorensen says the new antenna and support gear has exceeded their expectations.’
