CINCINNATI� GatesAir demonstrated an FM over-the-air system designed for broadcasting on frequencies between 76 and 88.1 MHz at the 2015 NAB Show.

The Flexiva FAX transmitter family includes a low-band FM high-power amplifier, which maintains signal quality while broadcasting as much as 12 MHz lower than the traditional FM band.

This system is tailored specifically to transition AM radio broadcasters in Brazil to a proposed expanded FM radio band (currently TV Channel 5-6) for the South American country. GatesAir�s transmission architecture simplifies frequency, filtering and amplification changes required to broadcast within the expanded FM band, without financially burdening the broadcaster.�
