Nautel NV20 On The Air

We officially put the first NV20 on the air today, FM + HD. After cleaning up the air chain wiring we capitalized on the things we learned this week. It is amazing the engineering it takes to make a solid state transmitter run IBOC. Linearity is the key and on these boxes it is taken to an extreme. The mask is amazing.

I plan on having the second NV20 on by tomorrow afternoon. A slightly more complex chain and a bit more cleaning up. We will see how this goes.

And one question that may be in your head: yes, the exciter is brand new, built from the ground up. Bright and clean. Nice full bass. You may say it is transparent. Exciters should not color audio.
