Now 3 cost effective isolation solutions to add FM translators, LPFM and LPTV to an AM tower

New CAMI™ Broadband AM Isocouplers
These three new CAMI™ models offer more convenient power ratings and new connector options.

LBA Technology, Inc. (LBA), a unit of LBA Group, Inc., announced the next generation of economical AM isocoupler hardware for collocating low power broadcast facilities on AM towers. The LBA research and development team has improved upon the long trusted CAMI™ and CAMIMAX™ with the release of the new CAMI500™, CAMI1800™, and CAMI5000™. While the three new models replace the CAMI™ and CAMIMAX™, LBA will still support the legacy models which are in use around the world.

This new line of AM isolation solutions creates more options and opportunities for AM broadcasters to use or offer their towers to meet the increased demand for placement of low power broadcast facilities. Get more information on the CAMI500™, CAMI1800™, and CAMI5000™ at: https://www.lbagroup.com/products/cami-am-tower-isocoupler.

The world of low power VHF/UHF broadcasting continues to evolve rapidly. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will soon be relocating thousands of low power TV and TV translators that were displaced to free up auctioned spectrum. The FCC is also granting large numbers of FM translators for use by AM stations and new low power FM licenses. All of these type transmission facilities can easily use AM broadcast towers with one of the three new, economical, and rugged LBA AM isocouplers.

“Feedback and demand from within the industry helped the LBA research and development team refine our original and successful CAMI’s into three even more flexible, attractive, and cost effective units,” LBA Chief Operating Officer Mike Britner said.

The CAMI500™, CAMI1800™, or CAMI5000™ can be chosen for the appropriate application to handle typical FM or TV power to 5000 watts. These isocouplers also allow a transmission line at any frequency, from DC – 3GHz, to “jump” the AM base insulator without affecting either service.

These three new CAMI™ models offer more convenient power ratings and new connector options have also been introduced. Type N connectors are standard on the CAMI500™, either Type N or 7/16 DIN connectors are available for the CAMI1800™, and a choice of 7/16 DIN or 7/8 EIA connectors are available on the CAMI5000™.
