Algerian broadcaster Télédiffusion d’Algérie has enlisted Switzerland-based company Ampegon to install shortwave transmission systems at two sites in Bechar and Ouargla. These new transmitters will enable TDA to broadcast shortwave without utilizing third-party vendors, says the company. Ampegon will develop turnkey solutions at both sites including two 300 kW shortwave transmitters, two shortwave antenna systems and civil works. The project is estimated to be completed at the end of 2016. Ampegon, in cooperation with Transradio, previously installed a 1.5 MW longwave transmission system in Algeria near Tipaza, and is presently modernizing two medium-wave transmitter stations in Bechar and Oulet Fayed.
