The Double Deluxe Complete Radio Station Package takes our most popular radio package – the Deluxe Package, and doubles up on key items such as the studio mixer, transmitter and reporter kits, to give you more of most important items in the package, which can be used either to expand your facilities or as back up equipment just in case.
Two Identical On Air / Production Studios!
This package includes all the equipment you need to start broadcasting, with two identical studios that can be used for ON AIR and production purposes, to create live and / or pre-recorded content. Two identical studios means seamless switching from one show to the next: one show can set up and be ready to go while the other is still on the air. And since they are identical, your presenters will no have trouble working in either studio.
D & R AIRMATE USB Mixer
At the heart of each studio in the Double Deluxe Complete Radio Station Package is the D & R Airmate USB mixer. Designed and built in the Netherlands, the Airmate USB has 8 channels with up to 22 inputs, including 6 microphones, 12 stereo line inputs, 2 USB send / return channels and 2 built-in telephone hybrids. The Airmate USB mixer is in use in over 3200 radio stations around the world, including many built by RadioActive engineers. It is a sturdy, user-friendly workhorse of a mixer, designed with presenters with a range of experiences and skill-levels in mind.
Rode Procaster Microphones
Rode make some of the world’s best microphones for broadcast, TV, recording and conference applications. We are proud to include four Rode Procaster dynamic mics as standard in each our Double Deluxe package studios (8 in total) and the Rode Reporter mic as part of our reporter kits, 6 of which are included in this package.
2 GSM Hybrids
Included as standard are two GSM hybrids, which allow you to receive phone calls using a mobile phone simcard, directly into the mixer, without having to connect a mobile phone. These are particularly useful in areas with no landline connections.
2 Editing Workstations
The Double Deluxe Complete Radio Station Package also comes with 2 editing workstations, with laptops, editing software, headphones, a single microphone, speakers and a soundcard so that your journalists / presenters can record, listen to and edit their audio content befored sending it over the network to be played on air.
6 Tascam Portable Reporter Kits
The Double Deluxe Complete Radio Station Package comes with 6 portable reporter kits, which include a Tascam DR40 handheld recorder, a Rode Reporter microphone, a pair of Beyerdynamic DT231 headphones, a rechargeable battery charger with batteries and a bag to keep all the kit safe in, big enough to include a laptop if needed. Please note that the laptop is sold separately.
600W FM Transmitter with Built-in Audio Processor and a backup transmitter!
The Double Deluxe Complete Radio Station Package does not scrimp on the transmission side, coming as standard with 2 BW Broadcast TX600 V2 600W FM Transmitters, with built-in audio processor, to give you the edge on sound quality over rival stations. The TX feeds a 4 bay dipole antenna system with a 70m 1/2″ RF Coaxial cable to give your broadcast added reach. Please note we can increase the power of your transmitter or the number of antennas or add a backup transmitter at your request.
We also provide an identical backup transmitter in case your primary one has a fault and needs repair, so that you won’t be off for more than a few seconds while you switch from one to the other.
Large Coverage Area
With this antenna system raised up to 60m above flat ground you should expect to reach at 55km in all directions, possibly further. Contact us with the coordinates of your antenna site and we will give you a computer modelled prediction of your coverage area. This normally costs £25 per prediction plot, but we will take this fee off the cost of the package if you place an order.
