Power Broadcasting Broadcasting Consultation Section



 



Fee Structure (separate internal page)



 



Power Broadcasting baseline consultation provides

  • 5 target cities or 2 target regions (more available on request, 250 USD per each additional city)
  • Transmitter antennas narrowed to 2 types (like HRS and LPH) and 2 variations (like HRS431 and HRS641) 
  • Power levels optimized for target region and your budgetary needs
  • Optimum seasonal frequencies ranges found
  • The consultation is not based on hours needed to complete the computations
  • Depending on the complexity of the analysis 2 or 3 weeks may be required to complete the computations
  • 31 working day turnaround, partial reports 15 working days will be available
  • Can work up to 90 days on "compelling projects"


 



Document delivery method

  • HTML text files with embedded images for intranet website, ready for www viewing
  • PNG (or GIF / JPEG if requested) images, images can be optimized for website and faxing purposes
  • The antennas and computational parameters chosen will be bundled with the data set
  • PDF delivery is possible, pending installation of the proper word processing tools.

HF Broadcasting's Demographic Issues

Shortwave has not been declining as a mass media market share, but since the 2000s fibre optic cables and the Internet have profoundly changed how Shortwave can and will be be used.


Technical FAQ

ITU CIRAF Zones :

The ITU CIRAF broadcasting "Zones" were created in the 1950s - 1960s to simplify the scheduling and targeting of high power Shortwave broadcasting transmissions.

All HF broadcast planning uses these CIRAF geographical designators for interoperability.

Amateur Radio Usergroups on HF use the Maidenhead Coordinate System, as do some national regulators for local broadcasting.

Policy statement

  • Power Broadcasting can design shortwave broadcast networks that are reasonably immune to jamming.
  • Jamming transmission systems and networks can be contracted as well.
  • Both kinds of services are offered so as to maintain corporate political neutrality.

-- ADDENDUM : Neither Australia nor NZ has left shortwave. Russia left this broadcast medium entirely after the Sochi Olympics, even though its geopolitical region is potentially more precarious than most Australasian nations.
