The University awarded a contract for a digital broadcating transmitter to Larcan USA, Inc., Faribault, MN, for $346,000.
This award is for the purchase of a Larcan Digital 30K W VHF Solid State Transmitter. This will be the second Larcan transmitter since the original Larcan Landmark transmitter was purchased in 2001. This additional equipment will provide an upgrade to the digital transmission currently operating at 50 percent to full operating power.

These television transmitters are highly proprietary and complex devices and each manufacturer takes a different tact in the design of their transmitters. One manufacturer's amplifier will not work with another manufactuer''s transmitter. The compatibility of the equipment is a paramount consideration, therefore, purchasing the Larcan transmitter directly from the manufacturer is the only economically feasible method.

There will be two purchase orders issued from different funding sources to meet this request.
