KUHF/KUHT in Houston Texas have awarded Jampro Antennas / AlanDick Broadcast a major antenna contract. This is to supply and install both new FM and TV antennas.
This contract includes the AlanDick ADB-VHF-II-8 high-power elliptically polarized, (EPOL) lambda antenna. This product will deliver a directional signal for the KUHF FM station that will serve the Houston market.
