Broadcast Transmitter Sites
We build broadcast transmitting sites turn-key. We can do it all from conception to design to placing you on the air. Let us help you select the best location for your site; determine the optimum antenna and transmitter combination for the most competitive signal. We can help you deploy your HD and HD2 systems from the studio to the STL to the listener. We build everything from the LPFM and translator sites to the high power AM & FM sites. Engineering staffs today are many times stretched to the limit. We can supply highly trained extra man-power to compliment your team for large projects when you just need a little help. We rebuild older sites - replacing transmitter and antenna systems to improve reliability and improve the quality of your service. Many times newer generation equipment installed properly can even reduce operational cost. We can provide Weekly, Monthly, or Quarterly maintenance of your sites. We will inspect transmitter / antenna performance, tower and building condition, making repairs and recommendations along the way. Because preventing problems costs less than repairing them after they fail.
Broadcast studios come in all sizes and styles. From the “home” production or broadcast studios to the Major Market / Network and everything in between. Adding or replacing studio equipment? We have experience with most products saving time and headaches during setup. We can make equipment recommendations before you buy to help steer you in the right direction. The engineers at BW have designed and constructed world class studios for some of the biggest radio groups in the largest markets in America. But don’t let that intimidate you, all our projects get our full attention and respect at a competitive price no matter how large or small.

Accessing and managing trained and respected tower crews, we can ensure no matter the size and scope of your tower project it will be completed with quality and professionalism. We have the resources available to ensure your project is completed safely, and efficiently.
Signal & Coverage Analysis - Is your signal fully reaching your target audience? Is your station causing interference on another station? These are things you need to know. BW has the test gear and expertise to check and make corrections when necessary.
Satellite & Audio Networks - BW can design, build and maintain your Satellite, T1 and Audio-Over-IP networks to deliver programming, shows and sports across the country.
Equipment Acquisition - Planning, Sourcing, and Comparing equipment can be very time consuming and covered in RED TAPE. We can make recommendations, shop for the best prices, and even help line up financing to purchase and install your new equipment. Your projects will run that much smoother.
- Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Recovery
Broadcasters have learned a lot from the storms of the last decade. Hurricanes and other weather related phenomenon, as well as building problems, and aging equipment can cause a station to have to operate in harsh conditions. Let us help you plan to weather the storm and stay on the air.
- HD Radio (IBOC)
Broadcast Works engineers have attended the High Definition Digital Radio training course at the Harris facilities in Quincy, IL.
The High Definition Digital Radio program is an exhaustive 5-day class to provide the student with an understanding of the technology and real-world capabilities of HD Radio broadcasting.
