A two-hop microwave link transporting one video channel for a total distance of 65 Kms has been installed in the Mexican resort town of Cancun to carry one TV channel from the Cancun TV station to Playa del Carmen, where it feeds a re-transmitting station broadcasting over the areas around Playa del Carmen and the island of Cozumel.
The link was implemented by installing two TVLINKS in series. The transmitter was installed in Cancun at a height of 80 meters and it feeds a relay station in Puerto Morelos, where a receiver and a second transmitter are mounted on a 28 meter tower. The second receiver is at Playa del Carmen at a height of 50 meters.
Ing. Melvin Gonzalez, Chief Engineer of Televisora Cancun, said that “The microwave link has been a complete success. It has been operating since the day it was installed with a very good quality signal and excellent reliability.”
