WLDR-FM, Traverse City, Michigan: Shared Aperture FM Antenna

This 1,000-foot tower support WLDR-FM’s ERI Model SHPX-8BCSP/LP-6C-SP Shared Aperture FM antenna. The antenna is an interleaved array made up of a high power 8-bay SHPX Series ROTOTILLER® for the analog FM signal and a low power Model LPX-7C ROTOTILLER® for the digital HD Radio™ signal. To provide additional isolation the antennas are cross polarized, the analog signal has right hand circular polarization and the digital is left hand circularly polarized.
