SmartGen Micro Basic RDS/RBDS Encoder

SmartGen "Micro" Encoder is a quick and inexpensive way to have an RDS/RBDS available. The SmartGen "Micro" is able to transmit basic RDS information such as the Program Service name(PS), Program Identification(PI), Alternative Frequencies(AF), Program Type(PTY). Decoder Information and Music / Speech flag are also supported. USB connectivity makes it easy to program the non-volatile memory using any PC and the supplied Windows® software. After programming, the unit should be disconnected and re-installed on the transmitter site. Though it is not capable of "dynamic" messaging of the song titles, SmartGen "Micro" will identify your station by format, displaying your station's "street name", continuously transmitting any station promo or advertising message to your listeners.
