Industrial Visit - AIR

An Industrial visit to AIR,Avadi had been planned and the students of third year ECE-‘A’ visited the organisation on 18th September and ECE-B on 11th October 2012.They were accompanied by Ms.K.Srividhya, Ms.R.Kousalya and Mr.S.R.Balasubramaniam on 18th September and by Mr.M.K.Varadarajan and Ms.B.Hemalatha on 11th October.
Students were split into two batches and were taken to have a look at the 3 transmitter buildings at this site.
Students were also briefed about the working of the 3 transmitters as a whole, by the staff of AIR. The students got a very clear idea about the working and maintainance of the transmitters  as was explained at the site.
All India Radio – Madras was inaugurated on 16 June 1938. The studios are near the beach in Mylapore. The MW & SW transmitters are presently located at Avadi, about 25 kms away from Chennai in a 275 acre site. Its peripheral wall is about 7 kms long. Students had to pass through security checks at 3 places to enter the transmitter building.
In the first building which is about 1 km away from the main entrance, are two SW transmitters. On the way one can see large antennas.
In one room is the 50 kW BEL HHB 144 transmitter made by Bharat Electronics, Bangalore and commissioned in 1994. It is used for the A channel programs on 4920 & 7160 kHz.
In the next room is a 100 kW BBC SK 51F3 transmitter made by British Brown Boveri and commissioned on 19 Feb 1985. Currently it operates on 7270 kHz with test broadcasts of AIR FM Gold programs relayed from New Delhi received via satellite. Later it is proposed to be used for the new AIR news channel.

The 2nd transmitter building is about half a km away from the SW building. In this building there are the 2x10 kW BEL HMB 163 MW transmitters operating on 783 kHz with Vividh Bharati programs which were commissioned on 14 October 1994. Next to it is a 20 kW Harris DX20 MW transmitter operating on 1017 kHz with B channel programs which was commissioned on 17 October 2001. These two transmitters use the same self radiating mast antenna of 91.5 Meters using the Diplexing System.
About quarter of a km away is the third building in which there are the 2x100 kW BEL HMB 140 MW transmitters operating on 720 kHz. There is also a 10 kW NEC MB124C transmitter which is used as standby.
As the transmitter site is near the open land they use directional antenna to beam towards the mainland. For this, the main self radiating mast tower is 148 Meters high while the reflector tower is of 122 Meters. There is standby generator for the 10 kW NEC transmitter.
Programs on 5 channels from the studios are received by Studio to Transmitter Link on 1440 MHz and some programs are also received by Satellite.
Thus the main difference between SW and MW transmitters were emphasized by the AIR staff
Students were also shown the feeder lines, antenna tuning room and the antennas specific for SW and MW transmitters.
SW antennas are supported by towers whereas the MW antennas are themselves self-radiating masts.
The current details of AIR Chennai programs are as follows:
A 720 kHz 2x100 kW (10 kW Standby)
B 1017 kHz 20 kW
C 783 kHz 2x10 kW (Vividh Bharati)
FM I 107.1 MHz 2x5 kW (FM Rainbow)
FM II 105.0 MHz 5 kW (FM Gold)
SW 4920, 7160 kHz 50 kW
SW 7270 kHz 100 kW (Tests) As a whole, students acquired a practical knowledge of the present communication system, which they had studied theoretically as a subject in the previous as well as the current semesters. Students completely utilized the visit and gained a deeper knowledge in the subject.
