Looking for RFTech MM-3000B Documentation

Looking for RFTech MM-3000B Documentation

Looking for RFTech MM-3000B Documentation

(OP)
I am assisting a television station in Malawi, Africa with the installation of a Studio to Transmitter Link (STL) Microwave System. MACRA (Malawi's Telecommunications Regulatory Authority) has requested to see the transmitter, as well as any appropriate documentation as a prerequisite to licensing.

However, the Transmitter is a RFTech MM-3000B transmitter, which has been out of production for 12 years. In addition, RFTech was purchased by Vislink, based in Massachusetts, USA. I contacted their tech support, and they have no documentation at all. sad

Does anyone in this forum have any documentation for this system, or know anything at all about the transmitter. We think that all they really want to know is the power output of the transmitter.

Thank you in advance for any information that you can give me.

since it was a MA, USA firm, it is possible it was approved for use in the USA. If so there might be a manual and/or test report on file at the FCC. Look for an FCC ID number on the equipment. If you find it..u are in luck. Enter it here:
