Technical Tour TT5
TT5 - 4 TIMES SQUARE BROADCAST COMMUNICATIONS
Built with an FM backup broadcast master antenna and provisions to add a DTV master antenna, 4 Times Square was carrying 5 FM stations when it opened in 1999. In 2002 following the 9/11 atrocity the building owners decided to enhance the facility with the capacity to serve all NYC TV and FM stations. Designed to operate 24/7, the facility is equipped with 5 megawatts of back-up power. Currently home to six TV and ten FM stations, this state-of-the-art facility is also utilized by MediaFlo and other communications companies to point microwave, broadband, Ku and C band downlinks as well as for ENG and RPU services.
Technical Tours are made available on a first come,
first served basis. Tickets can be purchased during normal
registration hours at the convention center.
