Interferance Study
Locations of the proposed station and its existing adjacent and co-channel stations
Operating Frequency in Wavelength
Wavelength (λ) = velocity of light/ frequency
= (3 x 108 m/s)/ 864 kHz
= 347.222 m
= 1139.1805 ft

Minimum Vertical Height
From Graph (See Graph A)
HT = 76 m
= 249.3438 ft.
Antenna Height in Wavelength
HTW = HTft/ λft
where:
HTW = antenna height in wavelength
HTft = antenna height in feet
λft = wavelength (ft)
thus,
HTW = 249.3438 ft / 1139.1805 ft
HTW = 0.2189

Antenna Height in Degrees
H° = HTW x 360°
where:
H° = antenna height in degree
HTW = antenna height in wavelength
thus,
H° = 0.2189 x 360°
H° = 78.804 °

RECOMMENDATIONS
After the proponents had studied the proposed AM Broadcasting Station design, the following recommendations were formulated:
1. In the selection of the antenna site, the location must be considered in relation to the population to be served and to other communication installations and airports. Furthermore, the conductivity of the soil and the path between the site and target area must also be taken into consideration.

2. Proper integration of materials and other equipment is necessary during the implementation and optimization of the station’s functionality.
3. For the acoustic consideration, the proposed acoustic design can be improved. The rooms in the station can be treated according to what is wanted or necessary, provided that the required reverberation time is met for each room.

4. Also, the design would serve as reference for future AM broadcasting station design researchers.
CONCLUSION

1. The proposed AM broadcasting station, DZRX Radyo Relax in Tarlac city, designed to operate at 864 KHz frequency and at 10 kW transmitter output power to provide services for the provinces of Pampanga, Pangasinan, and nearby provinces.

2. The proposed station has one (4) co-channel station, seven (7) +/- 9 kHz adjacency station and five (5) +/- 18 kHz. The interference study was conducted only on the existing adjacent stations. The study, in turn, showed that the proposed station feasible in terms of the absence of signal interference.
3. Another important parameter considered in this design is the plan of the building and the integration of proper broadcast equipment. Proper Acoustical Treatment needs to be considered in order to provide the desired reverberation time particularly in the announcer’s booth where the sound is transmitted originates.

4. With all the above mentioned conditions, this AM design promises to be a feasible, effective and reliable tool for any relevant procedures in line with AM broadcastings well as radio broadcasting.
