Smile FM Radio Network
“I am the Business Manager and Network Engineer for the Smile FM Radio Network. Smile FM Owns and operates 21 NCE stations in Michigan and we currently own 16 Elenos transmitters. Running Elenos transmitters save us an average of about 27% on our electric bills compared to the same sized tube transmitters. It saves us an average of about 13% compared to other solid state transmitters of the same size. I also do engineering for several commercial stations and a couple of them have Elenos transmitters and report similar savings on electric bills”
In the last years we bought many Elenos transmitters.
After going on air, we tried to link Elenos transmitters to our monitoring system (Algorab Aube) and use transmitter’s and Echos6’s web interfaces to execute manual change operations. We discovered that the MIB file describing SNMP points was not complete and the web interface was not so easy to use.
Elenos helped us with a new firmware version of Ebox, now we have it running on all our transmitter. New web interface has got many new features
Wyoming Public Radio
Wyoming Public Radio has a new Elenos transmitter installed at their site in Rawlins, Wyoming. Engineer Shane Toven said that this was one of the easiest and most trouble free transmitter installations he have done. Kudos to the staff of Elenos/305 for making this happen.

Original text: “Notre société a fait confiance à Elenos pour alimenter ses émetteurs pour nos radios FM – émetteurs de 500w et de 1kw, nous en sommes très satisfait et on vous recommande ce matériel de qualité, et le service après vente est très réactif ce qui est aussi important.“
Translation: “Our company relies on Elenos to power our FM radio with 500w and 1kw transmitter, we are very satisfied and we recommend you this quality equipment and the after sales service is very responsive, which is also important.“
We are from Radio Zenith and we Broadcast in CYPRUS.
For the last 15 years we have been using a 5KW Tube Transmitter from Elenos and even today it is in a very good condition.
Recently we replaced the 5KW tube transmitter with an Elenos ET10000 Solid State Transmitter. We have been astonished from the technological evolution of Elenos. It is unbelievably clever, efficient and stable equipment. We were highly impressed from the Telemetry System. It is possible to do everything from your office computer, or from a laptop. You can alsoadjust the output power remotely of your transmitter for each and every hour of the day so that during low listening hours by reducing the output power you economize on your mains bills dramatically.
The Elenos Service Department is described with one word “Perfect”. They are simply professionals who can help you whenever is needed.
For us ELENOS is again ELENOS and for ever ELENOS.
Luis Gerardo Cortes
“The ELENOS transmitter is very simple to install, easy to operate, very stable and good quality sound . When it arrived I sent it to Veracruz and the engineer installed, connected and put it on air without any problem. Low electricity consumption, very compact and it does not requires a lot of cooling. Practically Plug and Play”

“Elenos systems are clear, simple and standard. Elenos Transmitters are strong, adapter supports much more than the amount of electricity needed by the transmitter, efficiency is at top level in any power condition. All the transmitter are temperature resistant and keep working even in case of failures. The display and the menu are clear and easy to use.” (original text in spanish)
We have installed ELENOS equipment for our station RADIO MONDO, the machines are very reliable and have not disappointed our expectations.
During installation, we noted the ease with which the operators moved the equipment, easy is also the use! Elenos staff, serious and reliable, which you can call for any need, offers valuable assistance in any situation. Our satisfaction with these products is equal to 100%, so we decided to buy them to replace all old equipment in each of our repeaters. With ELENOS equipment we are sure to have a innovative and young radio.

We are Elenos customers using 10KW FM transmitters on our strategic sites because of the reliability. In fact we are talking with the Elenos to assist us to Digital migration. We will use Elenos equipment for signal testing.

The assistance is a huge achievement and also by telephone, in real time, you can solve many problems. The devices are functional and are “always” in the most inaccessible and unlikely environmental conditions: we say that reliability is in first place in the machinery and Elenos through diagnostics and interaction (simple) remote, these machines are simple and powerful . It ‘so easy to interact with machines that just a simple SMS to do a lot of operations. Among other things, very good diagnostics, enables not only that it never stops but also to prevent failures in the sense that the sensors indicate problems even before they prove to be harmful, permitting operations in advance. Beyond that spare parts are very common in the sense that for the same series are all the same so if you “take the hand” to operate a machine, take it all.
Director of Engineering
My name is Tom Erickson. I am the Director of Engineering for the K-JAZZ Radio Network and Station Manager of KJZK-FM, a new Non-Commercial Educational station in Kingman, Arizona, located on Route 66 about an hour from Las Vegas. KJZK-FM covers three counties, three states, two time zones (in season) and numerous prairie-dog colonies in Western Arizona.
I purchased an Elenos radio broadcast transmitter for 90.9 XHRYA, an FM station in Reynosa, Mexico, just across the Texas–Mexico border. The transmitter was installed with a simple and straightforward installation and has been working flawlessly. It is a relatively new, remarkably compact series of FM solid-state transmitters, available in power levels of 2 kW, 3.5 kW and now 5 kW. Space is always a premium at transmitter sites, so the compact overall size was a factor in our choice.
In Dunes we made the decision to replace our current transmitter. We looked at all the 5 kW units on the market, and it was apparent from the outset that the ETG5000 was our winner. We were impressed with the initial look at the 2009 NAB Show and in looking more closely we became overwhelmed by the features. The unit is very compact, only 4 rack-units high, and the chassis is all stainless steel. It can be powered by either three-phase or single-phase power and it comes with all the useful connections for standard remote control functions and direct PC interfacing.
I was immediately struck by the look of the machine and by the economic conditions. The result was really amazing: a machine with a very valuable return / consumption ratio – comparing to a similar tube – Intuitive and easy to use, once installed, you forget. With the same heating system, refurbished with new cables, the cover has a density absolutely better than before.
Do not underestimate the technical assistance.. highest quality, courtesy, availability and expertise.

What do you think about ELENOS products?
I liked, of what I have seen, the statements were spectacular, indeed! I saw things that I had never seen that particular issue of the issuer that works at high temperatures, and maintains its normal performance. I also appreciated the short circuit in the antenna which we provoked, and all continue to work, only the transmitter is turned off and then turns on, without suffering any damage. I am very pleased with the ELENOS products. I have now an ELENOS transmitter in my radio station and since we have it, we have achieved much better results than what we had been.
So you think it is a reliable machine to advise to other stations?
We have in fact achieved good results and had an excellent support from ELENOS, so it makes sense that others may come to acquire such equipment.

Radio Maria — World Family
Elenos products are very reliable and service is superb. We have placed the transmitters in extremely harsh environments. I have even enduring extremely high temperatures in Saharan Africa. Knowing they are reliable and that if something goes wrong you can count on excellent service, is of vital importance to Radio Maria.
In addition to the high temperatures, Elenos transmitters are installed by non-technical people who are not familiar with broadcast equipment. The ease of installation, operation, and finally I repeat, reliability, are things that are very important to us. We had a problem in Tanzania and Elenos technical help was immediately on the phone, helping us to solve the problem … and we succeeded. These things are very important because our radio stations must always work!
