Established in 1969, Nautel has over 50 years experience in creating highly innovative products and has earned a reputation as a world leader in the design, manufacture, sales and support of high power, solid state RF products for radio broadcast.
More than 16,000 customers in 177 countries rely on Nautel’s RF solutions — systems that meet stringent quality standards at our ISO 9001 registered manufacturing facilities in Canada and U.S.A., and perform in harsh climates ranging from arctic, to desert, to jungle.
Today, Nautel offers the world’s broadest portfolio of solid state digital and analog radio transmitters with models ranging from 1 kW to 2,000 kW MW and 300 W to 88 kW FM. We were the first manufacturer to offer commercial DRM+ transmitters and lead the way in HD Radio innovation.
Shively Labs was founded in 1963 by radio electronic pioneer, Ed Shively. Ed was instrumental in the development of FM and TV antennas and combiners for RCA, and later Dielectric Communications, where he served as head of its research and development team. In 1963, Shively founded Shively Labs, where he developed a full line of FM broadcast antennas and combiners as well as developed specialized RF equipment and techniques for both military and civilian customers. In 1980, Shively merged his business into Howell Laboratories where he remained active until his retirement eight years later.
The combination of Shively’s innovative RF engineering capabilities with Howell’s experience designing to demanding Military Specifications and manufacturing under tight process controls has given Shively an uncommon ability to manufacture broadcast antennas for the world’s most extreme weather environments.
Today Shively Labs continues to sell and service equipment to customers in over 100 countries around the world from our engineering and manufacturing facility in Bridgton, Maine.
