For many broadcasters, the Marti name is synonymous with remote gear. Just about every station has owned a “Marti” at one time or another to carry remote broadcasts back to the studio.


It all started in 1947, when George W. Marti obtained an FCC license to build radio station KCLE in Cleburne, Texas. His experiences operating the station led to an idea for a portable VHF transmitter capable of sending high-quality radio programming from a temporary remote location to a receiver located at the studio.


The remote pickup unit (RPU) remains today one of the staples of radio for electronic newsgathering.


Marti Electronics, Inc. was formally established in 1960 to manufacture RPUs. Additional products added to the Marti line over the decades include microwave studio-to-transmitter links (STLs) and antennas. In 1994, the company was sold to Broadcast Electronics to continue its tradition of quality manufacturing and support.
