SWR Inc. began in 1968 as a service company supervising RF installations and performing field warranty work for broadcast stations in the U.S. At that time transmission lines could not handle the high power requirements of the growing UHF market. In 1972, SWR developed, tested and patented its first Thermo-coupled rigid coaxial line that made all others obsolete. It was truly a System with Reliability.
The new line not only met UHF installation requirements, but also met the needs of the growing FM radio transmission market.
The Thermo-couple rigid coaxial line, otherwise known as K-line, began a series of firsts for SWR. In 1972, we were the first to offer a two-year warranty on transmission line and the first, in 1990, to provide a five-year limited parts and labor warranty on antennas and transmission systems.
In 1985, SWR began marketing its first high power Clarion Waveguide Antenna and Posi-Lock Waveguide for UHF applications. Then, in 1990, we introduced a complete line of FM antennas and LPTV antennas for low and medium-power television transmitters.
Today, we offer a complete line of UHF, VHF, FM antennas and passive transmission systems. All of our products are backed by the same high reliability standards that are our company's namesake.
Our company will continue to put reliability first as we provide the broadcast industry with innovative, reliable; cost-effective solutions.
