About Us

RF2Spare is owned and operated by broadcasters with a combined experience of over 50 years in station management and ownership.  Beginning with our formation in 2012 RF2Spare has concentrated on building an inventory of transmitter equipment available for lease literally on a moments notice.  From a 30 watt exciter to a 25 kilowatt transmitter; from two weeks to four years, we've leased it all.  We have a warehouse of parts from older transmitters, if you need something no longer available from the manufacturer.  Consider us your business partner, your contract engineer, and your equipment supplier, all rolled into one.  When you really need one, RF2Spare is there with your spare! 

RF2Spare, LLC

Maintaining your existing platform when parts are unavailable through normal distribution channels. We have assorted end of life, discontinued, and obsolete parts and can upgrade certain assemblies. . 

RF2Spare can assist your station in filing for class and channel upgrades; area-to-locate studies and maps; and interference studies.  Click here for examples.


RF2Spare occasionally purchases used transmitters for reconditioning and resale.  All units are sold on an as-is basis.

We're There With Your Spare!

 

At RF2Spare, we know that when your transmitter is down your business is down, which is why we offer leased transmitters in flyaway cases ready to ship in as quick as two hours.  RF2Spare also provides engineering services to make sure you stay FCC compliant while using one of our emergency transmitters.  Protect your station from extended outages that can cause a loss of advertiser confidence and huge operating losses.  Stay on the air for a fraction of a cost of owning a spare transmitter that you might never need.  Get credit pre-approval for faster shipping.  Call 314-305-8571 or e-mail us at info@rf2spare.com today!


RF2Spare is committed to creating and maintaining strong relationships with broadcasters, built on a foundation of excellence and trust. From the transmitters we lease to our dedicated customer service and support, we know what’s important to you.

Service and Upgrades



Solid state devices have changed a lot in 30 years!  In 1980, 50 watts out of a single discrete device was a stretch.  35 years later we're at 500 watts and counting!  At RF2Spare, we specialize in custom replacements of older solid state amplifier modules with newer, higher power and more efficient "pallet" amplifiers.

Client Satisfaction

"With less than a month to go on our construction permit, we thought we were out of luck when our new transmitter order got delayed.  Our operating parameters required us to have at least a 15 kilowatt transmitter and we got lucky when we contacted RF2Spare.  They had a 25 kilowatt ready to go and after a quick re-tune and setup, it was on our site three days later!  We've had it for a month and will probably have it for one more.  RF2Spare saved the day...and the CP!"

"We had a major rebuild to do on our older BE FM30.  We turned to RF2Spare and they shipped us a 3000watt solid state transmitter along with all the coax adapters and cables we needed.  It was plug and play...they even sent a remote control cable for our Sicon remote site controller!"

A new 500 watt pallet amplifier ready to be installed in a BE 250 watt IPA chassis.  This modification allows one IPA to fully drive a BE25/30/35 kilowatt transmitter without the complexity of the original Wilkenson splitters and combiners.  Mounted on the original 250 watt amplifier heatsink, this upgrade is pin for pin compatible with the original, and offers increased efficiency, much better VSWR tolerance and lower drive requirements!
