General Overview

The Digital Reading Service Receiver (RRS1100) was specially designed for use by reading services and their blind and visually impaired listeners, as a better and easier way to receive broadcasts using the new digital signal (ATSC).

To get started, your listener simply needs access to a standard AC power plug and an antenna. The receiver does not require connection to a television.

Like all DTV receivers, the Digital Reading Service Receiver (RRS1100) requires connection to an antenna to receive the digital audio broadcasts. The type and power of antenna needed will depend on the users proximity to the transmit tower.

Antennas are not included in the purchase price of the receiver, but they can be ordered through us for whole sale pricing. Please contact us for more information on ordering antennas.
