Dear Mark Mueller,
Today, Harris announced its decision to divest the Broadcast Communications business. I fully support this decision and believe that the timing is right for both Harris and Broadcast Communications.
Harris has supported us by investing in our business, allowing us to develop some of the market’s most innovative, solution-based technologies. However, over time the Broadcast Communications business has become less aligned with the Harris core businesses and long term strategy.
Operating independently or as part of a broadcast or media-focused enterprise will provide us with strategic investment, increased competitive flexibility, and customer focus to lead the continuing transformation in this competitive marketplace.
The decision to divest in no way reflects the quality of the work Broadcast Communications performed in support of our customers and our company. Harris simply determined that Broadcast Communications could provide higher value and operate more effectively under a different ownership model.
In the interim, Broadcast Communications will continue to be a part of Harris Corporation and operate business as usual. Our valued relationships, both longstanding and new, remain our top priority. The global Broadcast Communications team will continue to work diligently to ensure our commitment to our customers and partners remains steadfast, our execution to fulfill commitments is flawless, and our progress against strategic objectives remains focused.
Please feel free to contact any of the global team, including me, should you have any questions regarding this announcement.
Thank you for your continued support.
President, Broadcast Communications Division

As far as new rigs i've seen:
High Powered Stations
Harris (I've seen a few new HPX series out there)
BEs (but NOT many of them. VERY few new ones in-fact)
Low Powered Stations
I haven't seen a new Continental install anywhere. And I have it on good word that they haven't sold any rig to any US broadcaster in quite some time.
