The experimenter that has the same exact SainSonic AX-05B version as I do got 1300 feet. Your saying 4 x 700 we’ll say that is 2800 feet. Far more than the SainSonic facing smack dab in front of a window but at first floor. So that would mean two of the possibilities. 1. The revised version of the SainSonic me and the experimenter has at high power is far less than 500mW. Maybe closer to 1mW as suggested earlier in the form somewhere that the Whole House FM Transmitter 3.0 and Decade are 1mW at high power. This also explains why the transmitter stays cold metal at the high setting. Just want to clear up a theory I have. Evidently the manual I have lied a little as it was not updated and still says 500mW for high. Maybe 1mW or 5mW but can’t be 500mW as that would go a mile or more according to all the tests. If 18 nano watts goes 800 feet into a rubber duck it would not take 500 mW to go 1300 feet. Not even close to it. My math sucks but I’m not that stupid. Anyway I think the 4x 800ft will be 2400 feet. If we get the legal 2400 feet looks like I’ll buy a new Transmitter. Maybe try for a used Decade or maybe not worry about it since 1300 feet is good enough for me and what is an extra 700 feet till the transmitter dies. By then the prices will have gone down and better transmitters will be made. I think we can get this legal and everyone should be happy with 4×700 feet. If not there is no hope in your future.
