MICRO1700: I only see out of my left eye. I can tell light from dark on the right eye and sometimes see movement. My issue is the optic nerve. I have tunnel vision out of the left eye and read with an 8X magnifier as well as use the magnifier in Windows 8 (modified to look like Windows 7 with Classic Shell). It was the reason that I bought the Sainsonic. Sometimes I drop things and it was one of the reasons the transmitter I had in Michigan blew out. I didn’t notice after I bumped it that the antenna had came lose and when I powered it up all was well till I walked out of the room and the connection lost good contact. When I came back I smelled something and noticed I was no longer on the air. The transmitter had fried. So before I bouht the Sainsonic I wanted to make shot gun sure the antenna had a good connection. Even those BNC connectors had issues with being lose and could cause a transmitter’s final to melt. When I noticed you had to screw this connector in I said “This is the one I want!” and done some more reading. Now after I placed my order I quickly asked for the 75uS pre emphasis but I have no way to verify its true 75uS other than James saying “Yours is 75 uS pre emphasis No worries.” It does have a slight more base than other stations BUT NOT SO IT SUCKS HOWEVER but you can tell my station is not pro at times because it doesn’t modulate the same way and I also don’t push the modulation. James had told me not to try and make it as loud as a regular station or I’d overmodulate the transmitter and eventually cause the audio circuit to fail. He also reminded me that missuse is not covered in warrenty. And for those who are thinking of transmitting without an antenna Never Do That!! Some of the transmitters without finals you may get away with it but still I’d not do it. Now there is a HLLY transmitter with a variable 0-1 Watt and I thought of buying that it was the TX 01S but didn’t get any reviews of it and I was afraid of harmonics. And by the way speaking of watts I found that -48dbm equals 15.8 Nano Watts. I think I read where someone said the Whole House FM Transmitter 3.0’s part 15 setting is 18 Nano Watts. So the part 15 setting should be true part 15 as far as that goes. We all know the high power end in the USA is gray and even if you do deside to do it if you live in a Metro area its gonna get you busted really quick as the experimenter I know told me it would go 1/4 mile at that level. If your in a metro area at that power level you’re gonna get a complaint from an NAB station or possibly a Ham operator who is trying to win a tranceiver from the FCC. So especially in those areas you want to stay at -48dbm or 15 nano watts. And that 7 watt transmitter your talking about gets really Hot. Temperature wise I mean by Hot! the fan inside is cheap and will fail quickly. The antenna it comes with is telescoping and will transmit more than 20 miles Inside Your House on the second floor (Per Youtube Test Video). Bad reviews of this transmitter even came from Amazon and Youtube itself due to the poor quality of the circuit of this transmitter. SainSonic won’t sell it on their site and James and I had a talk about that unit. It was never supposed to be sold in the USA but Amazon is selling it and one person got injured due to the heat that transmitter puts out. 7 Watts Really? That is some crazy insane power to try on an inside antenna! Someone is gonna get a nasty RF burn when they accidentally tuch the antenna while their transmiting on High Power. I bet they’ll never do that again. I did that once on a CB and I never done it again lol. The wash out over the dial I bet is more than 150-200 feet I bet the first time someone done that for an hour they are gonna have the feds at their door with a bettering ram and guns drawn. Stupid insane I say. Even at the 1 Watt level that transmitter got Hot as well. It just sounds like pure junk and that is what gives all Chinese transmitters a bad rap. Some are POS’s like that one.
