This IS a pretty sexy looking package. But, when I got to the price of the transmitter, the bells and whistles went off. There are lots of “Talking House” transmitters in service all over the country. However, for the Part 15 broadcaster some of the equipment (if you are NOTa school) is not acceptable under some sections of Part 15. If you use the built-in antenna you are probably OK. If you use the ATU and feedline included in the complete package, you will be in excess of the 3 meters allowed under the regulations. They can offer the external antenna/ATU and feedline to schools because they fall under a different section of Part 15 than other Part 15 broadcasters.
For the money, (unless you can find a used unit) there are other transmitters that will provide just as good or better audio for the same or less money. The SSTran or the Rangemaster transmitters will certainly do a better job of broadcasting with out the unneeded internal stuff in the ActRadio unit.
Bottom line: never used one, probably never will due to the company’s reluctance to tell you the real technical parameters on their web site. And even though this is a great LOOKING unit, mounting next to the antenna outdoors could be a real challenge.
