And to have been able to transmit 4 1/2 miles your output would have had to exceed 5 watts and if your on an inside antenna you would have had to use a aluminum antenna. And if that were true you would not have had to use several part 15 transmitters in a network to get to that range. Boy some are way off key here. A 1 watt transmitter will go 1/2 to 1 mile on an indoor antenna but certainly not 4 1/2 miles unless you have one hell of an antenna with some serious gain which would have been an outside antenna. I’m more concerned with wrather you would ever be able to transmit part 15 again. If it was because your on 87.9 MHz was that included in your NOUO and what was your field strength on the NOUO? Usually the notice tells you what your field strength was but I did read some citations that referenced 87.9 as illegal that didn’t have a field strength.
Carl the AM Stereo experiment is interesting to me a little bit. Still think I’d be tooting my own horn if I went AM and around here the hydro noise is more than any listener would be willing to bare. In some cases the buzz buzz even affects FM as you can hear it from time to time here. So that in mind AM is something unusable here. But it could prove reason in an arguement for stronger part 15 usable AM transmitters.
