The TM-100 is a very usuable antenna. But, you are wise not to use it in the location you mention.
I have a Ramsey FM-30B that I built. Full ouput for the kit is about 35 mw. At 1/3 full output on the rat-tail antenna, its signal gets out about 2 city blocks from a second story bedroom; the transmitter and antenna are sitting on an equipment rack in the studio, indoors.
So, with the TM-100 and a FM25 at full output on top of a hill…..uhhhhh, no. The FCC recommends a range of approx. 200 feet; or about what my station does. As far as the FSM, forget it. just turn down the transmitter output until you cover your 200 hundred feet and forget it. This shouldn’t be brain surgery.
