Now big of an antenna are you talking about? A Transmitter like the SainSonic AX-05B does have a TNC connector where when the desplay of the transmitter faces you you hold the antenna in your hand and put it into the TNC connector and screw counter-clockwise. I probably could get a male TNC connector and have it fed into some RG8 coax into a circular antenna on top of my desk beside the window if they make such an antenna. Then if we get the permit I could run the 500mW and it may go a mile if I were to have been the one doing the experiment. Also in the experiment I saw it was Stereo and dropped off like a Rock and I mean a Rock after the 1/4 mile range. It was like the meant for that TX ot only to 1/4 mile. The FCC would have Loved it because if they were to give us that 1 mile they can rest asure that there is No Signal after X feet. I’ve never have expected a tx to go from nice Stereo to dead static within a few inches past the mark but that was what happened. The experimenter ever went further to see if the signal came back and it did not. Now if that TX was outside maybe a few feet up yea I am sure it would had went further but the experiment was meant for a rubber duck (or any inside antenna).
The experimenter could have not done mono because the TX was only a Stereo FM Transmitter. But again I was very happy with what I saw with it. How much further do you think it would have went if your saying Mono would have made all the difference?
Worst came to worst and I’d not want to TX Mono but I suppose I could have done a show half in extended Range Mono and half in Stereo. That would be if we get this thing passed. Would it also help to make sure our TX’s don’t cause interference with nearby channels? That I too don’t know if that would make that much difference. Then I’d have to ask would an Album Rocker listen to a Mono signal?
