The initial tests will just be in my house to get it
working. There are 5 FM channels in the 49 MHz
band. I would like to operate between two channels
if possible. So, instead of 49.86 or 49.875 – I would
(hopefully, eventually) modify the units to be on 49.8675 (if my math is
correct.) This will be independent of any other
AM or FM transmissions from my station. My station audio
chain will feed the 49 MHz transmitter the same way it feeds
any of my other transmitters. The 49 MHz
transmitter will be upstairs in my house for now.
The solar powered 49 MHz receiving unit and the FM transmitter
will be in a little box with solar panels on the side facing the
sun and have transmitting and receiving antennas. The idea is
that is could be put anywhere. I want to put it high up in a
neighbor’s tree, about 800 feet from my house.
Because my programming is old jazz, big band, and old radio
shows, fidelity (or lack thereof), will not be a big deal.
I have to go – but I will tell you more when I can.
