How do you plan to feed the xmtrs? (power and audio) Any leads to the source(s) is gonna mess ya up..
I’ll utilize the little roku units with a shoutcast stream to feed the audio, transmitter locations and power provided by local shops in exchange for free advertising.
I don’t know what you mean by “any leads tothe sources going to mess you up..” ..?
If possible you should also try carrier current..
I already have 3 transmitters as well as a fourth one coming soon.. I think the best route for me to take is to utilize what I already have, and have familiarity with..
….mount “repeaters” on utility poles along the main drag. Coax was strung to interconnect the “repeaters”.
I perceive no likelehood of obtaining permissions to string coax for 2 miles along the main drag.. and if I did see that as a possibilty, then I would probally use such a method to link the Rangemaster units.
Solar power each unit and rent a sideband from a local FM radio station to get content to them..
Cost prohibitted.. I can hardly afford my cigarettes and beer!
what brand transmitter?
Currently, two Rangemasters.. one which I bought used on ebay last year, but it arrived with a flaw.. works fine for aprox. 10 seconds then all power goes out, I’m going to inquire with Kieth on repairing it. I also have a third Rangemaster to arrive soon, which Artisian graciously held for me a month so I could work up the funds, which I have accomplished..
So, that’s three Rangemasters, and 1 SStan3000
…a coast town here in NorCal that has a gang of Hamiltons pretty much sitting on top of each other, and boy do they get out…
I highly suspect that to be a questionable install to say the least.. Sounds striking familiar to what was described in a couple NOUOs from a couple years ago.
Thanks for the replies.. Just to clarify the scenerio of my objective.. I’m talking about setting up 4 transmitters, ungrounded, each which cover their own limited individual area, each far enough from each other to cause interference with each other.. All with the same audio feed, all transmitting on the same frequency.
That way, when a tourist sees in a local publication, or on a flyer, or a sign: “For Tybee Island Information tune in on 1700AM” .. Then in most parts of the island they will be able to do just that..
No, the coverage will not be solid, but they will be able to listen in most of the primary locations of the island.. Thus, the primary objective is accomplished.
It’s not all that I had hoped for,but it seems to be a preety good backyard mechanic solution, with no additional expenses I can’t afford, and it’s legal..
Basically, it can actually get the show on the road instead of the dilly-dallying I’ve been doing with it the last couple years.
I could (and actually have) covered this entire island and parts of the next with a clear and bold signal using only one single Rangemaster.. but the installation wasn’t legal, so I ceased it.. I’ve been running around in circles ever since trying to determine a legal way of doing the same thing to no avail..
So now,finally accepting realities, I’ve consider this method to be the closest thing to it.
