I for one genuinely want to stay strictly legal. What I’m attempting is an basically an elaborate tourist information station ran for profit.
The pitch to local advertisers will involve receiving radio ad spots, and ads in a local monthly printed newspaper, as a sister to the station (which I am well verse in doing), and.. a basic 2 or 3 page website, designed and constructed individually. A great exposure package deal.. Might try to make it some kind of membership thing.
Nothing is ironed out, this whole venture is such an iffy venture to begin with. But there’s a real potential. If I can cover a solid mile with one transmitter, legally, then everything will be primed for success. At which point a second transmitter to cover the other mile will have to come into the picture.
But back to the original topic…
I got curious and googled the “CZH-05B” shown on the front, and the first results in google gave me this page http://www.elecsky.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=4&products_id=41
I tell ya, everytime I look at it the more intriqued I get, and I have no interest in getting one. Its an Elesky PLL FM Transmitter. This one is incased aluminium, and more attractive than the other two.
This page also provides a pdf manual to it, which I skimmed over…
–It has the FCC compliance paragraph, and in the intruduction it claims:
–“the transmission frequency is highly stable”.
–In bold letters: “.transmission distance more than 300 meters (In line of sight, field, open land)”.
— “will not drift between stations because of our advanced stereo PLL Digital Tuner Technology”
–“The FM Transmitter is designed to operate non-stop 24/7
The manual has 8 pages nicely detailed, and in the appendix right after the Transmitter covering Distance chart, it concludes with this statement in bold: “Electron_Sky(elecsky), it’s owners, and employees accept no responsibilty whatsoever for any consequences arising from the use or misues of unliced or unapproved equipment. We suggest that you check local laws before operating or purchasing transmitting equipment. Again, it is your responsibilty not to break the law.”
I’m just saying it’s intriquing, they present it as quality (to a laymen like me), and it’s sharp looking.
As long as it’s kept on the legal 100mw setting.
