This fine Monday afternoon the UPS brought the FM 30B Transmitter Kit from Ramsey.
While unpacking I noticed three things right away.
On the box it states the frequency range is 89.9 to 108 MHz. Attention TheLegacy.
That difference already makes it different from the FM 25B, which the Ramsey website says is the same basic design used to build the FM 30B.
Another difference is the antenna. The FM 25B has a 12″ bolt-in telescoping antenna, while the FM 30B has a 30″ telescoping antenna with a BNC connector.
This third difference is unintended… there is no manual.
I got right through to a delightfully friendly woman who e-mailed me a manual right away.
I will wait before constructing this kit until I get some new solder tips.
Once it’s in operation I’ll compare its spectrum analyzed signal to the C.Crane FM2.
You’re welcome to stay as long as you like.
