The latency challenge will not allow transmitters to use the same frequency, even though you might be able to “sync” up the RF signal. Those of us with internet live streaming radio stations have discovered by experience the challenge of audio latency. Good luck.
OK, that answers that question. But the latency may not really be an issue since the client will need to buffer the audio to some extent. But getting them all to buffer to the exact same point in time would be impossible! I’ve tried this on about 16 computers all connected to the same lan (all in the same room too). Each machine was playing at a slightly different point, even though the settings were all the same. This was the one big problem that I thought would happen with this type of delivery system. So as long as you didn’t have any over lapping coverage spots, it would work. But if it overlapped I can’t suggest what it might sound like. For that test I was using ashoutcast server, and winamp as the client with AAC+ encoding. Even the decoding code make a small difference in the synchronization. Then again, maybe it was small differences in latency, though on this lan the latency is always extremely low
