To me, Part 15 as a hobby is a sophisticated toy, like a model train layout, remote controlled camera drone, an inflatible girlfriend, or other plaything.
My three certified transmitters match each other perfectly as factory calibrated, so Brooce’s Maxell is a mystery as to why it pushed signal over such a good distance.
Today’s test was done with the Wholehouse 2.0 set to monaural.
Neither the Scosche nor C.Crane have a mono switch, they’re strictly stereo.
The next tests will be in the Canadian mode, as long as the hidden switch in the Wholehouse 2.0 is intended to achieve the BETS standard for Canadian low power, 4X part 15.239, and many have said that’s what the switch is for.
At the ALPB Meeting July 4th I went on record supporting a movement to petition the FCC to adopt the Canadian BETS standard as a U.S. part 15 standard for FM, and this next test will demonstrate just what the Canadian RF level will be like.
Neil estimates the actual boost in signal strength will cover approximately twice the distance.
