I have a PCS PC based transmitter, and they work very well. The antenna connector is a F-connector which is mounted on the metal bracket that holds the transmitter card.
Veronica sells a dipole antenna that is reasonably priced. It’s about $85.00 shipping included.
You don’t have to worry about frying the PC. I ran my transmitter with no problems. The PC controls power on/off and output power. The audio is fed an 1/8″ mini jack on the transmitter card. Audio quality is good, although I found the modulation to be low. Even with compression, the audio was lower than other stations on the band. You do have to think about locating the transmitter away from your studio gear so you don’t get RF into your audio.
