The idea of wheeling a station outside in the
morning and bringing it in at night is a very
unique and interesting idea. It would permit
RF experimentation without having to worry
about the studio. (Or a link TO the studio,
if you had the programming on an MP3 player.)
Most of my longwave broadcast band DXing on
153 -285 kHz was done with the radio outside.
Sometimes I have left it out all night long. This
was done to get away from RF interference in the
house. One of my favorite stations is from Iceland
on 189 kHz. I transmitted the audio back into the
house on 88.3 MHz. These guys have great folk music and a
really cool language. I bet they have no idea that
sometimes there has been a listener in Connecticut.
Getting back to the idea of bringing the station out
and leaving it there- makes me think of my SS-Tran
AMT-3000. I used to know how much current it
draws, but now I can’t remember. I think it will run
on 18 volts AC or 20 volts DC.
Of course the set-up would have to be in a safe place,
and be protected from the elements. This is not too
different from the Part 15 station in Colinsville, CT
that runs completely from a parked truck. He drives
it out in the morning and brings it back at night.
