Ok so I got the new working transmitter and did another test. I had to go all the way down to 87.7 to get the cleanest frequency and even that one wasn’t so clean but cleaner than 106.1. I guess since it is Saturday (Weekend) allot of pirate stations go off as I was picking up music from churches all the way down to random stuff. I even used Radio-Locator to try to find a open frequency and those were all taken. I was amazed at how many stations there were playing on a empty or unsilenced frequencys.
Anyways to the results as that I know @Thelegacy has been waiting for. I was able to get 900meeters (.55Miles) of range. I was amazed at this as I have almost doubled the range from the first test.
For Test #3 I will try it on a weekday and see if I can find some open frequency’s since some pirate stations may only run on weekends 🙂
Also as a UPDATE I did get the Talking House 5 off eBay. I will use this transmitter to broadcast my internet station. I am sure with the AM band it won’t be hard to find an empty frequency. I will try this rabbit ear antenna trick with the AM and see what the results are.
