You don’t need a computer. As stated in the previous post you can use most any audio source such as a CD player, mp3 player, tape player, etc. These would connect to the “LIVE” input of the Talking House transmitter. Or, you could connect a microphone and broadcast live from the microphone. The computer is great for running an unattended, automated program.
If you have an audio mixer, you could connect several different audio sources including microphones and broadcast a live show.
You can use the Talking House message recorder. Of course your program time is limited by the time allowed by the message recorder ( 5 or 7 minutes.) You can put most anything you’d like on the message recorder as long as it doesn’t violate the FCC decency rules or copyright laws. But, the sound quality of the message recorder is poor for music.
According to Talking House specifications, the transmitter is legal under FCC Part 15 rules when used per the user manual. The “trouble” occurs when you don’t follow the rules. And sometimes, even when you do follow the rules. Even if you run a perfectly legal station, that doesn’t mean you won’t interfer with some other service. In which case the FCC can shut you down regardless.
