My guess it they are Part 15 ( I couldn’t find any info beyond frequencies and power levels, tops out at 50 mW) as this type of device is pretty common in TV and video production, etc. But really, at $2,450 how many Part 15’ers will care anyway?

A Point for Discussion
Tim in Bovey prompts a thought I’ve had: “…at $2,450 how many Part 15’ers will care anyway?”
Almost every part 15er in this Forum over the years has spoken from poverty: “I’d like to get a $200 transmitter but it will be 5-weeks before I have that much money.”
That is worrisome because the future of the hobby depends on regular sales activity for the manufacturers otherwise they’ll drop their product lines.
What this country needs is a socialistic program guaranteeing everyone a free transmitter.
This particular stereo transmitter could be a part 15 “white spaces” device for the professional market, which is nothing new. I have a Lectrosonic wireless mic which is labeled “part 15” yet has a very “professional” price tag.

Carl: Is it possible that Part 15 operators like their Amateur Radio brethren are simply cheapskates?

OK AMRadioLegend Man
You asked: “Is it possible that Part 15 operators like their Amateur Radio brethren are simply cheapskates?”

The Economy is not as good as it was when we were younger!
And if it were not for donations I would not be able to afford my AM set up. However one could set up an STL easily via Bluetooth Audio transmitters and receivers as I have. The Bluetooth sender/receiver pair I have does transmit quite far and is indeed Stereo and I didn’t have to pay 1/3 of that price tag. Now 50 mW on those UHF frequencies could go 1 mile which would be great if you needed tto send a signal from my place to something like the post office in Hardyville which is 1/2 mile past the Deltaville market. Then I’d have a transmitter there picking up that signal and transmitting that on 1640 assuming I had that kind of money but lets say for example. Now my signal will cover the market as the signal would fade from the post office to the market and the market would be just where the signal would get very weak on my main transmitter.
But for short distances Bluetooth does work pretty well even better than FM as an STL for your AM transmitter.
