A Neat Thought
Posted on August 27, 2011
Remembering the days in licensed radio it was always exciting to hear the station signal over the monitor system coming from the transmitter and tower located many miles away. That gave the real sense of controlling a powerful signal.
What I would like to do with part 15 is get the AM transmitter as far from the house as possible and have that sense of “distant listening” by hearing it over the radio.
Fortunately there is a spot out back which is 60 to 75 feet away where the whole ball of wax could be installed including 10-foot stick and buried radials.
The hesitation that is keeping me back is lack of a plan for getting the control cables out to the location. It would need to be safely laid underground, with power and audio.
Got to declare a starting moment and begin taking action.
