Fun with AMT5000
Posted on January 29, 2013
The AMT5000 from sstran.com has all the high end features, including a power control for setting the final RF amplifier stage to an exact 100mW.
For fun, during early hours before the official broadcast day begins, I like to set the power input to the final RF amplifier down to minimum, which I’m guessing comes to about 40mW.
I could do the math using the simple formula provided in the Manual, but maybe tomorrow.
Prior to starting the internet stream and going to AM full power, we sometimes air the Alex Jones Show to get some idea how dire things are in the world, and this program comes in just over the morning skip from WPRR in Grand Rapids, Michigan, or KRJO in Monroe, Louisiana.
My radio is 36-feet from the transmitter, and if anyone else is receiving the broadcast they’d have to be within a hundred feet. Very private.
