I was reading the forums here yesterday, I read the one John of WDCX posted about the height suggestions for part 15 am when it hit me, vandalism is the main reason my fm antenna is disguised as old glory and why i have hesitated to place my sstran outside.
But wait, what if i installed the sstran and a mp3 player connected to a 12 volt car battery/solar panel and placed a steel whip on the side of my mini-van???
I could feed audio from a playlist on the mp3 player while im out driving around town, then when i park it at home i could simulcast my fm from a cheap battery operated radio.
All of this except the car battery (completly seperate from the vehicle battery) could be stored in a tool box .
The only drawback i see from a setup like this is the cable feeding the signal to the steel whip.
What do you think?? Any suggestions??
