Im looking for an FM transmitter but not sure what one to get.
I saw the Ramsey 1000w...but I'm not sure how to tell how far they transmit.
I want one that can stretch for a couple miles if possible....the further the better. What to the extra antennas do for the transmitter?
I don't want to spend OODLES though!
:jol:

Anybody know anything about transmitters?

Being in Canada gives you a lot more freedom in wattage!!

I know I can't sell anything but kits in the US with power ratings 1watt or less.
The fm10c is a good entry unit. The fm25 gives you a clearer sound. Both are stereo. It all gets pricey after that!
The antenna will give you more range with less interence.

If you are in the US you are limited to the rules of the FCC Part15 of the rule book. Ramsey sells the FM30 which is 25mw and suposidly legal but really is not. I can get about 4 blocks coverage on car radio in the philadelphia area and 2 miles in the mountains where there is nothing on the dial. There are also very frew open spots on the dial in my home area, and really none that are open on both sides. Even the ipod/mp3 fm transmiters for your car, become illegal if you upgrade the antenna. Check out the Ramsey support forum and do a search on Part 15. If you get caught, the FCC will hit you with a $10,000 fine.. and you can not say.. "OH I didn't know"
