What would be both interesting & excellent is to see if we could get one
of, say, these
" 1 to 1.5 Watt No Tune PLL Transmitter/Exciter - $110 Our standard PLL
kit design. Using wideband monolithic components from Minicircuits,
this PLL covers the entire broadcast band by setting the 8 position dip
switch. This kit comes partially assembled with the surface mount
components soldered on. It is available fully assembled for $195.
Please note: this is a mono transmitter and requires an external stereo
generator for stereo broadcast applications. Audio input is high
impedance, line level. The RF output transistor is a heavy duty TO220
type, not the lighter duty TO18 type found in most comparable kits."
Or. " These packages include everything needed to build a transmitter in
the wattages indicated. All include PLL kit, Amplifier kit, voltage
regulator, enclosure, and assembled power supply. Additionally, you will
find a selection of cables and antenna below to complete your
transmission station. Image displays a fully assembled 150 watt
70 Watt Transmitter $520.00
150 Watt Transmitter $600.00"
Economical, & could then be used by all the hackerspace FCC licensed
& once you've helped us get that completed,
you could give a speech, about how this could be done all around the
@ the UN.
What part would you like to do, K6BP, to help Noisebridge get type
approval for a low cost FM broadcast transmitter kit?
