1000 Watts (1kW) Effective Radiated Power

Our 4 way stacked dipole with 30 metres of LMR400 with the 200W stereo transmitter and audio processing will produce 1000W ERP. This is enough power to project the signal over 80 km if the antenna is mounted in a high position.

Everything You Need

The system is simple and includes everything you need to get the FM transmission side of things operational. You just need to provide a suitable tower, mast or strong pole to put the antenna on, standard line audio from your studio or STL, electricity, a building and finally great radio DJs and presenters.

200W Stereo Transmitter with Peak Limiter with Audio Processor

This bold looking 3U 19 inch unit is made to last. Constructed from steel and power coated in black, it's here to stay. The internal boards and modules are no exception. Driven by the world renowned Veronica® PLL board to give super low noise and RF stable performance. The limiter and stereo coder can be completely disabled if you want to use an external processor such as Orban, Inovonics or PC generated MPX/RDS. This unit complies with European standards ETS 300384 for R&TTE, EN 301 489-11 for EMC and (LVD) 2006/95/EC for safety.

Operation

On the underside of this unit controls are accessible to set the:

4 Way Stacked Dipole (7.8dB Gain)

The 4 way stacked dipole is basically a double 2 way stacked dipole. Just as with the 2 way stacked dipole this antenna covers the entire band from 88 to 108 MHz without a retune. You can use any FM transmitter at any frequency with this antenna. You could even use, with the correct combining equipment, multiple FM transmitters with different frequencies simultaneously with this antenna.

Each dipole has a unbalanced input of 50Ω which means the final input via the four way splitting is 50Ω. Due to this there are no RF currents running down th outside of the feeder cable potentially causing problems to the other users. This combined with the 7.8dBi high gain results in very low filed strength directly below the antenna which in turn minimises local interference to TVs and other equipment in the immediate vicinity.

30 Meter Antenna Cable

This cable is high quality foam and carries the radio signal 30 meters to the antenna, this would normally be used for stations with towers, or masts of up to 15 meters in height.

Simple Set Up

Instructions are supplied to show the station engineer how to set this system to any frequency from 87.5 - 108.0 MHz. However, when we assemble this system we have to test and set it to some frequency, please select the frequency in price panel above that you would like it set to on delivery.

Setting The Frequency

Instructions are supplied to show the station engineer how to set this system to any frequency between 87.5 and 108.0 MHz, this is easily done by reconfiguring the dip switches on the under side panel of the 1 watt driver exciter. However, when we test this system we have to set it to some frequency, we prefer it to be the one you choose, so please select from the box above the frequency you would like it set to on delivery.

Two Year Warranty

This FM transmitter system along with all our other products comes with a limited 2 year warranty (see warranty conditions)

21 Years, Still Here

Over the last 21 years in Africa and Middle East alone we sold our systems into Congo, Uganda, Liberia, Zambia, Yemen, Rep South Africa, Oman, United Arab Emirates, Tanzania, Southern Sudan, Kenya, Ghana, Gambia, Nigeria and Niger. Our transmitters are the best in very hot climates as they handle the heat and the dust very well under 24/7 operation.

Compliance

All these models comply with European standards ETS 300384 for R&TTE, EN 301 489-11 for EMC and (LVD) 2006/95/EC for safety, the relevant FCC sections of US 47 CFR Part 73 for verification and ITU-R BS.450-3 (11/01) FM Broadcasting at VHF.
