All the versions of this transmitter will operate with a power supply of 12-15V DC (4.5 amps) or worldwide mains 90 to 260V AC.
Our package 75W ERP System includes this transmitter with our stacked dipole antenna and very low loss LMR400 cable to give you a full system that will comply with the regulations of the European Union and most other countries in the world.
We are absolutely passionate about the products we build and we try and think of everything we can do with our designs to make it easier and reliable for the customer. We are not the best sales people, but we are great engineers, so if you have any technical questions please feel free to email us.
MPX. - This is the low cost version, but is not intended for the novice or beginners. The audio input is raw MPX without any audio limiting or stereo coder circuitry, this must be provided externally in accordance with the recommendations of http://www.aareff.com/ETR132.pdf
Stereo Version. - This is identical to Mono/MPX version but with a stereo coder built in. RDS cannot be used with this. Again it does not include audio limiting, so it's not recommended for the novice or beginner. External limiting need to comply with the recommendations of http://www.aareff.com/ETR132.pdf
Stereo and Audio Processing. - Most small radio stations and beginners will use this version, this is because it includes audio processing circuitry and suitable limiting to keep the transmitter in compliance with the maximum bandwidth permitted by the international regulations. There is also access to the MPX in and out on the back panel which allows all known RDS units to be connected.

This is a real customer picture of our 30W MPX transmitter in use with an Orban stereo generator and audio processor in the United States. The customer said
"It is hooked up and really works well. It is "On the Air" and sounds great with the 8100 Optimod driving it. This is one of the best units I have seen for the value in a long time. I will monitor it and keep you updated on its performance"
