How Far Will 10kW Reach?

10000W EIRP is a formidable power level, this is just over 6kW ERP which is the power level required by the FCC for a class B1 and C3 stations. You can calculate EIRP and ERP along with antenna gain online here. According to our customer reports distances of up to 138km have been achieved in some directions using 10kW EIRP. In reality on average terrain with average quality radio receivers the normal usable distance would be about half this. For more accurate distance predictions we can make you a radiation plot using satellite elevation data like these

1kW FM Stereo Transmitter

This bold looking 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. More info on the 1000W Transmitter

12dBi Antenna Gain

In these systems the antenna is everything, you must treat the antenna like your best friend, even a brother (sister too! for the pc sensitive). The antenna just looks like lumps and rods of aluminum screwed together, and it is! but it is much more, the antennas length, shape, installation and height dictate if you signal is going to do tens of miles or less than one mile. The antenna is more important than the transmitter and amplifiers. This antenna system uses eight folded dipoles optimally spaced to produce 12dBi of gain. Cut short, this multiplies the signal pointing to the horizon by 12.5 times resulting in 1000W EIRP transmission signal.

RDS - Radio Data System

As an optional extra this transmitter is available with dynamic and programable RDS fitted. If you want RDS option please ADD TO CART above

40 Metre (130 Feet) Antenna Cable

The coaxial antenna cable used on this system is LMR600. This is super low loss with only -1dB of loss over 40 mt (at 100 MHz). This is the reason that most of the power developed by the amplifiers is transferred with ease to the huge gain antenna stack. The cable is robust but at the same time flexible with an external diameter of about 13mm / 0.5 inch. Both ends of the cable are fitted with high powered Teflon DIN7-16 connectors.

FM Stereo Audio and Processing

The FM signal starts in the internal Veronica PLL which produces the super low noise and highly stable FM signal. You can find more info on this at in our 1W Exciter (PLL driver). Then the internal stereo coder and audio processor boards provide a loud and crisp audio signal on the listeners radio. If your more of an expert, you can if you want use an external processor such as Orban, Inovonics or PC generated MPX/RDS, the limiter and stereo coder we supply can be completely disabled.

Declaration of Conformity

European Union

We hereby declare that this equipment complies with;
• ETS 300384 European Telecommunications Harmonised Standard when used with an audio compressor limiter supplied and tested by Aareff
• EN 301489-11 V1.3.1 (2006-05) EMC Electromagnetic Compatibility when used with 1 meter AC mains cord supplied. If the installation engineer needs to extend this cord, this and the audio input cable should be no more than 3 meters in length to remain in compliance with EMC directive.
• 2006/95/EC Directive (2006-12) LVD Low Voltage Directive.

Equipment compliance is possible using equipment from and in conjunction from other manufacturers, but since this is beyond the control of Aareff Systems, Aareff Systems cannot or be expected to guarantee compliance in this situation.

United States

The following list are the FCC technical requirements for FM broadcasting. We confirm and verify that this transmitter complies with the technical requirements.

10kW Maximum Range Chart

This graph is based on average customer reports in some directions. Basically this shows the typical ranges really ever recorded. Most of the reports were radio station listeners that phoned, texted, WhatsApp etc. into the radio station programs operated by our customers. Range is very difficult to predict as there are many factors that effect it. More info on FM Transmission Range
