2.5kW EIRP Complete FM Broadcasting Package

1000W EIRP 19 inch professional equipment rack with FM transmitter and RF amplifier
1000W EIRP antenna system, operation and installation guide

What Distance Will 2.5kW Do?

Up to 85km is possible with this power level if the transmitter building is on high ground, a least two stories and the antenna mounted on a pole of at least 12ft / 3.5mt. We can give more accurate predictions on range using satellite elevation data like this RF COVERAGE PLOT at our Facebook page.

1kW FM Stereo Transmitter

For the small station, not too small, like a large town, this transmitter is perfect. With 1000W clean stereo and legal output. It also has built in audio processing and limiting, so you don't need to provide this separately and this will save you a fortune. Install the antenna then just plug in and go.

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

4.8dBi Antenna Gain

The 5/8 antenna is a high performance narrow band vertical antenna which is designed to being mounted to the top of a pole. Because of this top pole mounting it's physically higher off the ground than side mounted dipoles etc. Due to this, even if it's lower gain than the side mounted type, it can have increased range, just because of the height advantage.

20 Metre (66 Feet) Antenna Cable

This package uses 66ft / 20mt of LMR400 antenna cable. The loss on this cable and plus the antenna gain actually results in an EIRP of over 2500 watts.

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.

2.5kW 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
