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 5kW Do?

Up to 70 miles is possible with this power level, however with typical quality radios you can expect about half that. In terms of city coverage, this is perfect, not too much, but at the same time, just enough to penetrate the concrete and glass between buildings to bring a clean signal to the inside.

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.

9dBi 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 four folded dipoles optimally spaced to produce 9dBi of gain. Cut short, this multiplies the signal pointing to the horizon by 6.25 times resulting in 5kW 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

This package uses 130ft / 40mt of LMR400 antenna cable. The loss on this cable and plus the antenna gain actually results in an EIRP of over 5kW.

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.

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
