50W EIRP Complete FM Broadcasting Package



50W EIRP 19 inch professional equipment rack with FM transmitter and RF amplifier

What Distance Will 50W Do?

Predicting distance is one of the most difficult questions we are asked. From experience we can say mounting a dipole antenna on a two story building roof will typically achieve 16km+. If it's mounted on a commercial tower, then 24km+ is possible. We can give more accurate predictions on range using satellite elevation data like this RF Coverage Plot at our Facebook page.

50W FM Stereo Transmitter

For the small station, not too small, like a large town, this transmitter is perfect. With 50W 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.

MORE INFORMATION

Dipole Antenna 0dB

A single dipole combined with 12mt / 40ft of RG58/CU cable produces exactly 0dB gain. This means if you have a 50W transmitter, the antenna radiates exactly 50W EIRP. This keeps things nice and simple, especially where there is involvement of spectrum regulators. More info on the Dipole Antenna

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.

50W 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
