This 30W transmitter is a still a worldwide favorite which has been on the market since 1999, it's reliable, it's durable and long lasting, even after 20 years there are various clients in the world still using this model for their community stations. This power level is suitable for a small town.
These are the two main versions of this transmitter:
◼ Stereo with RDS and Audio Processing Version
◼ MPX Version
These two versions cover 90% of all customer requirements. Other custom versions are available such as stereo only, no RDS, no processing etc. which we can also make if that's what you require.
You will find these two main versions shown in detail in the two following sections with descriptions of what they do and how they work. You should also see the price, INCLUDING delivery, to your country.
If you are still unsure, you are always welcome to contact us at em: firstname.lastname@example.org or ws: +1 829 6980733 and we're more than happy to advise you.
If you are not sure which version you want, then you definitely need this version. It is perfect for beginners because it adjusts the audio levels automatically and keeps the 30 watt transmitter within the legal specifications required by the state regulator.
This version is also ideal for professionals who just don't need the all the hassle. This is because it includes everything in one enclosure. The audio processing keeps the audio level 'LOUD', but not too loud whereby it causes over deviation and contravenes your permit. The trick is to get the sound as loud as possible so you can compete with the other stations on the dial, but at the same time keeping your signal legal. This is a tricky balance to maintain, but this version in stereo with our internal audio processers does exactly this.
In addition, this version INCLUDES RDS. This allows everybody to see your station name and more scrolling across the car radio display.
The RDS is not just ordinary RDS, it is fully programmable dynamic RDS. This means the transmitter can be connected to a PC by a USB cable. The transmitters RDS circuit will pick the Artist and Song name from any folder on the PC disk drive. This folder is easy to set up in the DJ playout software, like Zara Studio etc. You can find more information about this in the Aareff RDS User Manual.
What is SUPER SILENT? it means it's as quiet as a mouse and can use it in a live mic studio without background noise. The video demonstrates the 100 watt transmitter, but it is exactly the same for the 30 and 50 watt units.
If you want SUPER SILENT option, MAKE SURE YOU ADD IT AS AN OPTION in the price panel below.
SUPER SILENT means less 20dBA, this is comparable to a low level whisper in a studio, the chances are other equipment, air con or studio ventilation is higher in volume.
This is for expert users who want to provide the MPX signal from an external source.
The PLL is slow locking, this is good as it maintains low frequency performance down to just a few Hertz. This low frequency response is heaven for processors.
The baseband MPX audio input has virtually no tilt whatsoever on the low bass frequencies making it perfect for use with multiband processors such as Orban, Invonics, Stereo Tool, Omnia etc. Check the image of the test we made in MpxTool.
On delivery the equipment is ready to plug in and use with any suitable 50 ohm antenna system such as our:
• SINGLE DIPOLE
• 4.8dBi 2 DIPOLES
• 7.8dBi 4 DIPOLES
• 10.8dBi 8 DIPOLES
• 4.8dBi 5/8 ANTENNA
• -0.8dBi CIRC. DIPOLE
• FOLDED DIPOLE
Our system package the 30W EIRP system includes this transmitter with a 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.
The output transistor can handle any amount of reflected power comfortably with a a rating of 45 watts on a more than sufficient large heatsink for cooling
The enclosure is made in strong 16 gauge steel, powder coated and baked in satin black. This leaves a tough, durable surface that will never rot or corrode and be cleaned to shine for decades. The front panel is 19 inch across and 2U (3.5 inch) high with a depth of 12 inches, so it will fit with ease into a standard rack. It is very strong and difficult to damage even under extreme handling.
When we test this unit we need to test it at some frequency, it's obviously better if we test it at the frequency you want to us it on, then you can use it straight out of the box on delivery. But if you don't know the frequency, that's okay, the frequency, FM deviation and power is easy to set in a few minutes on the underside panel controls.
The stereo version with audio processing and limiting meets all the regulatory standards required out of the box and pre configured. In fact if you send us a copy of your permit and it's conditions, we will set it up exactly to the specification. This equipment complies with EU/CE harmonised standards and FCC technical requirements for FM broadcasting. More information HERE
