Product Description

Here is a great entry-level kit that will teach the basics of FM Broadcast Transmission while finding many uses around the home or dorm room. The FM10C has plenty of power to cover your home, back yard, or city block. Our manual goes into great detail outlining all the aspects of antennas, transmitting range and the FCC rules and regulations. You'll be amazed at the exceptional audio quality of the FM10C. Tunes through the entire 88-108MHz band in three separate ranges with a tuned LC circuit. Re-broadcast your favorite music commercial free and with the dynamic range the musician intended, without all that nasty compression the big boys use to make their station sound louder than the competition. Compression produces a noticeably muddier and less dynamic sound. The unit runs on internal 9V battery, external power from 5 to 15 VDC, or an optional 120 VAC adapter is also available. Includes the matching case & knob set for a professional finished look. Case size 5"W x 1.5"H x 5.25"D Note: The FM10C is a do-it-yourself learning kit that you assemble. The end user is responsible for complying with all FCC rules & regulations within the US, or any regulations of their respective governing body.

I needed some parts to finish this kit after making a few mistakes and the tech support staff was very helpful in helping me figuring out what I needed.

I built one of these from a kit. They are easy to solder and build. Much better than the CC Crane transmitter, which is the second best choice. It is completely in a different class than the FM transmitters you buy at mass merchandise chains.

There are FCC regulations limiting power of FM transmitters. What I was surprised at given the regulations was the variation in quality.

This is the BEST FM transmitter I could find. I also own the CC Crane FM transmitter which is OK, but significantly below this one in quality. I would not buy a FM transmitter other than one of these two.

FM transmitters are handy for rebroadcasting streaming audio from a computer, TV, or you music collection throughout the house. They work much better in areas with few FM stations. You do need a clear channel to broadcast the FM signal.

I've put a few of these together, along with other Ramsey kits, and have to say that this is one of the easier projects to assemble. It's good for people that have basic soldering skills and want to make a product that produces obvious results.

I've seen several applications for this unit. Aside from just being, "fun" or interesting, I've sold assembled kits that went to small businesses that used it to broadcast their advertisements or specials where running speaker wire was impractical. I've seen small charity events use them to keep long lines updated with regard to events.

By far the most creative was a Christmas lights display in a neighborhood. The owner had his lights going in time with music that he was playing, and a sign in his yard that informed passerby the frequency to tune to in order to see the lights and hear the music together. As a result, people would park outside of his house, tune to the appropriate frequency, and hear the music in their car radios going in time with the flashing lights. Very cool.

Bear in mind that this is a tiny transmitter with very humble results. Broadcast range is tiny, and depending upon antenna placement and surroundings could range anywhere from 15 feet to 200 feet or so. But, for its intended purpose, price point, and ease of use, it's a great product and one of Ramsey's better designs.

Some kit builders have technical issues with how this kit is designed. It WILL drift depending on various factors. If you want a rock solid signal, get the Ramsey FM25B. I needed some parts to finish this kit after making a few mistakes and the tech support staff was very helpful in helping me figuring out what I needed. Keep in mind you won't get this kind of service if you order from a non-Ramsey reseller. For me its worth a few bucks extra. I will also say when I bought this kit it was cheaper on shipping to get it from Amazon than it was from Ramsey's own site.

After completing the assembly of this kit, the result was very satisfactory as it was able to transmit clean stereo signals to my FM receiver. Compared to other electronic kits that I have assembled, the quality of the components, board and documentation for this item is quite exceptional. The instructions are very clear that when followed properly would result to a completed working assembly.

It's been a while since I picked up a soldering iron, but I needed one of these for the Christmas Lights music broadcast mentioned by several reviewers, so I ordered it. The price was right, but is sat around for a couple of months until I decided to spend an afternoon and the next morning putting it together. I was VERY shocked when it worked on the FIRST power-up! The range for this humble design is excellent by my standards, and the audio quality is as good as I've heard from a consumer transmitter. The things not NORMALLY found around that I would suggest making sure you have are: GOOD soldering/soldering tools (700F is the temp I used), because you WILL make component placement mistakes. A nine-volt battery. An audio cable with RCA type plugs to 1/8" stereo plug. An actual FM RADIO. Gee, who has one of those around any more?? I used my iPhone as a source for the test audio, and had to raid the attic for the radio to listen to. And a 9-volt battery?? That came from a smoke detector. If you do buy this, keep these in mind, and you will NOT be disappointed in the outcome! If you plan to use it for any length of time, stop by the Shack and get a 9-volt wall wart for power.

You pay for what you get. It was very easy to build. Nice little project. One problem. The frequencies slightly moves. +/- 0.1MHz over time making you chase it around the dial every few hours.
