The unit is quite compact - not much bigger than a bar of bath soap. The Xmtr looks a lot like the HLLY units you can find online, and like the HLLY, this one is Chinese-made, despite Fail-Safe's claims of "American made." In truth, they are "American sold." These are generic transmitters mass-produced overseas sold by numerous companies around the globe. That being said, I still chose the Fail-Safe over the lower-cost HLLY and others due to the good reviews about Fail-Safe's tech support. Nice to know I can call somebody in Indiana if I have a question or concern. Better to pay $100 and have domestic support than to pay $60 and give your credit card info to some guy in Guangzhou.
I set up the Xmtr in my home, at ground floor level, perhaps 6' height above average terrain (HAAT). I connected the antenna, plugged in the power supply, turned it on, set freq to an empty channel and connected my mp3 player. I set the power to low (100mW) and turned on radios around the house. The signal was rock-solid with very good fidelity. There is a small amount of noise in the signal, likely due to the switch-mode power supply. The noise is only apparent between songs, or when the music is very soft. Most of my music is very dynamic, so it won't be an issue.
I got in the car and drove around the neighborhood.Read more ›
This higher power may be seen as a plus but as you know the FCC regulates your Part 15 FM Transmitter output much lower than this. If you mess with a licensed signal and they report you to the FCC a field mobile unit will drive by your home, direction find you, and then send you a notice to stop in the mail. If you don't follow their instructions they typically fine you $10,000. They do this to pirate stations 60 to 120 times a year and typically to the major offenders, but still, it's our government being our government. If you do a search for, "fcc field issued citations" you'll find these notices of apparent liability they send out with fines. Also, as of this review transmitting out of Part 15 is a felony in New Jersey, Florida, and New York, meaning it's not just a civil fine it's a criminal on your record sort of thing. I don't mean to ruin anyones fun or freedom here since I don't agree with FCC's rules on micro power FM Transmitting but I do want to make everyone aware of how things stand with the said enforcement authorities today.
I'd recommend you buy a "50 ohm 10 db BNC attenuator" from eBay to knock this unit down to the 20 mW transmit range. If you really want to be confident stack a 10 db with a 3 or 6 db or try a 20 db.Read more ›
I got this Unit and right out of the box, WOW. I set it to 87.7 and I got in my car and drove blocks and the radio station was still playing my source, (ipod).
I tried others and found them weak, and fade in and out, but not this guy, good sound al over my house. So if your in a market for a FM transmitter this is the one.
Shipping was great, 2 days to get unit.
As best I can tell, the input audio stage of this transmitter must be carefully adjusted along with the careful adjustment of an external 'hard limiter' device to keep your audio from severely over modulating the transmitter.
If you adjust this transmitter's audio input (front panel) using your radio to get a loud signal 'just below distortion' you will be guaranteed to be in violation of FCC modulation rules for FM.
The manufacturer should have built in a 'brick wall' limiter to prevent this, but they didn't do that.
Be careful. You will notice that FM modulation monitors cost a lot of money, and that the manufacturer of this transmitter offers no modulation monitoring or 'over modulation' indicator on the unit, nor do they offer external FM modulation monitoring equipment for purchase.
If you live in an urban area this will be more of a problem than if you live in the middle of nowhere, but all it will take is one FCC scan of your transmitter's modulation and that could result in a visit and a fine.
This unit is made in China. They leave staying out of trouble totally up to you. If you have an FM tuner with a MPX output, you can add a home brew monitor to it to check your modulation, or you can find a broadcaster who will help you with their 20,000 dollar spectrum analyzer to verify your modulation and power level.
Word to the wise.Read more ›
