Works beautifully with my Nexus 7 tablet and my Zenith 316 AM/FM tube radio
on April 4, 2016
I am tickled pink! I can finally listen to Audio Noir on my tube radio, with that warm tube sound, just like those old radio shows are meant to sound! I was looking to get an AM transmitter so I could listen on any of my tube radios, but wasn't willing to spend upwards of $70 just yet. Since I do have one old tubie with FM I decided to take a chance on this little FM transmitter.
I use the TuneIn radio app on my tablet, which has many different classic radio sites to choose from. My personal favorite is Audio Noir, which has all the old time radio detective shows.
Setup is very easy. Make sure the unit is fully charged. Plug into the headphone jack of your tablet or phone. I have a Nexus 7 in a case and the jack is long enough that I did NOT have to remove the case, which was nice. Long press the left button to turn the unit on, then find a channel that will work for you and your radio.
Make sure you place your tablet and transmitter away from anything electrical. When I first got this I tried using it while I was still charging my tablet and the transmitter and got a terrible hum during broadcast. Once everything was charged and removed from their chargers I tried again. I have my tablet and transmitter on my desk, which is about 15 feet or so away from my radio. Works BEAUTIFULLY. Absolutely beautifully!
