A follow up on my post from a couple weeks ago, the transmitter in a bucket was thrown together today in the house and set up in a temporary location outside.
Range was 1/4 mile from an ungrounded 100 mW AM transmitter, the audio is being fed to the transmitter via a Sony Walkman tuned to 102.7 FM. I am using one of those FM modulators that plugs into a cigarette lighter inside the house connected to a laptop and power supply.
Without the ground i suspect there is no return path, because of the lack of ground the range is limited. Right now it is too dam cold to do anything else, i’ll pick this up when the weather straightens up a bit.
It is currently 30 º F in Busy,Ky and a very light snow is falling.
The time is 3:41 PM ET
Photo’s were uploaded today as well. http://busyradio.weebly.com/am-station-build.html
