Edit that to fit the browser.
That is the one I have, its just like a broadcast station, with
a good antenna, the range is very good.
For some reason, mine came with a very large heat sink, maybe the new
models are more efficient.
I have it set up so the transmitter comes on when I power up the shack.
I love old buzzard round tables as I can go make tea, smoke, use the can,
sweep out the garage, etc, all while listening till its my turn.
I made a 1/4 wave dipole out of a PL259 and coat hangers, and stuck it on
my vent pipe on the roof.
I never checked the range, its on 90.4 MHz.
A good antenna would likely get me in trouble.
4 watts and a good antenna would likely go many miles.
The ramsy ones are good for a few hundred feet tops and sound poor.
