Trouble is, a transmitter sold on eBay from Indonesia is probably not 
FCC type-certified or type-accepted.

The rules say...

§  73.1660   Acceptability of broadcast transmitters.

   (2) An LPFM transmitter shall be certified for compliance with the
    requirements of this part following the procedures described in part 
2
   of the this chapter.

It would probably not be legal to use such a transmitter on the air.
