Behringer Ultramizer DSP-1425P is pictured
The items below are placed in the order
that they used in a radio station
Coverage area using our custom 500mw transmitter, and antenna at only 15 feet above ground; is over 15 miles. We used several stock car radios from GM & Ford for our test. We also used a low quality after market Jensen and got similar results.
The antenna pictured, is the Radio Brandy Ultimate FM Antenna balanced dipole; the bal-un is tucked inside the horizontal copper pipe. When mounted to a metal mast as pictured; the antenna produces a figure 8 pattern. The larger lobe is to the front and a smaller lobe to the rear. SWR is ultra low at 1.1.1.
We feed our antennas with LM-400; avoid using high loss RG58 (except for short cable from SWR meter).
This is a basic studio set up. Computers are used
to replace the traditional analog equipment
like: Reel to reels, carts and turntables.
1 watt Broadcast Warehouse FM module.
A low power AM radio station can be built; using the same studio equipment as an FM station.
Only items related to the transmitter, would be different; mainly audio processing.
Technically: Up to the point of the transmitter, all radio station equipment required is the same. From the transmitter to the antenna, it depends on your license if required in your country; or the power you wish to use if no license is required.
Of course the studio equipment you choose depends on your budget and how elaborate of a set up you desire.
The equipment above is bare bones for a good sounding radio station.
