Fm Micro Broadcasting Equipment


Getting Started

Here is one of Ramsey’s one watt transmitters to give you an idea of what is available from one of the many companies making this kind of equipment today! This is a very simple unit to use, as you can see there’s a few buttons on the face plate telling you what functions they perform. We will be adding a list of different companies who make plug and play type of equipment for those of you who are just getting started in micro broadcasting. I am also including a rear view picture so that you can see that most if not all these transmitters use RCA jacks to plug in your feed sources, CD player, tape player, computers etc. Please don’t think that we are recommending or endorsing this particular piece of equipment, the photos were easy to access and that is why I chose this unit, but I will go on to add that there are a number of people using this unit, including myself! If you are one of those who have an endless streaming bank account you can buy the more expensive stuff, but this is great for beginners. This unit is popular enough that they can be spotted on ebay frequently. If you will notice the small onboard antenna sticking out of the top, this means that you can hook up your feed source and start practicing within minutes, you and your neighbor ( if they are close by ) will be able to tune in right away. What’s great about this is you can listen to your favorite web broadcast in the garage or while washing your car and not have to be sitting in front of your computer. Just plug in your computer with a jack cord from radio shack to transfer the feed to the transmitter. The cord has a 1/8 inch jack on one end, and two RCA jacks on the other making it easy to adapt from one to the other! I recommend putting a small mixer in line to control the volume going to your transmitter. You can pick up our broadcast on your computer. Chances are you already have if you are here reading about micro broadcasting. The whole idea is to put up nice little station in your community and become a news source for as little money as possible keeping in mind that you want to sound just like the big guys only covering a smaller area and not the whole state! This is just to give you a general idea! If you need more info feel free to contact us, we can help you get started.

Behringer Ultra-Dyne 9024 Limiter Comperssor
behringer9024

This is the compressor/limiter that I use myself. They are a little difficult to figure out at first but I have included three different broadcast setting here on the site for you to reference. There is no guessing with a digital type compressor, you simply program the desired settings and lock it down. You can find one of these on ebay from time to time, most of them are in near new condition because the owner could never figure it out . In your case you will only require one of the three settings and you’re done. The sole purpose of this unit is to keep the feed going to your transmitter at a steady level so that you are not over driving or under driving the transmitter making the feed sound consistent just like the big guys! Of course there are other models you can use, it just happens that I prefer this one.

                   Pyle Pro 1911                Pyle Pro 1911    This is of course a Pyle Pro 1911. This is what I started off with, I simply ran my computer feeds to this mixer using RCA jacks, and then from the mixer you go to your compressor. Now if you have not yet purchased a compressor don’t worry, you can go directly to the transmitter for the time being. The problem with doing it that way is you will have to pay close attention to your audio levels while transmitting so as not to over drive the transmitting unit. Like anything else you can use other models to accomplish this, I have had some good service from the Pyle Pro products without any difficulty what so ever. Just a suggestion where to begin!
