I received my PCI FM transmitter card only 4 days after ordering it from www.pcs-electronics.com. Installation was a snap and I was up and broadcasting on 88.1 FM in no time.
I checked all the radios in my house and they were able to pick up the signal perfectly. I walked outside with an FM radio and I was able to hear my music from 2 houses down on either side. After that it became complete static. I am extremely impressed with the range especially since I am only using the included antenna which is simply a tiny piece of wire (it’s the purple wire in the picture). Also, the computer is in my basement and not up a high point in the house like the instructions recommend.
Using the included software, I simply turned down the power output and so that it doesn’t broadcast beyond my house and potentially annoy my neighbors. 88.1 was clear before I used it so I think I’m safe. While I was writing this blog post, my neighbor from 3 houses away just started blasting horrible Spanish music that was actually louder than my stereo, so go figure.
