|How Far Does The Whole House FM Transmitter 2.0 Go?|
|We guarantee 150 feet in all directions for a typical family home, that’s over 70,000 square feet of coverage.
Since the average home is around 2,000 square feet, according to National Association of Home Builders, it shouldn’t be a problem to cover your entire house. Even Bill Gates’ home is “only” 48,000 square feet!
|How Many Frequencies Does The Whole House FM Transmitter 2.0 Offer?|
|The Whole House FM Transmitter 2.0 allows you to cover the full range of FM frequencies from 88.1 to 107.9 FM. It also lets you select frequencies in 1 MHz steps so countries who use the even frequencies can also use our FM transmitter.
|Will It Work With My Audio Source?|
|The quick answer is, YES! We’ll put it this way: we have never run into an audio source that it can’t work on. Since it doesn’t need any software or downloads to operate its compatible with anything. Some of the most popular audio sources are iPods, other MP3 Players, TVs (including HD), DVD & VCR Players, Computers (PC and Mac), Satellite Radios (Sirius and XM), and Home Stereo Systems, just to name a few.
|What Is The Cable With The Red & White RCA Jacks For?|
|This is a special cable that enables you to broadcast from devices like TV’s, DVD players, Home Stereo Systems, etc. that do not have an earphone jack but only RCA jacks. You can also use it to broadcast from a home theater or stereo tuner and some satellite radio units.
|My Audio Source Doesn’t Have A Volume Control, What Do I Do?|
|We built into the Whole House FM Transmitter 2.0 the ability to control the volume comming into the FM transmitter so you can help prevent over modulation.
|Will Leaving My Whole House FM Transmitter 2.0 On 24/7 Harm It?|
|No, it won’t. We didn’t want an FM Transmitter that was so delicate that we had to remember to turn if off or else it would fry some circuitry or melt something so we built it to last, you can run this thing 24/7 without ever having to shut it off.
And yes, even running it in a hot car during summer won’t hurt it… just don’t leave it in direct sunlight, like your dashboard!
|I Lost My 110/220V AC Adapter, Can I Use Some Other One?|
|NO, using a power supply other than the one included with the FM transmitter WILL damage the unit and void the money back guarantee.
|Why Doesn’t My FM Transmitter Turn On?|
|• Have you tried the power switch on top of the FM Transmitter?
• Is the power cord firmly attached to the FM Transmitter?
• Is the AC adapter plugged into the wall?
• Have you tried another power source? Like use batteries or the USB Power cable with your computer to power it instead of the AC Adapter (or vice versa)?
|What Is The Maximum Distance An FM Transmitter Can Go Without A License?|
|The quick answer is approximately 200 feet for an FM Transmitter covered under Part 15 (Read FCC Public Notice dated July 24, 1991). The full answer is much more complicated than that: 250 µV/meter @ 3 meters (also measured as 48 dBuV/m).
|Is This FM Transmitter Designed To Comply With FCC Part 15 Rules And What Exactly Are The FCC Rules?|
|Yes, the Whole House FM Transmitter 2.0 complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules, Section 15.239(b) which states:
Since this is a question the FCC receives a lot they have also issued a Public Noticed dated July 24, 1991 to help clarify any questions.
(Our FCC ID: XOAWH-FMT and for Canada it’s IC.8728A-WHFMT)
|Why Does the FCC use Microvolts(µV) to Determine the Power Output (Field Strength) of a FM Transmitter And Not Watts?|
|Great question, the best source we’ve found to help explain that is at Ramsey Electronics.com.
