The Axino low power FM transmitter

FMTX pic

Yes, Axino-Tech has a low power stereo FM transmitter available for short term lease within New Zealand.

The transmitter is intended to be used by and for one-off events, shows, schools, open days, churches or community groups. It may also be useful to low power FM (LPFM) broadcasters who need cover while their own equipment is under repair, for example.

Normally the transmitter would be operated under the N.Z General User Licence for low-power FM broadcasting, in which case it is set to emit less than 1 watt RF power. In special cases, where the lessee owns a licence (which must be sighted), the transmitter can be set for 5 watts or more.

Antennas. The lessee must provide their own antenna, which should present a good 50 ohm load to the transmitter. A typical antenna would be a dipole or ground-plane monopole, mounted to radiate with vertical polarisation. If there is enough interest, Axino-Tech will consider bundling the equipment with a suitable antenna.
