Hi there, I see things are fairly quiet here but I don't think dead..

This is my first post, and having read a fair bit of whats here, am glad to be avoiding cheap Chinese transmitters. like this:

Hows that price - compared to ebay..

Anyways I'm still a beginner but understand theres a few rules and considerations to take on board.

So that said, does anyone have a recommendation for the best modern day equipment for getting into LPFM (a 1 Watt radio station) at the cheapest price or thereabouts? Is there anything "off the shelf" like these Cheap Chinese ones that can actually be used with confidence? Or is there a Jaycar kit, or someone who makes transmitters that readers might recommend?

PS I live at the top of a hill - almost like a clifftop and wont need too much height for antenna - if any possibly.

Thanks a bunch,

No, we're not dead, just been really busy and haven't had a lot of time to devote to the site.
At the moment there's not a lot around that isn't made in china.
Google Tennatron (Motueka) and have a look at what they offer. There's also a company in Australia that makes good quality transmitters, I just can't remember their name.

Just too busy, we are still alive ,haha. In my opinion, the
cheap don't amount to low quality. Does any one use the
China transmitter before? How is it?
