Hi. We're Sleep Radio - an internet-only station
operating in Auckland that was set up solely to help
people relax and sleep - see   I'm
wondering if you techie experts out there can tell me
what I'd need to do to set up a LPFM broadcast, what
equipment I'd need and approximate cost. I already have
computer equipment, a Behringer 12 channel mixer and
mikes etc. Thanks

Hi John,

Welcome to the forum!
Sorry for the late answer - I don't
always get time to check the
In terms of getting on the air, you
will need a transmitter, antenna,
cabling and some form of
modulation limiting (some
transmitters have this built in).

As to cost, that's hard to suggest
really. It depends on whether you
buy new or used equipment and
the quality of the gear.
Don't be tempted to buy cheap
chinese units (see post in the
hardware section).

That's the minimum equipment
you need to get up and running.

Any other questions please ask!
