Belden coaxial cable
Low loss cable from BELDEN

Your transmission system is only as strong as its weakest link. Using cheap or inferior cable can severely limit your broadcast power and range. The best way to determine if a cable is right for your application is to make sure that it has a low dB loss at your frequency. Belden is an internationally recognized brand and stands for good quality cables. Cables are available with professional connectors installed, please specify type at ordering!

There are two types available, smaller diameter H-155 and semi-rigid thicker H-500. For short runs (~ 5 meters) it doesn't make sense to invest into expensive cable, but as your cable length approaches 10-20m or even more, it becomes a real problem and it is worth spending a little extra.

If you wish to order greater length of cable than displayed below, simply order 2 or three of a given lenght. For example, if you order 2x20m of Belden H-155, we won't cut the cable but rather send you a full length of 40m.

Specifications:

H155

  • Diameter 5.4 mm

  • Velocity factor 79%

  • dB loss/100m @ 100MHz 9.3

  • Suitable for short cable runs, up to 5-10m
  • Maximum recommended power handling 250W

 

H500

  • Diameter 9.8 mm

  • Velocity factor 81%

  • dB loss/100m @ 100MHz 4.6

  • Suitable for longer cable runs, up to 20-30m
  • Maximum recommended power handling 1200W

LPF 7000, 7002 & 7003
Low pass filters

All FM transmitters produce harmonics at even multiplies of your fundamental frequency. If your harmonics fall on or near TV channel or Maritime frequency you could cause severe interference on that channel. The most common cause of fines from federal agencies is due to TVI or other interference from your transmitter which generates a compliant. Use of a low pass filter is the best method of eliminating this kind of interference. Since the insertion loss of these filters is less than .01dB, these filters are well suited for use on power levels as low as 100 milliwatts on up to 300 watts. For more power please ask, we have more powerfull models as well.

AM MAX II DSP

10W AM transmitter, now with DSP audio processor

There's been a void in the LPAM market for a long time.... a big lack of an affordable, high audio quality and reasonably powerfull AM transmitter. That's why we sat down and designed AM MAX I. After evaluating the AM MAX I for a while we came up with a new design, this time based on DSP. This makes it possible to control parameters of the audio chain, such as the compression, low pass audio filter cut frequency and preemphasis via convenient menu system (control unit now comes with LCD display). Other features, such as the fully solidstate PWM modulator which ensures absolutely crisp modulation, heatsink that bolts to the enlosure for perfect cooling and LCD display unit make AM MAX II DSP really shine. Due to innovative PLL design this unit offers incredible low phase noise and is covering extremely wide frequency range. PLL steps are 1KHz just because nobody asked for less. Hardware supports much smaller steps. Units come with schematic diagram which shows the crucial details of the transmitter, making it possible to use the PWM and PLL in another design with higher output power. You can make use of the relay switch logic as well. Fuse and main on/off switch are now right on the PCB. Perfect for system integrators. Everything else can be controlled via display unit and the UP, DOWN and MENU keys. OEM version available on request. Distributors wanted. AM MAX II DSP comes in two versions, one for the broadcast band and one for the HAM bands. Broadcast version is available right now. HAM version should be available in about one month. PLL supports up to about 30MHz. 19" rack enclosure units are available. These enclosures have enough space inside for two extra PCB's (holes are predrilled for them) and two extra apertures at the back for an optional Canon connector and SO239 connector. This gives you plenty flexibility and makes it easy to implement modifications/extensions.

HIGH GAIN 3/4 wave vertical

HIGH GAIN 3/4 wave FM omnidirectional antenna

This is a redesigned standard 3/4 wave antenna to provide even higher gain. Preliminary testing of the antenna indicated a small increase in gain could be seen when the main radiator was made a little longer then the calculated 3/4 wavelength. This adds inductive reactance to the antenna and a few tenths of a db in gain once the gamma match has been retuned to 50 ohms impedance. We knew the increase in gain would be small by making the antenna longer and if we passed the optimal length, we would destroy the antennas performance altogether. We decided it would be worth the time to conduct further field tests and find this ideal length to extract every last bit of performance possible from any single omni directional antenna offered on this band. Using our exclusive formula we can now calculate the ideal length that provides maximum gain based on our customers frequency. High performance 3/4 wave antennas are not typically seen on any band because the 3/4 wave presents some interesting problems when it comes to impedance and angle of radiation. The typical 90 and 45 degree downward radials used on most smaller ground planes are capable of providing a good 50 ohm impedance but they also give a very high angle of radiation when used on the 3/4 wave. This wastes the added gain of the 3/4 wave by allowing a good deal of your signal to go up rather then out. Our innovative cone shaped ground plane structure on the 3/4 wave overcomes this problem and will refocus the energy so that it projects out into the distance and not up into space. A quick look at the picture showing the radiation patterns will make it easy to understand how this affects range when compared to other antennas. Our 3/4 wave has an impressive gain figure better then 6 db over a half wave dipole and more then 9 db over a circularly polarized antenna. The typical 100 watt LPFM station using a circularly polarized antenna has to run the transmitter at about 225 watts output in order to achieve the 100 watt ERP level because the CP antenna has -3.2 dbd. Since our antenna has a power multiplication factor of four times you would only need 25 watts of RF to reach the full 100 watt ERP level! This can provide a significant savings since many exciters produce 25 watts and would not require the expense of an RF power amplifier. The antenna uses a highly efficient Teflon insulated gamma match that eliminates any coils or matching transformers and allows us to shunt feed the 3/4 wave main radiator while keeping it DC grounded for added lightning protection. Another advantage this antenna has is it's ability to handle high power levels. The weakest link in the chain is the coax connector and our standard model offered in this auction uses a gold pin Teflon insulated weatherproof N connector recommended for up to 1 KW. A simple $50 upgrade using a 7/8 connector brings the power handling to 2.5 KW. For commercial operators seeking an excellent backup antenna that can handle full power we offer a special order 10 KW version. This model replaces the gamma match with a sealed Jennings vacuum variable capacitor and uses an EIA flange connector making it virtually impossible to burn out. Your antenna will be precisely tuned for your frequency and shipped assembled so you get a perfect SWR match. You simply slide the telescopic main radiator sections out of the base to the premarked spot, tighten the stainless steel clamps and connect the coax. Complete instructions are included for easy retuning in the field should your transmit frequency make a major change in the future. We have invested lots of research and development time into this antenna and are willing to stand behind it with a great guarantee. If the antenna you use now didn't cost thousands of dollars, replace it with ours. If anything should fail within two years send it back for free repairs or retuning if you would rather us do it. Give your signal some punch and try our antenna at no risk to you. Antena specs are as follows. Approximate height is 9 feet (depends on frequency). Wavelength is 3/4 wave. Gain over half wave dipole is better then 6 dbd. Power handling capacity is 1 KW on the standard model (2.5 KW with $50 upgrade) and 10 KW on the special order high power version. Bandwidth is 5 MHz. wide with a perfect 1:1 SWR at the center tuned frequency. Wind survival is greater then 100 MPH. Wind load is .7 square feet. Weight is 8 pounds. Radiation pattern is low angle omni with vertical polarization. Antenna is DC grounded for excellent lightning protection.

Stacked spiral dipoles

The OMB-MP antenna is composed of two spiral-dipole elements which form a circularly polarized radiator. It is specially designed for individual use in low power Stereo FM broadcast applications. Its lightweight, sturdy construction makes it capable of withstanding the harshest environments. With stainless steel construction and high conductivity coating the antenna is virtually maintenance-free and well suited for extreme atmospheric conditions or salty environments. Its high-tech yet straight-forward design allows mounting to a mast or tower with extreme ease.
Circularly polarized radiation is especially advisable in rugged terrain and/or large cities. It compensates well for the losses that arise from reflections and the resulting signal trajectories.
This antenna offers its greatest efficiency in FM emissions that include Stereo, RDS, SCA, or Sub-carrier information. It is highly recommended for applications where vertical polarization alone is not desirable and particularly where home stereo, or fixed horizontal, reception antennas are a major factor.
The OMB-MP antenna can be vertically stacked to achieve higher gain figures as shown in the chart above. Specify your operating frequency when ordering as each antenna is factory adjusted to 1.1:1 SWR at your frequency. Each element is DC grounded for additional protection against atmospheric discharges. The MP-1-.5 handles a maximum power of 500 watts. Two versions of the 4-bay MP antenna are available, the MP-4-.8K (pictured) handles up to 800 watts and the MP-4-2K handles up to 2 kilowatts. There is also an SGP-4 circularly polarized antenna available which handles up to 10 kilowatts. A convenient aspect of this antenna is that you can add bays even after you have purchased the antenna, i.e. you can upgrade an MP-2 to an MP-4, etc. (email for pricing).

MAXPRO 3+

Professional no-tune 15 W FM transmitter

MAX PRO 3+ replaces the innovative MAX PRO 3 and adds new hot features. MAX PRO 3+ is a direct result of many years of experience and development in the RF field. Innovative design provides for amazing unparalelled RF field immunity, making it easy to integrate into an enclosure with an integrated 100-1000W amplifiers and use at various transmitter locations (system integrators will love this). It was developed to form the heart of various professional FM transmitters. Another feature for the system integrators is possibility to connect this unit to our SE4 DSP stereo encoder, making it possible to use the same LCD display unit to set Mono/Stereo operation, preemphasis, compressor/limiter settings and bass/treble. Let's not forget the adjustable built-in SWR protection and overheating protection. Another welcome new feature are the on-board DIP switches, making it possible to set frequency and use the unit without the LCD. Output power can be adjusted in 3 jumper-selected ways, via on-board potentiometer, LCD display or a trimmer. You can easily set the power required to driver your favourite amplifier of choice.

Why is MAXPRO 3+ so great?
- true wideband no-tune operation
- high power (15W typ, 20W max)
- extreme VCO isolation and RF field immunity (our exclusive innovative design)
- directly supports our SE4 DSP stereo encoder via LCD MENU system
- SWR and TEMP protection with adjustable sensitivity
- Operation with or without LCD display
- Power adjustment via LCD, trimmer or potentiometer

How is MAXPRO3+ better than MAXPRO3?
- Minimal PLL step now 6.25KHz
- Operation without LCD module now supported
- Enhanced SWR/TEMP/PLL UNLOCK operation
- Improved board layout
- Improved heat sink

Why is MAXPRO3+ better than MAXPRO4?
- MAX PRO 3+; Minimal PLL step is a lot smaller (6.25KHz versus 50KHz)
- MAX PRO 3+; Features better immunity for strong RF fields and is better suited for high-power applications
- MAX PRO 3+; Better SWR/TEMP/PLL UNLOCK operation
- MAX PRO 3+; Possible operation without the LCD module

Have a quick look at the manual (MAXPRO 3+)

MAX PRO 4 +

Professional reliable no-tune 10 W FM transmitter

MAX PRO IV+ is an answer for those looking for a reliable 10W exciter with an unbeatably wide array of features. This no-tune wideband FM transmitter offers SWR protection, temperature protection, and LCD display for easy digital frequency and power adjustment (via up/down keys). It comes with many nice additional goodies, such as a schematic, parts list, included trimmer for fine-setting the PLL to the last hertz (which none of the competitive units have), on-board connectors for power, audio input, audio level trimmer, built-in pre-emphasis (jumper selectable 50uS and 75uS), and expansion connector for direct connection with SE4 DSP+. It is possible and easy to connect this unit to our SE4 DSP stereo encoder, making it possible to use same LCD display unit to set Mono/Stereo operation, preemphasis, compressor/limiter settings and bass/treble.
Power can be adjusted either by LCD menu system or fixed to one of the preset levels by internal jumpers (thus preventing the user fiddling with the boxed unit).
A 15W final transistor has been used, but is only driven to 10W to offer exceptional reliability. A new efficient heatsink has been developed especially for MAX PRO IV+ to ensure reliable operation.

To sum it all up, the most notable points are:
- true wideband no-tune operation
- high power, 10W (can be extended to 15W), making it possible to drive most 100-300W stages directly
- directly supports our SE4 DSP+ stereo encoder via LCD MENU system
- SWR and over-temp protection
- Schematic included
- Available as a KIT also

1GHz Frequency counter KIT
A KIT solution, an affordable professional unit

Frequency counter is one of the basic electronic measuring instruments. Many similar projects have been published in the previous years, but they all either lacked functionality, reliability or were simply too complex. This article presents a low cost frequency counter with a rich set of very useful functions (for example addition or subtraction of  intermediate frequency - 10.7MHz, 455KHz, 9MHz or CUSTOM) putting to shame even many professional and much more expensive models. Microcontroller does most of the work and keeps circuit simple. This is an easy to assemble KIT, including microprocessor and all parts, including mains transformer. A prescaler can be added to extend its usefulness to 4GHz or more (unit will display correct frequency with prescaler installed). Extensive instructions are provided with the unit.

PCI MAX 2006+

DIGITAL RDS STEREO FM TRANSMITTER for your PC

What is PCI MAX 2006?
PCI MAX 2006+ is a computer card that will change the way you listen to your MP3's or other audio via PC. It will effectively change your PC into a stereo FM radio station, it is a small digital FM transmitter in a form of a PCI PC card. You will be able to play your audio files (CD, wav, MP3, real audio etc.) from your PC through radio waves directly to your household radio receiver in the next room, in the living room, across your yard, in whole block of flats....or for the entire village/small city. You need just an ordinary radio receiver to receive your signal. The included software (also available in the support section of this website) lets you set the frequency and the output power. You can either service your living room, garden or an entire community. Get rid of those pesky cables!

Installation manual for the PCI MAX 2006+ is here.
Installation manual for the RDS daughter board is here.
Manual for the normal size LCD module is here.
Manual for the miniature LCD module with LED VU meter is here.


How do I install it?
It can never be easier that this. Install this card into your PC as you would any other PC card. Install software and you're ready to broadcast!  Software gives you full control over frequency and power. Additional output power and superior audio quality can be obtained by using external power source.
Coupled with MP3 player and scheduling plugins this becomes a fully automated radio station! Perfect for fully automated guided tours, small scale advertising, wireless link from your PC to your stereo in the living room, wireless headsets for translated/interpreted lectures or even a small community radio station...

You are only limited by your imagination!

What is new since PCI MAX 2005?
PCI MAX 2006+ is a major design upgrade from the PCI MAX 2005. We really took our time with this version. We started by analyzing all reported problems with the previous models and we considered various ideas for improvements submitted over the years by the users. We implemented some major changes plus a number of small, but effective improvements, now ensuring excellent audio quality and great stereo separation. Some of the improvements (not all) are listed below:
- External power supply connector was moved to the back for easy access (for those with noisy PC power supplies or perfectionists trying to get the most out of their PC based FM transmitter system. Using external power supply allows for full output power and better audio quality.
- All boards are prepared for RDS, a daughter board is simply plugged in (this could only be done in our laboratory before). Besides, the mounting of RDS board is now much more elegant.
- Additional RF stage for increased isolation (stability) and more RF power (~350mW & 1W versions available). Low power version will be noticeably stronger than the old 2005 cards.
- A LED diode at the PC backplate for transmitter power indication, it makes it possible to check whether transmitter is ON or OFF (and what the power level is). It is very handy for troubleshooting and looks good, too.
- DC/DC convertor is now synchronized with stereo encoder, which eliminates interference problems.
- Power adjustment circuitry has been redesigned entirely and now performs much better.
- PLL loop filter was redesigned for better audio quality.
- 15KHz low pass filter was added (this was really needed as it sounds much better now).
- Improved PCB layout for improved audio quality (less noise from PC).
- An optional external box will be provided as well as miniature LCD display board with VU meter (2x5LEDs)
- 50KHz PLL steps

This is a more/less complete list, some changes may have been implemented, but were not mentioned here. PCI MAX 2006+ has built-in balanced audio inputs, limiters, precise preemphasis and MPX filter. It can be switched to MONO or STEREO by a simple click of a mouse button. There is a phono audio input at the back of the card, which connects to the sound card via provided jumper cable. If you need to keep the particular output for your speakers, simply use splitter (awailable from radio shack or our website). Audio can also be fed to the card from other audio sources (cd players, mixers etc).

Using PCI MAX 2006+ in stand alone mode, without the PC!
PCI MAX 2006+ can also be used in stand alone mode! A small control unit with LCD display can be connected via flat cable and enables changing of the frequency, power and stereo mode. Power jack for the card is already provided on the board, it requires 12-13.8V DC / 1A (center +). Put it in a box and you've got a stand-alone transmitter with high quality stereo encoder, balanced inputs (only pro units have this), optional RDS (similar to RDS MAX 30+) and excellent sound. Add our 15W booster and you've got a nice 15W transmitter.
Small stylish enclosures with special smaller LCD control units (required due to small size of enclosure) and 2x5LED VU meter are available and can be purchased here as well. A normal size LCD control unit, available at this moment, will not fit inside the small stylish enclosure.

What is this RDS thing?
Check the manual for RDS daughter board (link is above) page for more information. Basically it displays station name and sometimes song name (if supported by transmitter) and similar information on a compatible radio receiver. Very popular in Europe, less so in the US.
To enable RDS functionality you need to purchase and install RDS daughter board. It plugs into a socket on the PCI MAX 2006+ board.

If I use PCI MAX in stand-alone mode without the PC, can I still use PC as audio source?
Of course, just plug one end of the audio cable into your sound card and the other into PCI MAX and you're ready to go!


What kind of accesories are available and what can they be used for!

Accesories for stand-alone operation - normal size LCD module
A small control unit with LCD display can be connected via flat cable and enables changing of the frequency, power and stereo mode in stand-alone mode without a PC. Power jack for the card is already provided on the board so you just need a 12-13.8V DC / 1A (center +) power supply and you're ready to go, no PC required.

Accesories for stand-alone operation - 19" rack for normal size LCD module
A 1H 19-inch rack can be purchased as well and is perfect for the PCI MAX 2006+ and the normal size LCD control unit (holes for the LCD and keys are predrilled). There are even holes for balanced XLR connectors at the back and you can take full advantage of the balanced audio inputs.

Accesories for stand-alone operation - miniature LCD module with LED VU meter
This is a much smaller control unit with LCD display and also contains two rows of LED diodes, which either function as a light show or VU meter (they change depending on sound volume). This unit was developed for a smaller box, which is just big enough for the PCI MAX 2006+ and this display unit. The entire unit is extremely compact and portable and looks great in the dark.

Accesories for stand-alone operation - small enclosure for miniature LCD module
This is a much smaller enclosure, which is just big enough for the PCI MAX 2006+ and this display unit. The entire unit is extremely compact and portable and looks great in the dark with back-lit LCD display and LEDs jumping up and down with the music. Especially cool blue background LCD displays can be ordered as well, but cost a bit more. Starts shipping in a few weeks.

Accesories for stand-alone operation - 15W or 300W amplifier
You can increase power by adding our 15W and 300W amplifier.
15W booster requires minimal drive and will work with any version of PCI MAX.
300W amplifier requires 1W version of PCI MAX.
Please make sure you are operating in accordance with local laws when using such high-power amplifiers.

For stand-alone and PC operation - external power supply
Using external power supply while your PCI MAX is installed inside a PC gives your transmitter a bit more power and also eliminates any remaining noise, generated by the PC's power supply.
In stand-alone operation this is of course a non-optional item as you need to power your unit somehow. Power supply will work anywhere in the world, it looks similar to the laptop power supply. The mains cable that plugs into the unit is not included as it is different in every country. It is a standard PC-type and can be purchased in any PC shop or radio shack and costs about 1 US$.

For stand-alone and PC operation - RDS daughter board
Check this page for more information. Basically it displays station name and sometimes song name (if supported by transmitter) and similar information on a compatible radio receiver. Very popular in Europe, less so in the US.
To enable RDS functionality you need to purchase and install RDS daughter board. It plugs into a socket on the PCI MAX 2006+ board. Starts shipping in a few weeks.

For stand-alone and PC operation - various types of antennas
Antenna makes a huge difference. Various types of antennas are available, you can check them out and purchase here. Here's a fast overwiev:
- PCS0205; This is a directional antenna, it has very high gain, but transmits most of the signal in one direction only.
- COMET; This is a very popular omnidirectional antenna, it has average gain, but transmits in all directions.
- Dipole; Less gain than the type above, omnidirectional, but they can be stacked into 2-bay or 4-bay configurations, which are than better than any other omnidirectional antenna we have. This is the best there is for omnidirectional, if you use 2 or 4 dipoles with 2-way or 4-way harness.
- MLB6600; low end, omnidirectional, small gain, but very popular due to low price and the fact that the coaxial cable is inclulded as well.
- PCS0201 ; this is our new omnidirectional unit, it is somewhere in the middle with performance. The only downside is its low power handling capability, only about 2W maximum.

For stand-alone and PC operation - audio Y splitter/adapter
Are you worried about loosing an output from your sound card which is now used for PCI MAX? You can reclaim it with this splitter which enables you to use your sound card output for your sound card and PCI MAX at the same time. Simple and cheap, but usefull and effective!

A cost effective, stealth (link transmitter is inside a PC, but can also work in stand-alone mode), rock solid (PLL controlled) small distance link system. A very cost effective solution for sending your audio up to 10 km far (requires clear sight of view with high-gain directional antennas). Link transmitter includes stereo encoder (it can be disabled with a windows program), which means you get a full MPX signal at the receiving side and your main transmitter can be mono, minimizing your potential losses. Both receiver and transmitter use standard TV antennas, which can be inexpensively purchased in high-gain configurations!

10GHz link system


Contains:
- PC card link transmitter, stereo FM transmitter
- VHF receiving module (outputs MPX or mono signal - selectable)
- Frequency range: TV channel 2-6 (55-85MHz) or 7-9 (175-190MHz)

Requires:
- Power supply for receiving module (can be ordered below)
- Two directional antennas (use wire for small distance or order below)
- Coaxial cable (use RG58 or any other 50-75ohm coaxial cable)
- PC with WindowsXP or a LED module for stand-alone operation

Specify frequency band under comments when you place your order! Receiver is universal!

RDS MAX 3.0

Stand alone RDS ENCODER - BRAND NEW MODEL

RDS MAX 3.0 is the latest in line of our RDS encoders. It combines the accumulated knowledge and experience gathered with RDS MAX v1.0 and 2.0 and brings new enhanced features, smaller size and increased reliability. RDS MAX 3.0 scrolls PS faster than previous versions and supports more than 3 times as many PS, more than you'll ever need. Compatibility with any RDS tuner out there is guaranteed. RDS MAX 30 can also pick up MP3 ID tag from Winamp and transmit it as PS or radiotext on your RDS-enabled receiver. PS scrolling is supported as well. Jazzler support is coming soon, too. In short, if you're using your PC and WinAmp or Jazzler to play your audio over the transmitter, now you'll finally be able to send the song and artist name to your listeners! Among other features are dynamic PS (also in stand alone mode, without a PC), PTY, TA, RT, CT, ECC, EON and others.
RDS MAX comes with MPX feedthrough function, meaning all you have to do is connect it between the stereo encoder and the transmitter. New enhanced PLL circuit makes it easy to lock RDS MAX 30 to stereo pilot. Suitable RCA connectors are already on the PCB board. Connection to the PC is via standard RS232 cable. New black anodized enclosure is smaller, looks better and is more convenient to use. External TA switch makes it easy to switch to TA even without a PC, in stand-alone mode.

RDS MAX 3.0 IMPROVEMENTS:
- Greatly extended number of PS supported
- Much faster scrolling now possible, also PS scrolling
- No problem with any RDS radio tuner out there
- If you have RDS MAX 2.0 already, you're eligible for a upgrade rebate, making it possible to purchase RDS MAX 30 cheaper.
- PLL lock led now visible from the outside (see picture)
- TA switch on the board, for easy and convenient TA toggle
- Smaller and much nicer black anodized box (the pic on the website is not so good since it is very difficult to take a good picture of a black object, in reality it looks much better)
- Firmware upgrades available free of charge (you can now upgrade your unit yourself)
- ECC support, CT and EON planned with next firmware upgrade
- Basic windows driver is available immediately to those who want to experiment with the unit

SE4 DSP+

ENHANCED TRULY DIGITAL DSP STEREO ENCODER WITH LIMITER AND COMPRESSOR!

This completely redesigned unit uses DSP to generate pilot and process audio in ways which are very difficult or close to impossible to do with usual analog technology. And it does all that in exceptionally small factor! It has many advantages over SE-3 and previous version SE4; brick-wall low pass audio filter with a sharp 19KHz notch, limiter and compressor, improved pilot generation due to DSP, stereo/mono switch with LED indication, balanced and unbalanced audio inputs, increased channel separation, precise preemphasis, less noise, on-board power connector and an optional LCD display connector. Optional LCD control unit makes it possible to set treble, bass, preemphasis and compressor settings. SE4 can be connected to MAX PRO III via dedicated data cable making it possible to control both units via single LCD control unit. Cost-efficient and simple. Designed specifically as a companion for all MAX PRO series exciters, but is also compatible with any FM exciter. All the connectors and switches are mounted on the board so connecting this unit requires no additional soldering. Mounting holes are compatible with SE3. This is a perfect stereo encoder for beginners and professionals.

EX-2200 STEREO ENHANCER

EX2200 Dualfex Pro Stereo Enhancer

The DUALFEX PRO EX2200 has been developed out of many years of research and development in the field of psychoacoustic processing. It improves presence, transparency, and intelligibility and will improve and widen the spatial image even beyond the speakers!

AUTOHYBRID

AutoHybrid

AutoHybrid gives you simultaneous send and receive audio through analog telephone lines. Not just another half duplex auto-coupler, this is a full duplex AutoHybrid.

Yes, you can send and receive audio at the same time. The dual transformer hybrid is capable of 20 dB nominal trans-hybrid loss. In other words, your transmit signal will appear mixed with the receive signal, but at a level 20 dB lower than it was sent into the phone line.

The "Auto" feature is very simple. When the "Auto" switch is selected, AutoHybrid will answer on the first ring. The phone line will remain off-hook, until either the Drop button is depressed, or until the phone company releases the line. Keep in mind that some business PBX telephone systems do not provide this release signal.

This is a simple, passive, auto-answer/disconnect telephone line interface. While this may be our smallest hybrid yet, it contains all the features you need for many simple applications. AutoHybrid is perfect for monitoring remote locations, IFB feeds, and many simple studio, conferencing, and PA telephone interface applications.

T DSP X AUDIO PROCESSOR

BW

The DSP X is a new generation of digital audio signal processor that can be used for FM, NET and Digital radio broadcasting.
The DSP X is the first UK designed and manufactured digital multi-band broadcast processor. Using the latest multiband DSP technology the DSP X offers a versatile and powerful tool in creating a loud punchy on-air presence. The DSP X has been designed and built from scratch using a new approach to the design of a digital audio processor that incorporates the most up to date components. Cutting edge technologies allow the DSP X to produce similar results to other processors in the market but in a simpler more cost effective way. The advances we have made have allowed us to pass the savings on to our customers.

 

DSP audio processor

 

What's Under the Lid?
The DSP X is driven by a fast 8 bit micro-controller which controls a vast array of specialised analog and digital circuits: These include 24-bit A/D and D/A convertors, analogue level control circuitry, 18 x 24 bit DSP's, an ethernet port, a trigger port, 2 x RS232 ports, 200 LEDS (metering), an LCD screen, 2 sample rate convertors, a headphone jack and memory devices to hold the software and firmware.

The Processing Architecture!
After input selection the 24-bit digital audio signal is passed through a wideband AGC processing block to normalize input levels. The output of the AGC feeds the EQ and audio shaping sections before being split into four bands by linear phase time aligned filters. The four bands are processed by a further four AGC'S before being fed to dynamic audio limiters on each band. Look ahead limiting and distortion cancelling clipping ensure your signal is kept to a strict maximum while maintaning crystal clear sound. A supersonic sample rate DSP stereo encoder provides MPX generation with fantastic stereo seperation.

The easy to use front panel control system and LED metering display afford the user with ease of use and setup while a cool windows application makes it even easier, and more fun.

GENERAL QUESTIONS

Q: Do you ship to Brazil/Zanzibar/Afrika/Australia/New Zealand......?
A:
Yes, of course. We ship worldwide. We do however not accept credit cards from Indonesia, especially Java.

Q: Do you have a representative in Brazil/Zanzibar/Afrika/Australia/New Zealand......?
A:
No. But we are currently looking for distributors for South America (Venezuela, Peru, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico).

Q: How do I become your distributor?
A:
Contact our sales and ask for info package. For a start, you need to be a registered business, speak and write English well and have a decent website.

Q: I sent you a question but you never replied!
A:
Please check your e-mail settings. You would be surprised how many people mis-type their own e-mail address and how many have incorrectly set their e-mail reply-to addresses. We can't help you unless you provide a valid e-mail address and set your reply-to address correctly. It is extremely frustrating to write an extensive answer and see it bounce since e-mail is not valid.
Lately, people are using SPAM filters. Quite often such a filter will delete a valid e-mail (ours). Sometimes your ISP installs such a filter without your prior knowledge. MSN is notorious for that.

Q: I have no money, please give me a free transmitter.
A:
We are not a charity organization, but we did send a few free units in extreme conditions, to support democracy in Yugoslavia and some other countries. Your application will most likely be denied.

Q: What is RDS?
A:
Radio data system. Used in most parts of the world except US (lately there as well). It is used to display information, such as time, station name, traffic information, radio text messages.... on the display of your FM receiver.

Q&A ABOUT SHIPPING AND PAYMENT

Q: How much is shipping to Zanzibar/Afrika/Australia/New Zealand......?
A:
Shipping is calculated automatically by our ordering system for every country. If you wish to see how much the shipping is, just go through the ordering process.

Q: I am from EU; Do I have to pay and duties or import taxes?
A:
PCS Electronics is based in EU, you do not have to pay any import tax. The only exception are the products shipping from the US (Comet antenna, filters, SWR meter).

Q&A ABOUT RADIO INTERFERENCE

Q: If I use filters I can put my antenna right next to my neighbor's TV antenna without any problems right?
A:
Wrong! The low pass filters only attenuate harmonics. If harmonics are not the cause of your problem (they almost never are - our exciters are very clean!) removing them won't help. What causes 99% of all radio interference problems? YOUR FUNDAMENTAL SIGNAL!!! A high power fundamental signal in CLOSE PROXIMITY to ANY type of receiving equipment (TV, radio, telephone, PA system etc.) will blow right past any tuner or filtering on this equipment and enter the amplifier stage along with the intended signal where it will cause interference. This type of interference is called "fundamental overload". All the harmonic filters in the world won't help in this very common situation. What will help? Increase the standoff distance (vertical, horizontal or both) between your antenna and what you are interfering with. This is one of the many reasons high power FM radio station antennas are located on high towers. A 100 KW radio station with a 20' antenna would cause a lot of RFI even though the harmonic levels meet FCC requirements.

QUESTIONS ABOUT SETTING UP A TRANSMITTER

Q: I want to start a radio station and I know nothing about it! What do I need?
A:
Hmm, think small and simple for a start.
- PCI MAX is perfectly suited for this application. All you need is a PC and PCI MAX card (see under PC FM transmitters). You can even upgrade this package up to 5W later by adding a booster amplifier. You will also need an antenna. And coaxial cable to connect it to the card. A small antenna is included with PCI MAX. See below for range!
-CYBER MAX LCD is another perfect starter transmitter. It comes with everything built in, even the RDS encoder, if you want one. It also has built-in power supply so you'll only need antenna to start transmtting. The quality of Cyber MAX LCD exceeds the quality of PCI MAX ULTRA!

Also look at complete setups under products, they include more/less everything and also give good explanation what and why is needed.

Q: I'm an advanced user and want more than a simple PC based solution for playing MP3 around the house. I want a stand-alone solution.
A:
Hmm, than have a look at the boxed transmitters. What you need to start is:
1.) FM transmitter (MAX PRO I, MAX PRO II or MAX PRO III, Cyber MAX LCD, Cyber MAX FM...), preferably in an enclosure with stereo encoder.
2.) Power supply, 13.8 - 15V / 2A. This needs to be well stabilised DC power supply, the kind that hams and CB-operators use. You could use car battery as well. Some of the units come with integrated power supply (check product description). Cyber MAX LCD does not need one as it is built in.
3.) Antenna. We recommend COMET or RPL 0205.
4.) Coaxial cable to connect the transmitter and the antenna. Check under accesories on the left.

Optional items:
-SWR/power meter
-Audio processing equipment; compressor, sound processors...
-Optional extra power amplifiers

CYBER MAX LED STEREO

But this picture says more than a hundred words...

Q: How much range can I expect?
A:
This is an estimate, it is unpossible to predict your range, there are too many parameters involved:

PCIMAX: This unit was designed to cover a large house and a yard. However, it has been reported to cover up to about 3/4 of a mile.

Range is limited by:

a) Optical visibility. This can sometimes be up to 40 miles, if you are looking out from a mountain top.

b) Interference from other stations on the same or close-by frequency.

c) Transmission power. Even if optical visibility is 20 miles, 1W probably won't get you more than a mile. If 50 Watt ERP is used, it's very likely that 20 miles of range will be achieved. This is because 50 Watt ERP is ample power to propagate a strong signal 20 miles. If 1 Million Watts of power is used, it is very likely that signal will only propagate just over 20 miles. This is because the range is limited as described in point a) above.

Assuming the antenna has a clear view, the frequency is clear and an average (poor) quality portable receiver is used, typical transmission power vs range figures are as follows:

Power watts ERP Range (miles)
1W approximately 1-2 (1.5-3km)
5W approximately 3-4 (4-5km)
15W approximately 6 (10km)
30W approximately 9 (15km)
100W approximately 15 (24km)
300W approximately 30 (45km)

It is not normally possible to have hundreds of miles of range on FM broadcast band (87.5MHz to 108MHz), even if terrain is perfectly flat and you have your antenna on the top of the mountain and you're using killowatts of power. It is occasionally possible due to special atmospheric conditions, such as inversion etc. Such special conditions happen rarely and only last for a very short time so it is not possible to rely upon them in any way. In order to cover so many square miles it is necessary to setup a grid of transmitters and link them via wireless audio links, making sure they do not transmit at the same frequency as they could interfere.

Q&A ABOUT PCI MAX CARDS

Q: Is PCI MAX stereo?
A:
Yes, PCI MAX IS STEREO! It can even do RDS!

Q: Can I connect RDS MAX to PCI MAX to make it RDS capable?
A:
Yes, instructions are included with every RDS MAX. Note that PCI MAX now supports RDS directly.

Q: Can PCI MAX transmit any PC audio including Internet radio, either Real Player or Windows Media, or is this strictly for use with MP3 files? Looks like a nice product.
B:
Absolutely. It will transmit anything your sound card plays. You can transmit "Everything" audio. You can even connect it to an external MD player, CD player, cassette deck, turntable, audio mixer......The sky is the limit.

Q: Do I need an external power supply for PCI MAX?
A:
No, it is entirely powered by the PC. If you choose to use the 15W amplifier, you can use the power supply provided with the booster to power PCI MAX. Note that this eliminates the remaining noise originating from the PC. You can also buy your own stabilized DC power supply (13.8V / 1A) to power PCI MAX, just make sure that the middle is positive (+). They are available from radio shack or electronics/CB/ham stores.

Q: What is the range of PCI MAX?
A:
High power setting will cover the house and a large yard, with external antenna possibly up to half a mile. With 15W amplifier you are likely to cover about 1- 5 miles, depending on antenna and terrain configuration.

Q: Tell me more about the 15W amplifier!
A:
This is actually a two-stage unit with a high quality low pass filter at the output. Harmonics are at least 60dB under the carrier. You are advised to consult the legal limitations in your country before you attempt to use it.

Q: Where is the driver?
A: Drivers for all our products for WinXP, 2000, 98, Me, and 95 (March 2002)

Q: Do you have any cool DSP programs for PCI MAX?
A: Here is a cool DSP program, with a limiter, low pass filter, preemphasis, multi band compressor, worth every penny and highly recommended for PCI MAX and ISA MAX. There are a few included on installation CD as well. Click here to get Audio stocker, a WinAmp plugin. It is a limiter/compressor for PCI MAX/ISA MAX that will make your station louder

Q: I can't get it to install, no matter what I do!
A: Check the support section, there is a new section dedicated to reporting problems and installing PCI MAX ULTRA.

Q: I've got problems in Windows 2000
A: It seems that some problems just can't get it to work under Windows 2000. We recommend using Windows XP, Windows 98 or NT in all such cases..

Questions and answers about MAX PRO I, MAX PRO II and MAX PRO III

Q: What is the difference between MAX PRO I and MAX PRO II?
A: MAX PRO II basically provides the same functionality, but does not have LCD display. In order to set the frequency you need to setup jumpers. Also, MAX PRO II does not have the tuning facility so you have to use a V-meter to set it for maximum power.

Q: What is the difference between MAX PRO I and MAX PRO III?
A: MAX PRO III is an entirely different beast. It has been redesigned and upgraded to offer more power, no-tune wideband operation, SWR and temperature protection, extremely high grade of RF field immunity etc. In short, MAX PRO III is a much better transmitter.

Q: What kind of power supply do I need?
A: You need a stabilised DC power supply. 13.8 to 15V at 2A should be enough for MAX PRO I or MAX PRO II. MAX PRO III requires a stronger power supply, up to 4A. You can get that either from us (see accesories on the left), Radio Shack or any HAM shop.

Q: What is the range of MAX PRO I, II and III?
A: It really depends. Anywhere from 1 mile to 20 miles, depending on your transmitting position, your antenna and terrain configuration. Its really hard to predict range without doing an actual testing. MAX PRO III has 50-100% more range when compared to the two younger brothers.

Q: Can I increase power/range?
A: Yes, you can add an amplifier to any version of our MAX PRO transmitter. Make sure your amplifier has a low pass filter at the exit. You are advised to consult the legal limitations in your country before you attempt to use it.

Q: Do I have to use an output RF filter?
A: MAX PRO I, II and III have pretty good filters at the output making an extra filter basically unnecessary. However, some people will tell you that you can never have too much filtering. Its up to you to decide. If you're living in a densely populated area, you may opt for more filtering just to be sure. But it is not necessary.

Q: How do I make my old MAX PRO stereo?
A: Just order SE-3 or even better SE4 stereo encoder and hook it up to MAX PRO ...easy. Don't forget to disable preemphasis.

Q: What is the difference between the units in an enclosure and without enclosure (assembled)?
A: Technically there is no difference. But its hard to find an enclosure with a suitable LCD aperture. And all units in an enclosure are properly matched with the stereo encoder (levels are properly adjusted). And they look much better.

Q: Can I make an antenna myself?
A: Check the guides on the left, there are a few designs. Antenna is the most important factor as far as range is concerned, bad antenna will give you poor range even with a huge power output.

Q: Hello, I found your website while searching for an FM stereo transmitter solution that I might put on my boat so that when we have rafting parties with a bunch of friends (on their own boats) that we can all listen to the same music. Do you offer a solution that would allow me to plug in an audio source (such as a CD player) and broadcast it up to maybe a quarter mile to my friends radios?
A: Sure, check any of our transmitters. Perhaps PCI MAX with that LED module or MAX PRO I, II or III with stereo encoder. I'd use Comet antenna with these. Range on the water should be excelent. Remember that the transmitter takes 12-14V at 1.5A. PCI MAX has lowest power consumption of the lot.

Q: I am consultant to a childrens home campus. It is a campus of about one square mile. They wish to put in a low power radio station to serve just the campus. It will be run by the campus children about two hours an evening. I wish to know if your products may be suitable for this. Broadcasting will include music, interviews, and chit chat. I am use to dealing with large commercial broadcast facilities and have never put anything like this campus station together. Can you be of help?
A: Sure, check MAX PRO II stereo or MAX PRO I stereo. I'd use Comet antenna with these. Remember to order the power supply as well as the transmitter takes 14V at 2A.
