You could build the nrg/veronica 1 watt transmitter designed by steve before he designed the pro 3, theres schematics, pcb layout and parts list availble on line, i've built it lots of times and works first time every time, i've never had any problems with it, all the parts are easy to get old of and are not expensive, the audio quality is excellent and just a good all round transmitter, it should suit your needs for a low power tx.

This is the link http://72.52.208.92/~gbpprorg/lpfm/index.html

Hi everyone, I've recently arrived her in New Zealand and
loving the country. I'm working at Southern Broadcast and
noticed we supply the BW Broadcast TX5 FM transmitter for
LPFM use - http://www.bwbroadcast.com/fm-transmitters/tx5-
v2-fm-transmitter/48/product

Seem to be quite a few out there, I was curious if anyone
here is using one and looking forward to hear their
feedback.

Thanks for the reply Ifinity, is this you -
https://www.facebook.com/Ifinityfm ? Do you have an online
stream to check out?

Thanks for the note of Pits FM, I'll take a look. It's the
company I work for, Southern Broadcast that sells the TX5
on TradeMe. I'm new to New Zealand having moved from the UK
and want to learn more about the radio industry here -
including LPFM.

Thanks again for the reply.

yes thats us and yes we do have several streams as we
have 5 stations and are launching 5 more by xmas. our
website is down at the moment but you can check out our
stream here

http://www.veemi.com/watch?v=Thepeoplescoalition

also you can check out our record label at
https://www.facebook.com/ThePeoplesCoalition?

We are on a mission to create 50 low power stations
nationwide so as we can give underground kiwi artists a
chance to get there music out there and also bring back
the chance for people to gain radio experience in thier
local town.

Ifinity as a brand run by independent operators is our
main goal!

always keen to meet people that run or are involved in
low power stations.

Greg

Thanks for the link Greg, but it says "The broadcast is
offline, please check back later".

Strong goal you have and sounds like good progress if
launching another 5 stations by Christmas. Are they all
LPFM broadcasts or web streaming only? Will they all be
networked when you have 50 - with local shows from kiwi
artists?

Sounds like an interesting project to get people involved
with radio and the 'business end' of broadcasting. I
would have thought that this experience could really help
some of the artists in the long run.

Wierd i just checked that stream it i was working fine.
all our stations will be lpfm broad casts as well as
online streaming. they will be able to network via the
streams an choose which shows they wish to play but still
be able to broadcast from one location. i have found
veemi to be a solid free platform to stream on.

yes it will help artists get there music out there as it
does now with the 5 stations we currently operate. kiwi's
have the best music by far and there is so much unheard
of talent out there. do you run a low power station as
well??

feel free to add me on facebook. greg ozzie selman

Hi Greg,

Just checked again this morning and working fine and
sounding good :)

As I said it sounds like an interesting model, getting
people involved at a local level but also having plenty
of other sources of streams to pull from when not
broadcasting something live. Are you managing to get much
income from the ads being aired? I would have thought
having a larger network will make selling ads and getting
better rates much easier?

As I mentioned I work at Southern Broadcast - I have
experience of the kit but want to learn more about the
radio industry in New Zealand (I moved from the UK a
couple of months ago). We are opening a showroom for
broadcasters to come and play with the latest tech in
Albany, on the North Shore of Auckland and will be
running an LPFM from a demo studio here.

You'll have to drop round if you're ever up in Auckland?

I've added you on FB too, cheers Greg.

All the best,
Dave
