FM Pirates in the Netherlands.
« on: January 14, 2019, 1916 UTC »
Hello,

I found 2 pirates on the FM band last saturday. I wonder if they make it kinda legal here as one of them is broadcasting for 4 years straight. I would dream about making my own little radio station too, but I am newb into broadcasting and I don't know if my current transmitter (made from a Raspberry and an outdoor antenna) is useful for broadcasting music.. I would love to build a transmitter myself but I need help with it from someone who has experience in this kind of stuff. Bad part about the Raspberry is that it is low voltage and gets hot very quickly. Signal is unstable (I can even receive it on the shortwave bands!)

Any ideas for improving the setup? I would love to know more about broadcasting and building a nice transmitter myself.

Kind regards,
Telegrapher.

Lots of CH stuff on eBay for FM.
'It's better to give than receive' so why RX when you can TX!

                            Buy one from me, NOW!

Great discounts on ALL my transmitters if purchased via HFUnderground

Thanks for the quick reply. I see in your Signature that u'r also selling transmitters? If so, what kind of transmitters do u sell? And are they cheap to ship to the Netherlands? I would rather buy them from someone who has interest in the RF hobby than from a wholesaler who just makes them without quality in mass production.. Let me know if u have something available like a webshop or something. I would love to support others who dedicate into this kind of stuff :)

Kind regards,
Telegrapher.
