## What is the range of FM Transmitter?

Being low-powered, most transmitters typically have a short range of 100–300 feet (30–100 metres), depending on the quality of the receiver, obstructions and elevation.

**What is the maximum distance an FM Transmitter can broadcast without a license?**

approximately 200 feet

What is the maximum distance an FM transmitter can broadcast without a license? The quick answer is approximately 200 feet for an FM Transmitter covered under Part 15 (Read FCC Public Notice dated July 24, 1991). The full answer is much more complicated than that: 250 µV/meter @ 3 meters (also measured as 48 dBuV/m).

### How far will a 1 watt FM Transmitter go?

If the antenna can see 15 miles and say 1 Watt ERP of power used, it’s very likely that about 1 or 2 miles of range will result. This is quite simply because there is not enough power to propagate the signal 20 miles. If 50 Watt ERP is used, it’s very likely that 20 miles of range will be achieved.

**How far will a 15 watt FM transmitter reach?**

At 15 watts, the range increases to 5 miles, at 40 watts to 10 miles and at 100 watts to 15 miles. The general rule of thumb is it will take four times the power to double the transmission distance. Increase the transmission range of the FM antenna without increasing the power by raising the antenna.

## How far will a 500 watt FM transmitter reach?

Watts in ERP | Kilometers Rural area |
---|---|

100 | 24 |

300 | 42 |

500 | 54 |

1000 | 76 |

**How far will a 2000 watt FM transmitter reach?**

Watts in ERP | Kilometers Rural area |
---|---|

2000 | 108 |

4000 | 152 |

6000 | 187 |

10000 | 241 |

### What is the range of an FM transmitter?

If the antenna can see 20 miles, but say 1 Watt ERP of power used, it’s very likely that about 1 mile of range will result. This is quite simply because there is not enough power to propagate the signal 20 miles.

**How many miles can a radio station transmit?**

If you stand where the antenna is mounted and look out with a pair of binoculars, wherever you can see it is possible to transmit to. This can sometimes be up to 20, 30 even 40 miles if you are looking out from a mountain top. b) Other sources of interference or other stations operating on the same frequency.

## How much power does a 12 watt FM transmitter need?

A 12 Watt transmitter using a high gain antenna like the Aareff 5/8’s vertical which as a gain of 4.8 dBi, and using 25 metres of RG213 low loss coax would effectively double the power to 24 Watts ERP. ( 7 miles range )

**Why is the range of a radio signal infinite?**

In theory the range of a transmitted radio signal is infinite regardless of power used, basically it goes on and on forever until it encounters an obstruction. More power helps to penetrate any obstructions.
