WARNING: BUYING and USING an FM transmitter is illegal in several countries. Make sure that it is legal to use in your country before you place an order.
Transmission Range: 100m-300m
This is one of the most powerful and reliable do-it-yourself(DIY) FM transmitters. It can easily transmit audio signals up to 200 meters because it has 3 transistors and 3 inductors. It is a do-it-yourself (DIY) kit. Basic soldering skills should help you to build this transmitter easily and it works perfectly on the first attempt. We are also selling a similar transmitter kit. The other transmitter has a volume controller and can take up to 9V which helps in transmitting signals up to 500 meters.
- Transmission range: 100m-300m (depending upon antenna length, test environment, power supply, and FM receiver )
- Audio and voice transmission: Transmit both audio or voice. The audio signal can reach 100m-300m depending upon the antenna of the receiver and used environment. For example, if you transmit from a higher building keeping the antenna by your window, the signals easily reach up to 300m. It is highly recommended that you test the transmitter in the open ground/space where there are no buildings or any other obstacles.
- First test: You can test the transmitter immediately after you assemble it. You can use any general FM radio
- Frequency range: 88Mhz-108Mhz.
- You can adjust the frequency.
- Antenna: if you use 20cm wire as an antenna, it can transmit up to 100m. With 40cm, it can transmit up to 200meters and with a 60cm long antenna, you can transmit up to 300 meters.
- Operating voltage: 3V-6V. We have tested using a 6V battery.
- Operating Current:3.3-29mA
- Audio Response:20Hz-15KHz
- Radio Frequency Power:-2dBM~15dBm
- Radio Frequency Output Impedance:50 ohm
- Board Size:50*30mm
- The Second Harmonic:>=-40dB
- Receiver Devices: General FM radio/cellphone which has FM radio function/Car FM radio(Recommended for testing)

What do you need to arrange yourself?
- Stereo audio cable- to connect from an audio source to the transmitter.
- 9V battery connector or any other kind of battery holder to power up the transmitter
- Antenna- You can use any 1-2mm thick and 20-40cm wire for antenna
- 3V-6V battery
- Any FM radio with telescopic antenna.
Didn’t work? This is how you troubleshoot.
- Check the transistors: There is a high chance that you soldered the transistors in the wrong spots. There are three transistors and all look the same. Make sure that you soldered S9014 and S9018 in their right spots.
- Look at the back of the PCB, make sure there is no short.
- The electret microphone polarity could be wrong.
- The battery connector could be connected incorrectly.
- Resistors soldered incorrectly.
- Check the polarity of 3mm LED.
If the transmitter is working, you would hear feedback on your FM radio. [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIVJloQtmlI]
