Part 15 FM rocks a little too
But it does have it's uses. I do have a CCrane Part 15 FM transmitter, which I use casually for various purposes (I've used it to broadcast audio to radios for outdoor drive-in movie type setups, and experimented with it along with a receiver as a STL to for 12v battery powered Rangemaster AM transmitter.
The CCrane does sound and work great as long as your within the confines of your house or yard, but beyond that the signal is lost.
Tonight I stumbled across a well done video by a knowledgeable young kid who shows you step-by-step how to build a tiny FM transmitter using some basic parts from your local Radio Shack store.
The sound quality and range (based on the demonstration in the video) was comparable to that of my CCrane transmitter, but for a fraction of the price.
Check it out!;
