Item is used in very good cosmetic condition and has been tested to confirm correct operation. The photos show the actual item for sale. These are probably the best sounding low power transmitters available in my experience and the output power is easily adjusted in 0.05W increments via the front panel so you can dial in just enough power to get the job done while observing any regulatory limits in emitted signals. By making a purchase, the buyer indicates that they understand the legal requirements for operation of this device within their jurisdiction and indemnifies the seller against any repercussions of unauthorized use.

- The FM-800 is a professional grade mono FM transmitter operating in the commercial FM broadcast band (87.9 - 107.9MHz/200KHz channel spaching).
The FM-800 can be used as a stand alone FM transmitter or as an FM exciter for greater RF power (RF power amplifier required).
The FM-800 series are one of the easiest available FM transmitters to program and operate, thanks to the latest devlopment in digital programmation circuitry. It is now possible to digitaly program the frequency and the RF power with accessible direct dial switches on the front panel. Manual tuning or calibration becomes a thing of the past with these FM transmitters.
- The FM-800 series are currently the most affordable, stable and trouble free FM transmitters available on the market today thanks to its new auto-compensation circuitry that will assure optimum RF linearity on a temperature range of -50C to +50C (-58F to +122F).
Decade transmitters are intended for use in low power broadcast stations, community and campus radio but can also be used (where allowed) for multi-lingual conferences, play by play broadcast inside arenas and stadiums (the FM-800 series are able to cover a 42,000 seats stadium when used with good quality FM walkmans at the receiving end). Applications are endless...
