I'm thinking of using an FM25 for an "unofficial college station" at a small art school. I want broadcasts to mainly reach people in a building across the street from a building I own, across a broad boulevard, maybe half a block away with no obstructions... perfect line of sight for the department where the signal is intended to be received, so students can share broadcasts of their favorite tunes. I'd let everybody have a chance to make mp3 playlists that would be broadcast from a computer on a daily schedule.
My building is in a densely populated area, and I don't want to risk bothering people on the other side of my building. I'd like to just beam the signal at the school building with a little gain, and have the signal not very strong in the other direction.
Beyond the building I am trying to "hit," there is a freeway and a railroad yard, so I don't think that I will cause any trouble in that direction.
Anybody got a simple, cheap solution? I'm real new at this, so don't be afraid of "talking to me like I'm stupid." I'll take no offense at very elementary instruction. [img]smile.gif[/img]
The building has a mostly glass front, and only one or two solid frame walls to penetrate. I think the FM25 has enough juice if I get some directional gain. If not, I can probably place it inside the building I am trying to serve. I was only thinking of putting the gear in another building so nobody knows where to go to steal it! [img]smile.gif[/img]
