What about a 1-5w FM transmitter?

Not legal.

What about a 1-5w FM transmitter?

We do this for city marathons where the coverage is quite large (ie, city communities)

Not legally in the USA... YMMV in Canada or elsewhere.

That is unacceptably illegal everywhere in the USA.

Yes, the initial outlay to make this happen certainly would fit into the budget.  However, the potential 6 figure fine that could come with it would cause a bit of financial strain.  I do wish the FCC would make temporary licenses available in markets to do this sort of thing, but I doubt that will ever happen.

Up here it is (with permit/license), so that leads me to an OT question... What are you guys doing for "drive in" style events?

I was thinking just using an IEM would work great, since the receiver would be battery operated, and I could just velcro it to the speaker, but wondering if any would have the ability to reliably broadcast about 3 blocks away.


Use Unity intercom over cellular connection. latency is very low and you can send up to 64 separate feeds to the various towers.  Each tower will need  a cell phone running on power.

Project update:

I picked up a few Axis C8033 devices. They are only a couple hundred each.  Aside from firmware being WAY out of date on them (one came with 1.9 and the other 1.8, with the current version being 10.x) after updating, configuration on a local network is dead simple.  Set up one as a 'leader' and the others show up and get connected.

Out of the box, it was set with an audio buffer that had 120ms delay.  I found in the advanced settings where I could drop that to 0, and now there's almost no perceptible latency at all.  Impressive!

Next step, to make things wireless, I attached them to a pair of Ubiquity isostations, which I've used in the past for wireless hops of about this length, and so far, everything is working as expected.

I should be able to stick them up on tripods for the event and call it a day.

But, then, here's where the fun comes in.  I was able to also configure them as SIP devices and tie them into my phone system.  Latency of the phone system is roughly 100ms, which is totally acceptable for this sort of distance.  Now, if I can find an internet connection, I can connect to the broadcast.  Very very cool little devices.

Yep, it works off cellular, or just pick up WIFI from a neighboring business.  Easy as can be.

I've done this sort of thing quite a bit. Lectrosonics makes the best equipment for this type of link that I have seen anywhere. It is quite bulletproof.
