30W STEREO FM TRANSMITTER
This new FM transmitter has been developped to work in a stand alone mode.
In fact, 30W output power is enough to cover a small town about 15000 people.
The 30w mosfet amplifier included in this design has been already described on this website.
You will find below some pictures of this new homemade transmitter.
