I have an SSTRAN AMT3000 and plan to use it purely for around my house to broadcast to my vintage radios. I have found the device performs very well in loft (attic) and would like to place it there with signal cables feeding it with audio and remote power control. Anywhere lower and coverage gets very patchy.
My only concern is right now its got to be 38 degrees or more up there, and I'm concerned I will lessen the life of my transmitter running it in such conditions. Does anyone do the same?
I wondered if I could use the supplied long wire antenna and feed it from the floor below with good quality coax? Im in the UK so we dont have part15 regs here requiring set lengths etc. General consensus is while not licensed, a clean transmitter such as this broadcasting to your own property is not an issue, and with the supplied wire antenna it cannot be heard outside of my own property.
What I dont want to do however is have significant losses on the signal I have, as right now coverage is perfect for my needs.
Any advice is much appreciated, I thought I'd ask here as this seems to be the authority on such transmitters,
