- Apr 02, 2018 -

The transmission distance depends on many factors, the antenna height installed on the basis of true distance, antenna gain, use environment, such as construction and other obstructions, receiver sensitivity, receiver antenna. The higher the antenna is installed, the more far-reaching the distance will be used in rural areas.

Example 5W FM transmitter in the city and home:

I have an American client that uses a 5W FM transmitter with a GP antenna in his hometown, tested in his car, it covers 10 kilometers (6.21 miles).

In my hometown, I tested the 5W FM transmitter with the GP antenna, which covers about 2 kilometers (1.24 miles).

I tested the GP antenna on the 5W FM transmitter, in Guangzhou, covering about 300 m (984 ft).
