Subject: RE: Belkin Wireless FM Transmitter
From: Gary Wingert (gary_wingert_at_sonic.com)
The C.Crane digital FM transmitter is portable - battery-operated, also
includes AC adapter. A bit smaller than a pack of cigarettes with
telescoping antenna. http://www.ccrane.com/fm-transmitter.aspx
The FM25B from Ramsey is somewhat portable - it's in my car. About the
size of about 5 CD jewel cases stacked on top of each other, with a telescoping
antenna. Takes 9 VDC I think from either a wall wort or cigarette lighter
adapter. Also has a jack for a larger, more powerful antenna they also
sell that is a piece of PVC pipe around 4'-5' long, for longer transmission.
I'm told by the Ramsey techs that the FM25B has better circuitry and better
audio quality than the C.Crane but that the Crane model is better than any
of the Belkin and iLink-type devices. The fact that it has an external
antenna is huge, plus you can select any frequency, as I recall - not limited
to the 4 hard-coded ones.
The FM25B is frequency-selectable, too, via dip-switches inside.
