Quick Answer: How Far Do FM Transmitters Work?

How far will a 100 watt FM transmitter reach?

At 15 watts, the range increases to 5 miles, at 40 watts to 10 miles and at 100 watts to 15 miles.

The general rule of thumb is it will take four times the power to double the transmission distance.

Increase the transmission range of the FM antenna without increasing the power by raising the antenna..

How far will a 50 watt FM transmitter reach?

If 50 Watt ERP is used, it’s very likely that 20 miles of range will be achieved. This is because 50 Watt ERP is ample power to propagate a strong signal 20 miles. If 1 Million Watts of power is used, it is very likely that signal will only propagate just over 20 miles.

How far will a 15w FM transmitter broadcast?

1 to 2 milesI have the antenna outside and the unit broadcasts very clear unless I overdrive the line input. Very clear and professional sound. It will broadcast 1 to 2 miles and does the job for our church excellently.

Are FM transmitters dangerous?

Yes, it’s just as bad for you, and almost as bad as running upstairs two at a time. In other words, transmitters and radio waves are harmless (unless you do something really stupid like standing in front of a high-power beam).
