Hello! I'm having problems setting up the Whole House Transmitter. I've searched my best broadcasting station, but the audio sounds like it's coming out of $2 pair of ear phones when plugged to my pc. I've also tried my iPhone and the audio sounds great, but has a little fuzz. Any suggestions? Is zara radio free and would that help improve pc audio? How can I change the antenna to the longer one that was included?

thank you!

The way I made mine work last year was to put the "not legal for the USA" antenna on it. I could get about 50-75 yards with it. I also found that if you turn the volume down on the pc and adjust the WHT volume for your sound. Also, there is supposed to be a switch under a label somewhere that if you flip it, you get a little better reception.

Without the extra length on the antenna, I took my WHT and Laptop outside inside my truck, started a sequence and had nothing but static at about 2 feet from the truck antenna. That was unacceptable. This year I bought a Ramsey.

Been around this forum for over 2 years and can't recall anyone stating they were really happy with the WHT. Most will tell you your title says it all .

My suggestion is to send it back and get you one from www.dagcoelectronics.com . I started out with the WHT and even after modifying the unit and adding a booster and outside antenna, I never could get the results I needed. The unit below is the way to go. I now get close to a mile with mine. I could not be more pleased with the transmitter.

I purchased the same unit earlier this year and it appears to perform very good from my initial tests. The sticker on mine says it came from www.elecsky.com - I think I paid about $50 + $25 shipping for it on ebay. Just search for CZH-05B and you will find it sold on many websites for about the same price.

I own one of these as well. Second year for mine,very pleased with it. Out of my basement ,it reaches out to about a half mile then drops off quickly. I use the little rubber antena that came with it. If I recall correctly , you're not to power it up without an antena hooked up. Best deal is to purchase the combo setup, comes with everything you'll need.

Jerry are you running it at 500mw or 100mw? I'm running it the 100mw setting volume set about 10 o'clock and can reach about 2.5 blocks then fades out. On the 500mw setting was reaching about a mile. Moving mine to the basement to try to knock it down more. Hoping for a 1 block radius.
