Optimal location for your transmitter?

Thanks the advice. I would only need to broadcast about 20-30 feet. I got the Whole House Transmitter. I wish I had not gotten it after I have read some of the comments and the reviews though. I might return it and get something else. I want something that is really easy to use and no soldering required. Any experience with Dagco Electronic ones?

I put mine on the front porch and it still sucks, it will only reach about 100 feet. I think something is wrong with it.

 

Or it's keeping you within legal limits. You don't need to have the black vans show up, that would be bad, just sayin....

I have mine in the basement next to the show computer. Range is about 4 houses up the street in both directions. More than far enough for the show. i may even lower the antenna a bit and tighten it up a little more. No need to spread it farther than I need to. And of course lessens the chance anyone will have an issue with it.

I will say, I am (ONE) of the very, very few that is using the whole house transmitter without any issues.  This will be the 3rd year using it. I have it mounted in my garage on the wall next to the garage door and the antenna is running up the wall.

Whole house transmitter 2 as well, year # 2, transmits roughly 100 yds in both directions, no complaints from me! I mount mine next to my front window and zig zagged the antenna across the window.

I'm using the Whole House transmitter 2 and even with the stubby antenna, it transmits over a block in all directions. However, the stereo is only good for a couple hundred feet and then changes to mono. With the included wire antenna, I transmit stereo all the way.
