    The EDM transmitter works very well and is a favourite for many users with good range and sound quality

    But if your range is not the best then one way to increase range is to make a home made FM antenna which is fairly straight forward. There are plenty of links if you just do a google search on 'build FM antenna' you will find that this can dramatically increase your range, of course antenna location/elevation also plays a big role

    have the same as LawrenceDriveLights, no problems it has two settings- high and a low, run the low setting 500m radius. Use it from inside the house, plugged into headphone jack on the computer, very clear and no distortion unless I crank it up way too far. Keep transmitter at a lower volume and increase windows volume to around 40 on the slider and all good. Also cheap.
    Cheers Boof63
