Author's comments: This was written when LPFM rules had not yet jelled at the
FCC, so part of the text may read a little dated. And that (the author)
is preparing to launch LPAM "Rolling Valley Radio" this fall in Northern
Virginia a dozen miles outside of Washington DC.

I have used one of these LPB generation of low power AM transmitters. I used it on a licensed AM station required to protect Canadian stations on the same frequency at night. Our nighttime power level was 23 watts (10db below daytime). On a 175 foot tower at 990 KHz., the range was about 10-12 miles. Past that distance, the skywave made the signal unlistenable. Sounds like what happens to Part 15 AM stations doesn't it? But I digress. If you find one of these boxes on Ebay or elsewhere, buy it. They are a very high quality transmitter. And by the way, the similarities between the LPB boxes and the AM1000 Rangemaster are remarkable. Hmmmmm?
