Legal Part 15 Transmitter

Hi everyone, I have been doing research on and off for the past 3 years looking for a transmitter that is Part 15 certified and has decent distance. I do like the talking house transmitters but I can't seem to verify the Part 15 certification ID they provide. 


I'm looking for a transmitter where all I have to do is connect my mixer, plug the transmitter in, and broadcast and have the device Part 15. I really don't want the FCC to come knocking lol 

Here's the Certification

Here's the FCC certification for the talking house AM transmitter

Hello TheStick:

In your previous posts you were experimenting with FM transmitters and now it appears you have switched to AM since you mention the Talking House.

Our member Jim Henry just had a great success and is well pleased with his installation of a ProCaster Certified Transmitter.

I did actually end up finding the certification after a bit more research, thanks Mark. 

Yeah in the past I was looking towards FM broadcasting but based on some of the threads here it seems like AM is the way to go. The procaster seems like a good transmitter however Its a bit to expensive. The talking house seems like a good transmitter to start with. Is there anything that I need to do to the transmitter in order to be Part 15? or is it Part 15 out of the box? 


Thanks for your reply everyone. 

Out of the Box Plus The Rules

The Talking House transmitter has come in many versions and, according to my information, is now called the i.A.M. Version TH5.0, which has been re-engineered to have better characteristics than earlier versions which are prone to have audio and signal problems.

YES....if certified with number it can be used as it comes or as per install instructions. You don't want to change anything, nothing you need to do.


Thanks everyone for your

Thanks everyone for your input! I had another question. I've heard that this transmitter can get upwords of about a mile in range which is amazing, however, wouldn't that be breaking FCC Part 15 rules of only 200 feet? I mean I know the device is certified but I'm not sure if that has any effect in bypassing the 200 foot rule. 


Thanks, Devon. 

No 200 foot rule for AM. 

No 200 foot rule for AM.  your allowed 100 mW into a 10 foot long antenna.


A good AM transmitter like a Procter can reach 2 miles.
