LINKING ANTENNA A to B - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

I guess you have registered for the necessary license from the authorities in Jamaica?

Of course 8-)

They will have a frequency listing for Studio-Transmitter broadcast links.

Then you need to look around for suitable low-power transmitters and receivers for those bands.

The distance from your studio to Tx site is short, but rainfall in Jamaica is high at peak times in the wet season.

So look for channels around 900MHz, and look out for a shrouded yagi with a gain around 10dB, eg from Cellwave.

Another solution might be to lease a DSL line or ISDN circuits from the PTT. Assuming they offer you high reliability, that might be cheaper and give you a better overall quality. I know a commercial FM station owner in Germany who has leased 2xBRI ISDN circuits from Deutsche Telekom to do this link. Although 1xISDN (Right stereo) + 1xISDN (left stereo) at 64kbps each (ie BRI ISDN) was not enough bandwidth, he rented 2 ISDN BRI circuits at 128kbps each, and used one for the Left channel, one for the right channel, and used the Q channel at 9.6kbps for the station control data channel.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
