An FM Translator/LPFM Setup
Nearly 4,000 FM translators exist across the United States. The job of these little stations is to rebroadcast in areas where the parent station cannot be received. They all have a similar setup as the one above with a small transmitter, a signal receiver or input device, and an antenna. The first picture is of an omnidirectional antenna which radiates in all directions. At the top of the second picture is a FM receiver and below that is the transmitter. An FM translator can be setup for about $3000.
