Hi, I wonder if anyone can help?
I’m currently working in Umeå, Sweden on a number of sound art projects. One of which is radio-based and is intended to be transmitted over FM for a full weekend (hopefully more than one) during the period when Umeå is European City of Culture in 2014.
I’ve worked in and around the content/production end of radio for a few years but have no experience whatsoever when it comes to hardware/engineering end of things. It only needs to transmit over a range of 3 or 4 km. Could anybody point me in some direction where I can find out:
- what basic hardware I’d need to broadcast with
- the possible cost implications of this (just a rough estimate)
- recommended place to get this equipment from (UK)
- any literature (online or in book-form) that I could use as a kind of ‘do-all bible’ to help in setting this up?
It would be preferable if it could be portable(ish) as it will hopefully be used in other areas in the future (toured if you like). Many questions I know but any help is very much appreciated! Thanks in advance.
