Hey, I bought a Ramsey FM25B two years ago. It was assembled by Christmas in Cruces so its better than anything I could have done. Anyway, it is pretty fuzzy this year. I already checked that radio station website everyone uses and my frequency is still excellent.

When the song has a loud part it is extra-fuzzy, when it is soft, the song plays fine through the transmitter. Maybe I am playing the song to loud from my computer? I remember three years ago when I set it up I had to adjust some knobs inside the transmitter. Do they loose their position and possibly need to be readjusted?

Thanks for the help.

I had a similar problem to this a couple years ago. I purchased some line conditioners and they really helped. They are pretty cheap and I placed them on the power cord to my computer as well as the power cord to my transmitter. Might be something you want to consider.

Assuming the location of your transmitter has not changed in relation to your pc, also assuming you are using the same power supply and power/audio cables, you might consider a quick check to see if you can fix your "fuzzy" audio, first by lowering the audio output of the pc, using the volume control (software) panel in Windows.

If that clears the problem up, you were overdriving the input of the transmitter.

It may also be due to transmitting a little off frequency (ie on 105.0 instead of 104.9). That also is a simple fix, and is often responsible for "fuzzy" sound.

If still not resolved, you may have a problem with the transmitter itself.

Poor sounding audio may be arising from an audio/if stage failure in a transmitter, which is often due to a single failed component.

Let us know how you make out.

Ben, you are clearly overdriving the transmitter. It will cause huge distortion in your transmission, especially during the "louder" points of the music. Just turn the volume down on the computer (that sounds like it was the only part of this setup that you changed this year too) and you should be ready to put your show into action!
