Did you know?
  • The original Rudolph did not have a red nose. In that day and age, red noses were seen as an indicator of chronic alcoholism and Montgomery Ward didn’t want him to look like a drunkard. To complete the original picture, he was almost named Reginald or Rollo.
  • The Christmas wreath was originally hung as a symbol of Jesus. The holly represents his crown of thorns and the red berries the blood he shed.
  • The three traditional colors of most Christmas decorations are red, green and gold. Red symbolizes the blood of Christ, green symbolized life and rebirth, and gold represents light, royalty and wealth.
  • Tinsel was invented in 1610 in Germany and was once made of real silver.
  • The oldest artificial Christmas trees date back to the late 1800s and were made of green raffia (think grass hula skirts) or dyed goose feathers. Next the Addis Brush Company used their machinery that wove toilet brushes to create pine-like branches for artificial Christmas trees that were less flammable and could hold heavier decorations.
  • ‘Jingle Bells’ – the popular Christmas song was composed by James Pierpont in Massachusetts, America. It was, however, written for thanksgiving and not Christmas.
  • Coca-Cola was the first company that used Santa Claus during the winter season for promotion.
  • Hallmark introduced their first Christmas cards in 1915.
  • The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine. A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on that day.
  • Santa Claus's sleigh is led by eight reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder (variously spelled Donder and Donner), and Blixem (variously spelled Blixen and Blitzen), with Rudolph being a 20th-century inclusion.
  • Outdoor Christmas lights on homes evolved from decorating the traditional Christmas tree and house with candles during the Christmas season. Lighting the tree with small candles dates back to the 17th century and originated in Germany before spreading to Eastern Europe.
  • That big, jolly man in the red suit with a white beard didn’t always look that way. Prior to 1931, Santa was depicted as everything from a tall gaunt man to a spooky-looking elf. He has donned a bishop's robe and a Norse huntsman's animal skin. When Civil War cartoonist Thomas Nast drew Santa Claus for Harper's Weekly in 1862, Santa was a small elflike figure who supported the Union. Nast continued to draw Santa for 30 years, changing the color of his coat from tan to the red he’s known for today.
  • Christmas 2018 countdown has already begun. Will you be ready???
  • Why do we love Christmas? It's all about the traditions. In this chaotic world we can miss the "good old days." Christmas reminds us of that time.

If you read past posts most of the guys that are happy with their Fm Transmitters either have EDM---Ramsey----Mobile Black Box Those are built the best and have the best sound.........You could have a fantastic show but if the music sounds staticey & Crappy it takes a lot away from all your hard work. Do yourself a favor and don't settle for junk just because it's cheap..........I know cuz I've been there and done that, I learned my lesson the costly way. I currently have a Ramsey FM30 and couldn't be happier with it, the sound is almost commercial quality.

You'll have to go up and down the FM band and find a frequency that is not used or is very weak them set your transmitter to that frequency and you should be good to go!! Remember with that type of unit you will only broadcast maybe 500 ft. but that might be good enough.

The problem is these are very low end units the mobile black box is a 6000 unit and does only mono IMO thers a much better sound coming from the sterio units the other unit I think is HLLY and there bad news I read on another forum they ar not mfg to exact specs and can potentially interfere with rescue units FIRE-AMBULANCE-POLICE.........I think I stated in my other posts you GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!!! I look for lower end lights etc and get a better Transmitter My 2 cents>>>>>

The Ramsey FM25 & 30 are basicly the same units the major difference is on the 30 you can make all your adjustmsnts & settings on the front panel, on the 25 you have to do it inside the unit ...........If you have concerns about assemblying the unit you can do like I did and have some electronics shoppe in your town put it together for you.

yeah i do a bit. just would like to see the internals first hand or by pick they look like they layed it out as far as spaceing parts to be a bit easyer to put togeather.also hard to pay x amount of cash for a box of parts lol.one of the 30 systems was on e bay for 300 assembled but who knows if it was the real deal. so honestly what maker would you guys use over all...also a question holding me back.

Have used this for two seasons now with zero problems. It did need to have a 20db attenuator placed between the antenna and rf output to keep the range down to legal limits, however.

http://www.dagcoelec...m-transmitter-2

I used this Dagco transmitter I boughtoff ebay this last fall throughout thisChristmas season - no problems - knock on wood. With the small whip attached it broadcast a good 100 yards around my house, with the extendable whip antenna it broadcast a good city block, I thought about an attenuator, but didn't pursue. It has the range and didn't seem to drift.

Good luck,

Mike

I am new to the sequenced/music broadcasting area but I just bought a Ramsey 30B and WOW. With the built in rabbit ear(s) I can easily dial in the frequency that I choose and broadcast a clear and clean FM station all the way down the block. With an antenae I amsure it will reach much farther.

Taking the advice from others I wouldn't waste money on anything less than quality.

The instructions for building are pretty clear. If it's your first time soldering you probably should practice first.

Be careful what you wish for.....a good transmitter will mean folks sitting out in front of your house with their windows open and their stereo blarring. Neighbors two blocks away will hear TSO until they can't take it anymore.
