I bought one of these 7w FM transmitters on Ebay yesterday.
Here's a link. http://www.ebay.com/itm/CZE-7C-7W-FM-Transmitter-Stereo-PLL-Broadcast-Radio-Station-Antenna-76-108MHz-/161089004690?pt=US_Ham_Radio_Transmitters&hash=item2581a72492
I want to know, are they legal in NZ? I know they are 7w, and the maximum legal power for unlicensed people is 1w, and thankfully they say the unit can be switched, to transmit at 1w only, even if I did transmit at maximum power, the signal won't go far, as it's a small antenna, and we live in a dip in the road, surrounded by trees.
Just out of interest, how power is 7w anyway, and how does it usually go, under best conditions, line of sight etc?
Are these devices legal to import into NZ, I looked on Customs, and related websites before I bought it, and the closest thing to being banned, are "Radio Jammers", and this is a transmitter.
Since customs said nothing about it being banned, I went ahead and bought it, but I just thought I'd check, in case, when it arrives, I start broadcasting, and then I get a knock on my door from the police.
