Overview

Discover the new autonomous FM transmitter.
The SOLAR FM is a unique FM transmission solution designed to operate in isolated areas with limited electrical infrastructure, covering up to 10 km areas. 

Capable of receiving audio from FM and satellite as well as analog and/or AES inputs, the system comes complete with appropriate antennas and a dedicated smartphone application for control. 

The standard system utilizes solar power with AC power  back-up and wind power capability is available as an option. 

Designed to operate in harsh environmental conditions, the SOLAR FM can be easily deployed in mountainous areas, forests and deserts. Once securely fastened to a mast, the user simply needs to connect the energy input and audio sources and they are ready to broadcast!
