I'm looking for 200-400W Shortwave AM transmitter, because I want to start my own FREE radio on Shortwave and to cover most of Europe. I don't want something special, just transmitter with power of 200W or more, frequency tuning and audio input to connect to my laptop. Where I can buy one? I'm completely newbie.

Hello and welcome!

If you are a complete newbie, I suggest reading this and other forums on the topic. There is far more involved than the transmitter (it's actually the last step).

- Programming
- Schedule
- Location
- Safety (Is your location congruent to and are you capable of safe setup? Will your location be interfering with emergency or essential services?)
- Sound processing
- Filters
- Antenna(s)
- What transmitter would be effective? (this takes a bit of engineering. Your QTH may be ideal get out all over the EU with 20W, or it may be in a hole and it's 100KW or forget about it)

If you don't want to go theough that, I suggest you limit yourself to 5 or 10W and go for a small community station.

Cheers!

In my home country no one monitor the shortwave bands and my transmitter will be in a place, high in the mountain, in a small village with 50 people popullation. I have read a lot about the pirating on shortwave and I'm going to broadcast four or five hours a day

In the Balkans there are no functioning radio tracking stations. :D
Good luck with your hobby!

HI there,

you should ask any people at the following chat for such kind of transmitter :

www.easyshopdiscountzone.com/radio/pirate/english/

From time to time there will be any of them, who are able to build such a transmitter
(e.g. you can ask Cupid if he will build such one for you, only a tip!).

Greetings (also from the mountains here!),
Caroline.
