India is unlike many western countries where getting an FM station licence is easy. India fears that independent radio might be used in exposing govt wrongdoings, thats why it fears giving licenses to small individuals or orgs.
and also wanna know whether we can individually setup community radios without license and if so how much money for license ...can a individual can afford it?
No. Only NGO's and educational institutions of three years standing allowed to set up community FM radio. of 50W power. You will be arrested if you set up any kind of Broadcast station in India. No question of a license., and you will be a "sitting duck" to trace !
cost is not given..and range also
I had given the link .
of one company after google search for 20 minutes getting the proper search term.
Now the range depends on weather ,the antenna used, power ,output/line of sight, terrain etc. For Price you can email the company.
Hi guyz, I wud like to know whether we hav to get any official licences for broadcasting inside a building block using fm. we are going to conduct a technical symp in our college and we are goin to air the announcements in tat fm inside our campus (only single block)
@sir_lon Contact TF (044)24960275 or TF 24960234 on working days/during working hours after 1000AM. Try tomorrow. If the power is less than 100 mW, permission may not be necessary. FM B/C band is very crowded now, ( 88-108 MHz), and every likely hood your broadcast is heard in a radius of 1 Km ( depending on power/antenna height etc). Use a very short indoor antenna at ground level / GF room level.Post details of the Fm transmitter being used. Min Power freq to use /commercial / "homebrewed" in lab.Check with College authorities , whether they have an experimental Wireless license issued by WPC. Contact ANNA University Guindy "Electronics Dept". May be they can give you some info.
