Range Extender (RE2.5)

Outdoor Antenna & Tuner

The Range Extender increases the effective signal range of a Talking House (i A.M. Radio) Transmitter from hundreds to more than a thousand feet by providing a simple, professional means of installing the transmitting antenna outdoors in a weatherproof package.

The Talking House (i A.M. Radio) line of products is unique as the only such license-free system certified under FCC Part 15.219 with a variable length of coaxial cable in its approved design. This allows the transmitter to operate in a protected location where it may be set up and monitored conveniently – a location not exposed to theft or elements such as wind damage, moisture intrusion or lightning strikes.
