    I need a comprehensive procedure in designing a commercial radio transmitter with total power of about 1KW.

    You're going to have to get a license from the FCC before you can power up the transmitter. They will have to pass on the design as well as granting you the license.

    I'm a final year student in a Polytechnic in Nigeria and I intend to design and construct a Transmitter for my final year project. It is not a neccessity that the total output power should be up to 1KW. All I need is a long range of transmission say about 5km. If the project is successful, a licence will be obtained from Nigeria Communications Comission befor it is put to use in the polytechnic.

    Frequency and modulation scheme would be helpful.

    Hello,

    In my PM I found this message:
    I think that 5 - 10 wats will be more than enough.
    For stability a crystal or PLL system will be OK.

    Greetings,
    Bertus

    Actually in the U.S., it's 1500W :)
