    Hello everyone...looking for some help/advice here. My name is Tim Wilbert from Rochester, NY. Our family has a Christmas Tree farm with a life size nativity scene including live animals as an attraction. My grandfather had originally built the nativity with timed lights as well as audio over speakers-it was very elaborate but involved a lot of set up and maintenance. We are now looking to try to utilize and FM transmitter with the story of the nativity on loop so that people would be able to tune in. I apologize as I am quite unfamiliar with all of this and am looking for any advice you may be able to offer. Not sure the best way to get an audio file to play on loop through an FM transmitter...what devices would be needed/recommended.

    Thank you in advance for your time.

    Could you get a license to transmit on the FM band in your location?

    By all means buy the ready-made unit.

    Building solid, stable FM transmitter is not a simple project.
