FCC Certified Transmitter List
FM transmitters operating in the LPFM service must be certified and bear a label with "FCC ID" on it.
Transmitters that claim to be "type accepted", "type approved", "type verified" or only have a "Supplier's Declaration of Conformity" do not meet this requirement. This includes many "hand me down" transmitters donated from other broadcast stations.
Certified transmitters with an ID label, must be certified for use under Part 73.
Transmitters that have the FCC ID label on it have gone through a process where it was sent to a testing lab and the test results have been filed with the FCC.
While transmitters without the FCC ID label can be used in other broadcast services (full-service FM, FM translators, FM boosters, etc.), they cannot be used in LPFM.
The following is a list of transmitters that have been certified by the FCC's Office of Engineering and Technology and are known to REC Networks. This list does not imply an endorsement by REC of these models.
This list shows all transmitters that were certified after 2000 in the FM broadcast band with a power level of 600 watts or less.
