Why choose FM Transmitter?
Transmitting signals over FM is easy. It’s more cost-effective relative to any other wireless technology. Most importantly every car has an FM receiver. After you set it to an FM frequency, you can listen to the music sitting in your car. It is a much easy operation way than using Wifi or Bluetooth. The most important thing is that for the FM transmitter it can be changed working range based on change the output power of it. For the TR502, the working radius can be up to 2KM-3KM.  

For this system you need:

1, An audio source – this can be a laptop or phone
2, An FM transmitter like the Retekess TR502 FM transmitter

The computer or audio source will connect to your FM transmitter which will in turn broadcast over an FM station.

Then how to set up it?

The first thing to do is to set up your Christmas playlist on the computer. Turn down the audio source volume on the computer and on the FM transmitter. It’s better to start at low levels and increase them gradually to test the system. Connect the computer to the FM transmitter with a good quality audio cable.

The next thing we have to do is to set up the FM transmit frequency. The first step is to identify which FM stations are already in use in your area. You don’t want to be transmitting on these frequencies as it will cause RF interference to listeners.
