Lectro SMV "L"

Recommended Posts

I must be missing the obvious - I'm looking at the SMV "L" transmitter, and for the life of me I can't find in any of the manuals what the L represents, or how it differs from a non-L.  Any insights?  Thanks!

I think it's low power for theater applications where the theaters are back to back.

What power would this have been?  The original SMV already would have had 50mW - was there an even lower power option available?

Hi All,

Sorry, but I handed out some bad info. L refers to a range of blocks and was forced on us by the FCC. Each range is considered a different transmitter and requires certification as a different unit. This triples the cost of certification and testing compared to previous times. The government bureaucracy continues to grow year after year. Enough ranting. Here's what Karl had to say:

 

<<Hi Larry,

That refers to the frequency range, in 3-block groups, something to do with the FCC cert.

EL is "extra low" blocks 470, 19, 20

L is "low" blocks 21, 22, 23

M is "mid" blocks 24, 25, 26

-Karl>>

 

In self defense, I wasn't sure so I asked. There are no dumb questions though some do push it. Also, we did  have custom units with dialed down power.

Best Regards,

Larry Fisher

Wow, it seems like there is no limit to government bureaucracy insanity. Sorry to hear about your troubles.
