LPB Leaky Coax AM-FM transmitter

The second design is a more flexible design which allows for LPB Leaky Coax cable runs in very tight environments like within walls and ceilings. The first design has a solid shield which allows the cable to be suspended over large lengths without affecting performace. These allow for a very controlled transmission area and work in the 88 - 108 Mhz range. We have also added a new LPB FM transmitter to power these leaky cable systems.
