We are running the STL software on our two ePMP 1000 radios. The path is 1.3 miles LOS.
20mhz bandwidth on 5190mhz. Monitored signal level is -60DB....just into the green.
We ARE using RTP and tried to stream uncompressed audio at 1.5mbs. S/N is 35DB.
Radios are running at 6DBM...and jitter is making it impossible to use uncompressed
VOIP even with such low bandwidth and one SM... our transmitter end SM radio.
Using MP3 at a reduced 400KBS rate and 600ms buffer delay makes it usable...
but still with occasional drop-outs.
What would be the settings to have the least jitter? Why is the system only demanding 6DBM power
levels resulting in only a 35DB S/N? Would 10mhz bandwidth be better? Would a GPS-locked radio
have less jitter? Anything will help us. Station launch is in a week.
A lot of new Low-power FM stations are going to want to use the ePMP 1000's. I'll pass on the
best settings once we see if this will work.
