Crispy Critter with the complete pirate radio setup
A BW150 transmitter. An IO2 USB mixer. A Dell desktop with 15" monitor. An SM57 Shure mic with stand and cable.
That's it. Of course, there's a cable and an antenna (Comet).
Total cost: $3700 with $3000 of that being the BW150 transmitter. That's a pro top of the line pirate TX. You can do it for far less.
Get your asses out there and set up a station. It's not hard and it's not THAT expensive.
