Low Power Broadcasting with Carrier Current

Carrier Current Broadcasting injects an AM radio signal into a building or neighborhood electrical system. This strategy allow a low power, unlicensed station to broadcast to receivers near the electrical wires carrying the AM broadcasting signal. This can be a simple and relatively inexpensive means to start a radio station where the broadcaster has access to the electrical distribution system. Special equipment is used to connect an AM transmitter into the electrical system for broadcasting.
