    Default FM Transmitter knocking out Wi-Fi

    So testing tonight I realized that my FM Transmitter is knocking out the Wi-Fi to my Kulp K8-PB. I do have it pretty much right next to the controller and was wondering how far away do you think I would need to move it to stop the interference? Is it a distance thing or a height thing? Both controllers are on my front deck in separate boxes next to each other. Would moving the transmitter 6' away on the same deck level work or should I elevate it above the controller box somehow?

    Either way I'll need to order a longer audio cable to reach. I'm not totally worried as I believe the Kulp will keep time on it's own without Wi-Fi so my schedule should still run at the time's I want but figured I'd ask.

    Nevermind all, I slide it down as far away as my current audio cable would reach and no more issues... phew!!
    First year jitters causing many little panic moments hah.

    Moving the antenna away is all that is needed


    2021 New Tune-to sign. New 40x27 matrix at the house. Retiring the Strip based matrix. Updating some of the old window frames to the new house. Adding two new songs.
    2020 Full sized show reworked for the new location. Only adding (famous last words) 13 RBLs that I finally got converted to using pixels
    2019 - Just moved into a new home (yet another change of plans). Will be dim but not dark. Too much to do at the new place to leave time for a show. Dim show (3000 pixels) had regular visits most nights.
