The most powerful circuit we've seen that operates on such low voltage (just two AA cells). A range of 100 meters can be expected and, given a good antenna and FM receiver, 500 meters can be expected. An external power supply can be used up to 9 volts. Tr
The Veronica 1 Watt PLL FM Transmitter is a pretty decent broadcast PLL exciter or transmitter that can be used alone or with an RF power amplifier for high power radio broadcast.
Dick Cappel's page illustrates an extremely basic small FM transmitter that rebroadcasts sounds using a 1.5 Volt battery. very simple circuit.

Very small Hi-Fi Stereo FM Transmitter circuit that uses only 1 chip (BA-1404), and is very easy to construct. Operates from 1.5-3 Volts DC (just 1 or 2 AA batteries).
Harry Lythall shares his v7b FM transmitter circuit design. The transmitter outputs 150-300 milliWatts of RF power in the 88-108 MHz band.
