There has been lots of talk about this on several of the broadcast forums
too (such as Christian Radio Tech "CR-TECH"). Most are looking for ways to
meet Part 15 requirements, such as running into "leaky" coax with a dummy
As far as supply, there might be some engineers in the CR-Tech forum that
can help source equipment from Christian broadcasters. You can find them at
http://crtech.org/ or at groups.io.

None of the radio stations that I'm engineering for currently have any
spare transmitters, And anything we'd have would be a bit on the hefty side
with no way to practically ship them very far.
