I doubt that using "rechargeable" batteries instead of alkaline batteries would cause a problem. Transmitters are designed to operate over a range of voltages. Most "dry" transmitters--those that use alkaline batteries--also have after market rechargeable battery packs available to those who wish to use them.
Remember the voltage of "new" alkaline batteries is 1.5 volts. The voltage drops with use. Several of my radios come off my chargers with battery voltages of over 11 volts but quickly drop to 9.6 as I use the transmitter.
The moral of my story is the transmitter doesn't care what kind of batteries you use so long as the voltage is within the design parameters of the unit.
