MICRO1700 made a convincing case for 50kW stations with the WWL story. But I think there are some 50kW stations that do not provide the public news and weather reports but have cheap junk-food programming with no staff. Perhaps the way to solve the situation is to require 50kW stations to maintain a vigil using real on-duty reporters serving the public.
Radio manufacturers and sellers need a mention, like C.Crane and Universal, for providing reliable battery operated receivers. The problem starts when there’s nothing to receive.
Using spectrum to relay children’s 3D movies to cellphones is (I hope) a venture doomed to fail. People are not going to sit and watch a 2″X 2″ screen for the length of a movie.
May the highest bidder be the biggest loser.
