You wrote: “Now as far as your grounding, using a 6 inch grounding cable to attach to your tower and the rest is RF nature to whereever the signal may go. Any comments on this without any technical explaination?”.
It is just this “RF nature” that caused the FCC to limit the total antenna, transmission line, and ground to 3 meters because they all radiate.
The part 15 rules for AM are written in technical terms. Operation of a transmitter requires at least a basic understanding of technical theory (modulation for example). How do you plan to “tune” your transmitter to 100 mW. without technical understanding? That being said, I will minimize the tech talk here.
FCC type acceptance or certification means the item met their criterion under certain defined test conditions in a laboratory. It is easy to use a certified device and be in violation of the rules.
The choice is yours concerning what risk you are willing to assume by using your own interpretation of ground length. In my previous posts I believe I stated a valid engineering opinion on this. If you mount the Rangemaster on the ground you will not be at risk. If you elevate it you will be at risk.
