there always will be the ones who are careless even those Rich stations have caused Interference as well. The Licensed stations want MORE POWER just the same. Why do you think some big AM stations back in the day always wanted more power. If Radio was serving the piblic than it would not be the way it is. Now speaking of LIFE SAVING!!! Yesterday we had severe weather heading our way. NOT ONE RADIO station mentioned A tornado WARNING for our county!!!!! Not one BUT ME!!!!! Yes I had the WTKR channel 3 app and my phone went off. I Stopped my broadcast to alert folks that Severe weather was on the way and to listen to local TV Ch 3 or local Radio. I went off the air and turn into the TV and heard about it. But not one station I tuned to until 25 minutes later even mentioned the possible Tornado and worse yet when the warning was issued still no announcement from Radio. So if my station was to have been able to be heard through the town I’d have saved a life. Its not about just interference its about the rich greedy NAB wanting no competition and just like AT&T and Bell were broke up so too should these rich folks who too don’t care about lives otherwise you would hve heard about the warning on Radio as well as the smartphone and TV. So around here if you depend on your Radio to warn you, you had better think again because you’ll have the tornado come and go and probably knock down your house before anyone will tell you. Why? Because they got to get those ads in and those chart topping tunes played. Now that is a good case for VLPFM! I’m not just gonna take that and walk away with my tail between my crotch. These guys at the FCC think all commercial broadcasters care about lives??? Well that my friends is one huge example of yet more lies from the peanut galary. Now Hams would have warned long before hand or a weather Radio. But don’t depend on FM to warn you in bad weather its another thing most folks have believed.
Now I hope any troll who is against micro broadcasting and wants to end it reads this and rethinks their kill hobby Radio speach to the FCC!!!!!
