All of this is some good advise as I have never managed a project as big as this. The only thing I had to go by was some other projects dealing with other things. The only thing I can say for the showing the FCC that such a petition if passed could actually help them rid the need for a Pirate would be to somehow use New Zealand and the guard bands. But this would have to once again be shown in graphs so that the FCC could get a better understanding of what could happen. Maybe before the petition would have to be public and government education of part 15 and what it is. If this antenna does work as good as I think it will for AM we could get some of the Pirates who want to gain more power on FM to try the 100 mW antenna with Station8’s magic antenna/atu (its really not magic but just proving a point). Heck I must admit I would like to see it in action at my place. If there is a way to get more range following the rules tan gray areas would that be a possible shock? That could even open a can of warms as to where I may want to educate would be Pirates who really don’t want 20+ miles. Some want 3-4. One was talking about a 15 watt FM TX to go only that far and If I could prove it works on 100 mW AM the initiative has done some good for all. I know AM won’t work in all areas but it would show an educational willingness from the project I never thought of so much as now. Sometimes Pirates themselves do things because of the stereotype belief that 100mW on AM won’t do anything. Just a thought.
I’m looking for group participation as project managers, librarians, a whole complete movement. Hopefully as big as Prometheus. There has got to be a way to construct such an organization.
