BMI’s official responce is:
The $ 200.00 license fee for Part 15 stations is by far the lowest fee
that we charge any broadcast stations. The annual LPFM fee is actually
$ 262.00, not $ 239.00. You are correct that LPFMs are of a higher
wattage; however they are unable to sell commercials. Some of the
hobbyists or broadcasters that run Part 15s are actually selling spots
so that played a role in the fee that we set for the category.
LPFMs can’t sell commercials? I thought they could get ‘underwriters’?
