I don’t believe any Part 15 station is required to pay BMI fees. Of course if you contact them about it and tell them you are a broadcaster with a radio station, they would love to take your money.
However, you are NOT broadcasters, no matter how bad you want to be. You are MICROcasters. Putting on a legal station with no FCC license required, for your own personal use around your house and in your yard. If your neighbors hear it, so be it.
It’s like me singing in the shower with my bathroom widow open. If the neighbor wants to hear it he can leave his window open, if not, he can close it.
