“A state license? really? for part15? Why? Was that necessary?”
Being Part 15 radio has nothing to do with it … that is, it could be anything. Before I had to quit 5 years ago due to health reasons, I had several other businesses on my UBI (which I’ve had for 16 years).
Any operation like this is basically either a business or a hobby. I want to sell advertising. If you only have content, it’s a hobby, but if you sell product, in this case adverts air time, it’s probably a business.
There’s always a risk. I just have to figure out how to present the most beneficial shape. Right now, it’s more about my community … I could actually ‘live better’ on my limited income if I wasn’t doing this, but then I’ve never been one to always take the ‘safe path’.
If I had, I would never have had the gracious benefits of search and rescue flying, never learned how to surf, never invited strangers to my house who became life-long friends, never struggled learning to play music, never spent time trying to make radio waves, and never fallen in love …
But please note: It’s your business … I’m not telling anyone else how they should do things, yet I will say I believe we all walk the line somewhere between limitations and possibilities. God forbid we have to do it alone.
