Scwis, Your points are well taken, but I wasn’t really meaning to elaborate, or indicate that I had personal concern about the legality of my signal going farther than 200ft. That’s not what I think, though I realize that is what it sounded like..
My concern is on how to respond if and when a local resident finds that statement on the FCC website, and points it out, potentially seeding doubts in the local community about the valid legality of my station.
The reason I worried about it is due to the fact that my goal is do this commercially, and if legality rumors start flying around, it would certainly cause advertisers to feel less secure about supporting the station.
This is a small island with heavy tourist traffic, and I feel secure that a commercial Part15 can work here..
But it also involves local trust.
If I cant answer the 200ft thing (should it arise), and effectively dismiss it, it could hurt things.
So then, if need be, how do you eliminate the 200ft elephant in the room for the average Joe?
