i have a show on a much bigger FM station (250w) and i know there are all kinds of insane penalties, like $7000 for saying f*** on the air. since FCC licensing isn’t needed, i didn’t know how much influence the FCC even had on part 15ers. but i guess you can inherently get away with more, since less people listening = less people that can file a complaint.
i’m new to part 15 radio, so i really don’t know all the specifics yet. is there also a required number of times (per hour) that a station must identify themselves? i’ve read that you’re not supposed to make up your own call letters, but is it ok to make a name? (ie, “The Fox”, etc.)
i might as well tack on another newbie question, while i’m on a roll. i’m thinking of starting my station using an AMT3000 with no external antenna. i know it’s hard to guess how setups will work, but is it necessary to have an external antenna to reach distances of 1+ miles? my goal is to transmit solidly to a whole college campus, which is about a 1/2 mile by 1/2 mile square.
