The preceeding is posed as an “either/or” choice, and I think either one of those might explain the over-powered FM transmitters available for sale.
We don’t know how massive the problem really is from a blissful public buying those transmitters everyday and broadcasting without thought of checking the rules.
A news reporter might try to get the sales numbers from ebay or the sellers and check out the buyers to see what they’re doing.
Giving 1-Watt for hobbyists wouldn’t solve anything because the demand is greater than the supply for room on the FM band and there is no satisfactory solution.
Why can’t we all just get along with AM?
