RE: Reply #31 above: … Foliage effects FM but not as much as UHF. I do remember 800 Mhz was really effected by foliage. At part 15 FM it too is possible. …
Just curious, how many operators of unlicensed systems using the FM broadcast band have such foliage present within 3 meters of their transmit antennas, where the FCC references most of the non-compliant fields shown in their FM NOUOs? Close to zero, probably.
And even if such foliage/attenuation was present, that would aid their case before the FCC, not degrade it.
RE: Reply #25 above: … Mr Rich is not a part 15 station hobbyist, yet he hovers around commenting negatively about what actual hobbyists do.
I do not comment “negatively,” but based on science. Science that has not been disproven, and apparently that has not been well understood, by some.
