The ground wire issue apparently is an important one. The one church got cited for it and all. Apparently in this case it wasn’t the problem, but a transmitter that was out of compliance was.
I’ll agree, it does get to being a tiresome discussion to have over and over, but if someone trying to be legit part15 got cited for it recently, then I’d say it counts as pertinent and current. I admit though, some days it seems like you could ask opinions of whether a grey, black or plain metal case for your transmitter would look cooler, and *somehow* several posts about the groundwire would sneak in there. LOL
It’s not like 15.219(b) is all there is to compliance, either. Like I don’t recall seeing many mentions of how anyone measures the input to the final RF amplifier to make sure they’re legit on the 100 mw limit, or different ways to check modulation to avoid overmodulation causing “spattering”, and etc.
I have to agree though that it seems kind of ludicrous when commercial licensees are worried about losing listeners to oprations as small as part15 stations.
