Makes me wonder if some of these sites are informents (Trap Sites) for Radio Broadcasters who want no more than to stop all micro broadcasting. I’ll make a MENTAL note to stay clear of hobby broadcaster.com or if I do visit that site i’ll use a VPN (BT Guard, Cyberghost) to be sure they don’t snag my ip address and start to accuse me of some stuff like this. Its why I wonder if I already done the wrong thing by regestering on any Radio forum. One tries to play nice and some idiot gets jealous of you. If Joe Bob runs a transmitter and he gets out a few football fields and he’s causing your station to lose listeners within the few football fields of signal your doing something wrong and you really don’t care what the listeners want to hear. YOUR station should be shut down. What happened to the days where Radio played something other than Rap, Top40, maybe top 100 at best? Hell Rock (Classic Rock, Progressive Rock) needs to be preserved. I have a friend in Indiana who told me that there is no oldies station where he lives. What??? So maybe the music industry needs to encourage micro broadcasters not work so hard to kill them off.
Internet Radio is going to kill off music on regular Radio anyway its just a matter of time. And the only music you can hope to hear on FM is from a micro broadcaster.
I remember playing with FM Transmitters since I was a kid. Some went far more than 150 feet and no one bitched about it. In fact many older folks got a kick out of me running a micro broadcast station even though they didn’t know what Album Rock was. I got my cab driver who drove me home from school to listen and she thought it was cute I bought the transmitter and ran it. They can’t stop it it this is a great educational hobby and it is the way it is. Old folks 60+ are starting to buy these things and run them. Just watch youtube. In West Verginia there is a station on FM I know goes way more than 1/4 mile no call letters and this guy is got to be over 70 years old. I got a kick out of listening to him.
In short there is strength in numbers. We should fight hard to do what we do and shut the crying bullyboys down for good. We don’t need another Rap station or another wanna be station playing records of someone scratching a turntable back and forth. We want real music on the dial not this polution. What we need is a micro broadcasting party where 100’s and thousands of real people every 1/4 mile apart run these transmitters on unused frequencies and give the ball babies a run for their money. I’m not saying to run a 100 watt station like the guy in West Virginia, but for God’s sake we need to be on one side and not fight amungst each other turning each other in because you think they are a pirate. It reminds me of the Commodore 64 high school days where one computer club faught against the other. so too looks like FM Radio is gonna be the same way. And now they get the Ham Radio operators involved in tracking down a flea powered station down (Fox Hunt). What a joke these low life folks are. I bet they pay these folks off with that Kenwood or Drake rig they otherwise can’t afford because the wife thinks rent and food on the table or maybe knick knacks are more important. So track down a little FM Transmitter and billion dollar Radio station company will buy it for you. Can’t have any fun without someone yelling about it. Time fore a revolution and this is why some folks at the FCC may not want to go after a low power micro broadcaster unless they cause interference. And not that these transmitters are more well known they got a fight they won’t win. It only encourages more micro broadcasters becasue the more its talked about the more copycats will do the same. So if your a Radio Station hunting for more possible operators to shut down I have this to say. Kill one and a 100 more will rise. As John Lennon sang “Power To The People”.
