Hitting the nail right on the head is the description of the consumer as innovator rather than the broadcaster. It seems that’s the exact position I’ve taken with my effort to promote personal radio stations where the listener does his/her own programming using Part 15 transmitters, precisely because the broadcasters have failed to provide desirable program delivery.
If the AM and FM bands were discontinued, which is one idea mentioned in this thread, Part 15 would be operating on old legacy equipment and perhaps illegally. Trouble is the low power broadcasters have zero political influence in the big decisions.
Fixing the problem on the professional side, with intelligent spectrum allocation and rehabilitation of the radio industry, seems like a task for activists, but completely beyond the means of a group of sincere low power enthusiasts.
This discussion still lacks a solution clad bottom line, in my opinion.
