Well, the point of the original post was to dispell the rumor that the FCC regularly harasses Part 15 AM stations. Either no one is going to fess up about being visited, or it just rarely happens. I suppose for those that worry about it, they must be doin’ something to worry about.
I still feel that for the majority of the visits, interference is not the problem as most stories end with ” the FCC saw my certified transmitter and left without shutting me down.”
If they visited because of an interference complaint it wouldn’t matter if you were legal or not. You would be shut down, 15.5…
So apparently in those cases, someone heard a station and didn’t like it for one reason or another and wanted it shut down when there was no interference. Of course, broadcast obscene or indecent material or run outrageous power and you’ve got problems regardless. Otherwise, if your lean and clean, the FCC has better things to do.
