My post was just a question, and that’s it. I have always thought Part 15 operators should band together much like the NAB or the ARRL. I wasn’t asking for money, nor would I. Looks like my post got out of hand and misread, or maybe I miscommunicated my intent, or something else, I don’t know, but it seems that it got blown into this current hate that I rather not be in.
I love Broadcasting. That’s why I’m employed in Television. And I love the fact I can start a tiny radio station in my own backyard that’s fully legal. I don’t want the NAB to step in and say that my tiny station is doing harm to a 100,000 watt megastation as this report states, and take that away. There is no way I could, the 100,000 watt station would kill my .01 watt FM station anyway in a urban area. Those in rural areas or small towns, there is more of a chance of interference. I’m not calling the people at NAB mean or nasty, afterall they look out for the broadcaster. They do make a point though about dropping the “F” bomb over Part 15 that is valid.
If you can come up with a organization that would be something like NAB, then more power to you, and I would support said group. Then I would be “game”.
And for my “whatever” comment, I just couldn’t believe a question I would pose would get out of hand, I get blasted for it, then that person turns around and start a new subject on it. I did call you on it, and received the post that I replied to with the “Whatever” statement. It could and should have been handled in a different and more positive way by both of us. That’s working together, this is not.
As for me, I’m done talking now because I’m tired of being blocked by someone or belittled by people or whatever. I would like to spend my time doing something positive in my community, then sit on some stupid computer going around and around. In other words, I’m dropping the subject.
