I wasn’t calling you a tool. I actually meant to type troll referring to the ones who were reading this forum only to try and narc on others. I have no issues with some of what you say as harmonics are an issue with some of the more inferior transmitters sold on the market. But the ones with the FCC ID# on them and certified also have the higher power settings on them. Some know of it and some don’t. What I’m also trying to say is that the clean transmitters that are out there are plentiful and yet in other countries the sky has not fallen. I’m sure that there are Hams out there who rather part 15 or Micro broadcasting not to exist. There are always those who abuse any service even Ham Radio’s. When I was using speech to text on my droid I said Troll and it came out Tool. Not good I see where some may think I’m calling others a tool. But the only tool was the one on that other site who accused MrBruce of being a Pirate and I guess if their reading this only to try and snag people on this forum than they would be the tool lol. But believe me I wasn’t trying to flame on you in no way. I may have a difference in opinion on some things but a lot of what you say does have reason for concern.
What I’m also trying to say is Yes back then CB was the cool thing to have. One reason in the 70s Cell Phones were very expensive and Unlimited Long Distance was a pipe dream. Some people went far and beyond and ran 5K linear amps creating all sorts of interference to Radio, TV, and God knows what. I remember CBers interfering with our family church’s PA system back in the day because some were comming right in on the amp. Sort of like an IF. So again it could be a concern. But after all again the status quo for the young is not having a transmitter and what I’m saying is that by making a media stink about it will only popularize it just like when CB’s were talked about in a bad way. Others said “Hey a CB Great Idea a 5,000-10,000 Linear Great gotta have one. So media can be good or bad. I don’t know if FM will ever become a waste land probably the corporations are doing a good enough job of that with any help for anyone else. Radio going Digital? Could happen just like TV did but again I dont think a few micro broadcasters would have caused that.
Yes I’m big into a little more power on FM and very opionated about it, but really I didn’t mean for the word tool to come out and it could not have came out at the worst time when I used speech to text. I may have to watch the words that Google comes up with on my Galaxy Note 2.
Best Regards no real hurt feelings.
