Okay post number two.
I hear all talk about support for rule change. A rule change that allows people like us to operate an FM transmitter or AM transmitter with a new field strength.
A field strength that allows your station to reach a potentially larger listening audience.
I seen mentions of a supporting agency, but no mention of it’s name. Perhaps, there is a reason that agency is not mentioned out in the open in this forum board. Such as possible TROLLS from Boobybroadcaster.
Okay, I’m game.
I’m all for rule change. But look at the examples of the NAACP.
Although progress is slow within the NAACP, their strength in numbers and their being a nationally known agency is what gets their words heard and acted upon.
I hear talk about the ALPB, but how well known is the ALPB to be nationally known well enough to be recognized as a supporter of rule change?
My intension’s are not to insult anyone here, but unless the ALPB is nationally known by the right agencies, it’s word will have no voice where it counts.
Please look at the NAB for example, why do you think broadcasters pay fees to them? It’s because they are the radio and televisions station’s back bones. When the NAB talks, the FCC and Congress listens.
In order to get the rule change you’re asking for, you’d need the same type of support the NAB gives broadcasters. Now, where is an agency like that for us? Tell me and I’ll send them a payment instead of buying $600.00 worth of records each month. But it can’t be an agency that turns out to be a go nowhere scam.
There is talk about lawyers who know broadcast laws, but where are they?
Sorry I am not trying to discredit anyone here or mock your attempts to get what we all know we want. I am simply asking where is this support?
You get a lawyer, you get a nationally recognized agency going in support of rule change and I’ll be the first to support it financially.
I am not sure if my mentioning Radio Spark here http://radiospark.org/rfree is anything you were quietly referring to, but I am member there and used them when I attempted to get a LPFM CP back in November of 2014. This agency is very helpful in getting support and even lawyers who support future LPFM stations. They do have many success stories.
We could ask them about part 15 broadcast radio support, but then it is up to them to say okay that sounds possible, I am sure we can work something out to support that type of service. But, as I said before, strength is in numbers, the more people who approach them with such a request, the more viable it sounds and may get positive results.
BUT! And I do mean BUT! If I am the only one who asks, then those who listen to me will say, you’re the only one out of 300,000 possible people who are asking for this and we just do not see a big enough interest for your ideas to be feasible enough for consideration.
Get a charter, get a support group such as the NAB or Radio Spark group and I’ll support it 100%
