HB was the original ones who started a petition for increased AM. It was me who piped in and said “If AM can go a Mile why not FM?” and that was how I started to try and petition FM. At first I did say maybe 1 Watt, but then I desided to try and keep in under 1 Watt on FM just under it because 500 mW would bleed a boombox and I didn’t want to bleed for 20 or more feet. So I said something like 500mW to 700mW but under a Watt might be better and to keep it on a Rubber Duck or inside antenna this again was to try and keep issues from happening.
Later it was desided to go by field strength and because Canada has 1,000 uV/M @ 3 meters we’d try for that maybe a little more. The object was to get that mile in Range in Stereo to a Digital Boom Box with good quality Aka Sony CFD S550 or CFD S50. Math was also used to try and figure the strength so we’re not shooting off numbers and looking retarded to the FCC.
