I am not an attorney, but I don’t believe BMI would have a legal leg to stand on attemting to collect fees. Especially since you have a x-mitter “for your own personal hobby use” to hear your music around the house. Also, you are not supposed to broadcast any Call Letters on your Part 15 personal use stations (although you may broadcast a slogan). Therfore you are not a Broadcast station. Is BMI going to say because you play AC/DC loud on your home stereo system and your neighbor hears it as well, that you now owe BMI a fee? They could try, but legally I don’t think it would fly.
