My comments follow along the lines Mojoe has given to the FCC, except since they came over to the actual location I was able to show them schematics of the installation drawn into CAD program printed and in the folder along with the SStran transmitter documents, the audio chain component list, antenna specs (coil, antenna info along with similar coil/antenna info from Hams, rf antenna engineering text, etc.)
It has a schematic of the radials along with the wire gauges, height of the antenna, grounding, etc., the installation down to the screw and nut, along with the frequency of broadcast, logs, and radius of coverage (estimated based on driving tests) and listeners to the station that have called in.
There is a schematic of the various components and cable runs (not that the FCC needs this) but it gives them an indication you are serious about what you are doing and not just transmitting via a ‘pirate’ operation.
As Neil states above you ONLY need to show compliance to the Part 15.219 and it’s emissions but this is only part of what you need to show the FCC if they decide to show up at your door. It’s best to be prudent and not hide anything.
Best is document everything about your station as best as you can regarding the Part 15 rules then be ready to show them everything to the best of your knowledge that you are in compliance let them determine if you are or not.
I’ve yet to have any problems for almost 3 years that I’ve been on the air constantly.
