In my opinion the only way to get the FCC to listen about increasing FM signal strength is to try to write a well written document on the reason for the need of a different classification such as Canada has for “announcements” such as selling houses, garage sales, getting a radio signal to a parking lot advertising a store sale, businesses getting a signal to a local neighbourhood, drive-in movies etc. and why FM is needed rather than AM. State some of the drawbacks of AM. It can be suggested that the highest frequency for this is not past 100 mhz if you are within a mile of an airport and only a certified transmitter can be used, and certification means tested for no harmonics and spurs.
And you can’t have anything political, religous, pusuing an agenda, swearing racizm etc.
Other than that, no program restrictions.
Maybe you can mention that if there was a little relaxing of the rule and Canada’s signal strength were allowed there there would be much more compliance and less pirating.
But how you construct the document is just as important as what you want…has to be worded right.
I started by saying getting the FCC to listen…..may not get them to change anything though. But the saying goes….better to try and be regected then never try at all.
An election is coming next year but in the US don’t they campain a whole year? Approch your congress people running and present this to them…..they listen to people at election time.
