and the next bit : I just talked to my local FCC guy out of Livermore, CA. I told him what I was doing, why I was doing it, etc.
He asked what my intent was – I said I was providing programming to the local community, who had no local radio, and that I would turn over the station to the authorities during time of disaster/emergency.
He suggested I contact a local community org who had recieved a CP and never used it for LPFM. How cool is that? He seemed happy that I wanted to give him all my info so “if someone complained, he could call me instead of going on a witchhunt”.
VERY nice guy.
I get a little tired of people claiming the FCC are inherently evil. Show me ANY group that is perfectly amiable all the time, I’ll show you a graveyard. These guys are really just trying to do a job, are under budgeted, and appreciate when people try to make thier lives easier.
As a side note – theres two fcc agents that live in my town. I have been running legal for a year now, and not had anyone knocking on my door (so I must be doing it legally 😉 )
