Those radio pranks were very entertaining, but at the receiving end it could scare the target, I guess that involving people in a skit without their awareness is not a good idea.
Also, after thinking about what I said… calling part 15 stations “broadcasters” might have been a stretch.
The word “broad” refers to far and wide, whereas we reach a “slim and narrow” area.
Part 15 stations are slimcasters.
No section of the FCC rules apply to slimcasters, except the Part 15 section itself.
