Having read your blog post, thoght I would just say that I have been on the air with low power stations on and off since 1991 and have never had any problems.
I’m not worried about station engineers – because they are all contract engineers and we already know each other.
My station uses a Rangemaster. My ground system and cables need some tweaking and tightening as we have had recent storms (again) but I have also begin streaming my station most of the time.
While I will continue running the Part 15 station, its range really doesn’t help our overall station that much, since it mostly is covering pastures! We like just being able to listen without having to listen via the web stream all the time.
Between homeschooling two stepgrandsons and finding that I’m going to have to resurrect my previous direct-mail marketing business, I’m not going to have a lot of time to tinker with the Part 15 station.
Our mobile home has severe water damage, and our insurance carrier has cancelled us. So we may be looking at trying to build a prefab house, while living at the poverty level.
But..the station stayed on through the storms!
