I posted a similar survey request some time ago and there were no responses by anyone being visited. My intent was to dispell the rumors that the FCC targets Part 15 broadcasters.
Yes, Pirates as they are called running outrageous power levels show up on the FCC offenders page. And yes, there may be a few legal Part 15 stations that were visited because someone thought they were illegal even when there was no interference caused. None have been reported here recently.
Find a clear spot on the dial with no adjacent local stations. Follow the appropriate Part 15 rules. Don’t broadcast offensive material. You should be OK. Remember, even if you are 100% legal technically, you can be shut down if your station causes interference to a licensed service. That doesn’t mean you will be arrested or fined, just required to stop transmitting until the problem can be corrected.
Call an FCC Field office and talk to them about your intent. I would hope they will take a few minutes to listen to your concerns and answer your questions.
