As you know, I have been very concerned about this issue since it first surfaced. In fact, I have signed my station off the air in the interim while trying to decide what to do. I own several certified transmitters, including the Talking House and the Rangemaster. These are high quality products; they are very well designed and manufactured. When the transmitters were on the air, they were operated in full compliance with the manufacturers’ instructions and the Part 15 rules as they currently exist.
I discussed this issue with my partners, and we have come to the conclusion that the risk is acceptable. If the FCC were to decide to change the Part 15 rules such that previously certified devices were negatively impacted, it would have to revoke those certifications. This would affect thousands of users in the Real Estate industry alone. It is not plausible that they could issue a NAL to a user of a certified device without due process. In the unlikely case that we were fined, we would most certainly appeal the fine. In the meantime we have set aside a contingency fund in case it is needed.
We plan to put our station back on the air as soon as the program schedule can be regenerated. We can’t let a few closed minded individuals put an end to low power radio– it is too important.
I appreciate your support!
