Ultimately the FM Initiative will be in the hands of those in the leadership of the FM Initiative Project, which I think includes TheLegacy, MrBruce and various others.
My role is one who is supportive in principle because I think Part 15 users deserve a better slice of FM than is currently allowed.
My own usage of AM & FM is very confined to a limited area and I have no personal interest in “serving neighbors” with radio they aren’t looking for, but I can understanding wanting to have some reach for many who want to share music and ideas.
I appreciate thoughts and suggestions from Mark and others about how the Initiative can best be written and presented, and agree with the commercial uses mentioned, i.e., real estate, yard sales, auto parking lots, a lot of such uses.
I can’t agree with arbitrarilly disposing of free speech in the belief that will somehow appease the FCC. None of us that I know of want hate speech or inappropriate content, but commenting on politics or pimping a religion is an American right, as objectionable as some of it can be. I’m not sure why Canada is so tight-sphinctered about certain speech on small radio stations.
Keep generating the ideas, they will be useful to the Initiative guys.
