The object is to convince the NAB that it is in their best interest to petition the FCC for better made Radio receiver enforcement. The quality of reception of their licensed FM signal can only be as good as the receiver. And if everyone has better receivers the ones who use part 15 FM transmitters will not need as much power. Not needing as much power helps to solve the interference issue. If you can receive ¼ mile on a 250 uVm signal to a good Radio the use to be higher power micro broadcasting stations will see less need to push the signal so hard. So as we push for more field strength we also can give the NAB a bone they can use and that is to petition the FCC to stop these junk receivers from entering store shelves. With technology the way it is now it is cheaper to make a high quality Radio now days. I do remember back in 1979 a cheap transistor Radio in which I could receive WRIF 101.1 FM in Lansing , Michigan where as on my Home stereo’s (High End) had barely received the signal. But on that little transistor Radio I could be walking around outside and listening to WRIF. I was amazed. So it can be done I’ve seen it at a cheap price.
