TheLegacy, I have just reread your last post, and in it you make a number of statements.
First, you say that the public supports hobby broadcasting. How do you know that. You cannnot go by conversations you have had with others, as you are likely already speaking to the converted. If that statement was to go into a petition, it would have to be somehow substantiated, by some sort of poll or survey, or by weight of evidence (i.e., getting thousands of supportive comments to a facebook post).
You also make a claim that a range of 1 mile would not affect licensed broadcasters. I just do not understand how that could be the case, as complaints against low power pirates and even Part 15 broadcasters generally come from these entities. So they certainly believe that it would affect them. If you are going to make the case in a petition that it will not affect them in reality, you are going to again need some proof as to how that would be the case.
Unfortunately, your opinions (and perhaps those of whom you talk to) by themselves probably would not make any difference to the FCC or licensed broadcasters.
