Here I go again:
1. On getting something passed without NAB or RIAA finding out:
a. No way by normal FCC procedures. There has to be a notice and public comment period.
b. Maybe by public law, by having a sympathetic US Senator or Representative tack a provision onto a huge and unrelated bill that no one will want to vote against and the president won’t want to veto. However, given the influence of NAB, RIAA, and the like, I wouldn’t count on this.
2. The FCC is probably not going to expand Part 15 much beyond what it is now. The potential for interference gets too high, which is why anything substantial must be licensed for coordination. In particular:
a. 15.2171: Nothing and nobody are going to run 10 kilowatts (10,000 watts) without a license. Period.
b. 15.2191/2193/2194: 1/4 wave at the frequencies concerned is huge. Do the arithmetic.
c. 15.2194/2195: No way can you operate on 1800 kHz. This is the low end of the 160-meter ham band.
d. Good receivers can generally pick up tenths-of-microvolt signal strength levels. On 13,560 kHz you can emit 15,848 uV/m (measured at 30 meters; this is 15.848 mV/m). Volts/meter signal strengths are enormous, and may even be classified as hazardous. Even 50 mV/m is high.
