I started another Part 15 station project. New transmitter. Not entirely new ideas but I think I will make this station portable. Not sure yet. I won’t call it something different. Same website as last time.
A year passed from the prior one concluding and I missed it. Also updated my ham license to General and it made me think about it all again. Radio is a nice hobby.
Btw, I glad to see the part15.us website on WordPress. Looks nice. Seems to function well.August 4, 2019 at 9:04 am #112553BrooceParticipant

New transmitters are always fun. For me it doesn’t matter what it is. A one transistor transmitter sitting on the floor of the kitchen is as much fun as my SS-Tran, or a big ham transmitter. (Yeah – I’ve got a ham license.). It’s the same with receivers. Of course a portable AM Part 15 station would be a cool challenge. There was a guy who once had a Part 15 AM in his truck. I don’t think that guy is around anymore – but he would park his truck at a local park (??) — put down radials, put up the antenna — and transmit all day Saturday with pre-recorded programng. The programing (sp? yeah I can’t spell) was made in his studio. How cool is that??? Man! I wish we had a Part 15 station like that in our town! I’m on the fly so excuse misprints.

if I could see to drive I would try and put up a part 15 transmitter in a van next to the water probably go to the bay and transmit with the ground lead going into the water.
What I could also do is certain days transmit in one location and certain days transmitted into another but in the same town. This way everyone would have a chance to hear the station over the air. It might work.
