An example translator callsign is: K220HT
What we know is that the “K” stands for “west of the Mississippi”.
The “220” means “FM channel No. 220”.
My question is, what do the last two letters mean?
Void in the Rules
So, if an FCC person says, “It’s not doing any harm don’t worry about it”, does that stand up if a different FCC person comes along and tells you “There’s no way you can do that” (?)
But everybody likes classic rock, which amounts to community approval.
You can’t uncut a ribbon.
Everyone is Impressed
Mark remembers “…high on the list is a song called Beverly which I wrote”
You wrote “Beverly?” That is amazing, Mark. What other songs have you written?
Connection with girls is probably a common source of wistful songs from the past.
Perez Prado’s “Patricia”, Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline”, The Beatle’s “Michelle” are…[Read more]
Emotional Connections with the Past
The author of the linked article nicely describes the deep nostalgia triggered by certain songs.
I’ve got a project in the works that explores the same territory, a radio program called “The Sad Music Hour”, which might run two or three episodes.
If everyone’s sentimental songs were included there could be…[Read more]

Points Missed and Made
As to Rich… “unless they want to drive through a barrier blocking their first-chosen path.”
In the dystopian world to come ALL chosen paths can be blocked by highway checkpoints.
More important, I believe that the solution to our mess is to recognize that the internet is logically and must be finally defined as a common…[Read more]

And the highway department has the right to edit your travel plans.
So far I’m not smart enough to know whether MaraDNS would provide a benefit for my setup, but I plan to investigate the idea.
My dynamic IP address is working as if it were static because of a free service from No-IP (noip.com) which detects IP address changes and compensates, using a free domain name they supply.
On top of this we have a…[Read more]
“National Commission on Military, National & Public Service”, another perfect program for U.S. listeners this holiday week, also recorded by Dale Lehman of WZRD in Chicago.
Radio8Z recollects: “My first Part15 station was built when I was in high school, etc.”
My first tube kit was already on the air when I was in grade school, estimated 1630 kHz which some radios could just barely hear in the days when 1600 was the top of the dial.
Some guy on another forum actually said, “I can do without the musing,”…[Read more]
“Welcome Home Rally for Survivors of Chicago Police Torture” 2-hours, Recorded by Dale Lehman of WZRD. Most riveting program of the year.
Tim’s FM Tests
I printed copies of all Tim’s FM tests for my engineering files, they are extremely helpful.
In fact I immediately purchased an EDM Mono FM Transmitter based on Tim’s test even though he disclosed it is NOT certified. But it is well priced and extremely good quality.
Therefore when I use it the responsibility is all mine.
Ever listen to Dan Ingram?
I was super lucky because he worked years in my hometown on WIL AM 1430 before heading to WABC AM 770 New York.
Comcast Reports Major Outage
But as Artisan Radio points out, not everyone understands the situation.
A good set of rules would follow a consistent pattern of writing, so we can reasonably guess that entirely different people wrote the inconsistent AM FM sections of Part 15.
The portion about AM transmitters takes into account that home hobbyists might not be…[Read more]
Mark’s view on why there aren’t more News Talk stations: “Well for one reason they can’t be automated, or at least I can’t see how, and you have to have lots more equipment, much more $$ and tech know how, and be attending it all the time. You have to be a good talker and not stumble over your words or run out of things to say and have dead air…[Read more]
Artisan Radio recalls: “I am aware of one (a radio blog) by RichPowers (or End80 Radio)”
Yes, Rich Powers had/has a tremendous blog and we have been wondering where he is?
Powers owns a sailing vessel so perhaps he’s off at sea somewhere and may return any day.
By far Rich Powers is one of the most talented creative people in low power life.
Low power radio is made to order for news talk programming, so why aren’t there a few news talk stations on this forum?
As the lone such station, KDX Worldround Radio has been on the air since 2007 with a continuing flow of news talk and a tad of classical.
More time is spent on programming decisions than on technical matters, always trying to…[Read more]
