Agreement All Around
I now understand what you are saying Mr. parts and do agree with your attorney’s advice.
It brings to light the possible risk being taken by some of our part 15 stations that use 4-letter FCC “like” combinations.
Thinking back, I recall several times thinking that because a certain set of call letters were not currently in…[Read more]

Mr. parts said this: “While using an ID in the format of a licensed station has a certain cachet…”
Read it again.
It says we CANNOT use a call sign that could be confused with a licensed station.
Be that as it may, the name “CDL” is perfectly fine.

Truth VS. the Law
Everything said by Mark, Tim and everybody is absolutely true, being very literal and practical about what the FM rule says and the laws of physics dictate, but there’s something further that we don’t know because we haven’t attended law school.
For years I dated a remarkable woman who did attend law school and told me…[Read more]

Anticipating the Public Perception
Informing the public about the legality of what is being done at the Deconstruction Lab certainly can’t hurt and likely will help allay any doubts or misconceptions.
In paragraph six you have a typographic error: “Call signs are not issues to Part 15 broadcasters”.
It will interest you to know this FCC…[Read more]
Big thank you to TheLegacy for fixing my Elite status at TheInitiative website!
I was over there this morning catching up on the interesting business going on among people who really care about radio and decency.
We are professional radio exucatives.

That’s right, Zero deciBels is “standard level”, setting the loudest point of reference.
Anything in the (+) plus range, i.e., +10 dB, is above standard level and probably “over modulating”, and anything below 0 dB is less then or below the top reference level, i.e., -7 dB.
I also have never used “shuffle” since I do not…[Read more]
What the hell? Carl’s chimes(!?)
Uh, I was thinking of the expression “chiming in” and that explains it. I’m chiming in.
Having not talked about the modulation characteristics of the Cuthbert, I’ve just had a modulation experience with my AMT5000 from now defunct SSTran.
Oh, I’ve been messing with streaming radio,…[Read more]
The Best Treatment
Thank you TheLegacy for tending to my demands in your graceful way.
I’m not usually a person who makes demands and complaints, but lately I’ve been trying to find my own personality.
I’m on night duty tonight on KDX so tomorrow I’ll check out the Elite password and everything.

Mark thinks: “…the SStran … wasn’t certified, sold in a kit and only the manufacturer’s word that it was compliant…”
The SSTran AMT3000 was not easy to verify regarding the 100mW but the AMT5000 was exceptionally easy to adjust for exactly 100mW.
The AMT5000 has Test Points where Voltage and current can…[Read more]
Calling It Quits
Yesterday we spent a good hour fiddling with re-joining TheInitiative website and discovered that our original membership was still active, which I wrote about in this thread and was able to peruse the Elite Section which was named in recognition of my status in life.
BUT NOW I AM LISTED AS “NEW MEMBER” AND AM BLOCKED FROM THE…[Read more]
How Many Communications Channels?
During Hurricane Florence KDX has been covering the event by re-streaming the internet signal from an FM station in Willmington, North Carolina, which was relaying live coverage from a local TV station, itself also streaming on its own website and carried on cable systems. While all this was going on we posted…[Read more]
It’s Not Over
KDX continues to check in with WFBT-FM in the Wilmington, NC area, which at times carries programming from their radio studio known as “The Big Talker” (same name we used for our shortwave transmitter), and at other times from WWAY-TV3.
Last night TV3 announced that their main transmitter is out, and because it’s surrounded by…[Read more]
Zara Has Many Features
Yes, I can also tell you that Zara can play from any hard-drive that your computer and other software is able to save/load from.
Using a sequential file list might be a way of programming many songs, but I’m not sure it permits random play.
Sticking with the way described by Artisan Radio is probably the most direct way…[Read more]
To TheInitiative Admin
When I tried to log in as a New Member the robot told me I AM ALREADY A MEMBER!
But now I am also a New Member.
I will send TheLegacy a private Email with details so the Admin can remove my Double Entry.
Anyway, things look strong over there!
We Got In!
It took some time but I convinced the robotic software to allow me to enter TheInitiative low power radio website… I tried to explain to it that I am a robot (it wanted me to prove I wasn’t a robot (!?))
A lot has been going on there and I think more low power believers should join!
Good work guys!!
