Legacy, I responded to your latest post on Micro-broadcasters.
If you know how to with the help of an engineer to get a transmitter to transmit in MA3 good for you as most of us won’t. As for knowing the dark web to see how to do illegal things I don’t know how or want to know how to get on that.
Things you are talking about…death con?,…[Read more]
So Legacy if you do this how do you find “empty space” and how do you know that you are not causing interference?
Since this didn’t exist before no rules were made for it but can’t that change?
This is not all happening yet and won’t for a long time. Aren’t you jumping the gun?
Here’s good ol’ Oompah Hour show #294 ready to roll. At the usual link of course!

How many have satellite radio? over 34 million, that’s how many. And the number grows every year. And these are people who PAY to subscribe to it. So, they own the radios, and they PAY to hear it. Digital AM will not require a subscription.
Darn near every new car today comes with satellite radio in it. And of course you can get portable and…[Read more]
The thing with TV when it changed was that you could keep your other TV and just get a little converter box.
You can’t do that with radio and I agree the general public doesn’t care enough to buy another radio just to listen to AM with digital transmission. It also wouldn’t be AM anymore but that’s besides the point.
The key word is voluntary as…[Read more]
My whole point is the fact that there is so many commercials an hour says that the audience for AM and especially FM, is doing quite well as all the commercials wouldn’t be there if no one was listening. The companies are spending millions to advertise based on the ratings. On FM typically here in Toronto(and most of the stations are all the…[Read more]
The linked article indicates that “AM” broadcasters are having issues, not “broadcasters”. With the increasing noise floor and interference issues, ancient night time power and pattern rules still in effect and other issues it’s been tough for AM to compete with FM from a listenability standpoint. Add to this that most advertising agencies won’t…[Read more]

I do agree that going digital won’t get any more listeners.
As for the commercials they all wouldn’t be there if no one was listening.
We the hobbiests not only keep radio playing what the commercial stations won’t but also commercial free. That’s one of my main promos.
Looked at this as I didn’t know what an SDR receiver was and saw that this is a receiver that uses your computer for sound like a scanner and also displays on your computer screen something similar to a spectrum analyzer. Plugs into a USB port. They are also cheap and have an antenna for over the air signal receiving. Maybe this would be the poor…[Read more]

It’s new and affordable!
