Model Train AM Radio
Posted on November 4, 2008
In some ways the Part 15 hobby resembles the model train hobby, because both amount to a miniature replication of the larger world. Combining the hobbies makes perfect sense for train modelers and would open a new target market for Part 15 manufacturers. Imagine a miniature town in a railroad layout. Somewhere in the town would be the radio station with its own transmitter shack and tower. The tower would extend from floor to ceiling and pierce right through the table. The section below the table would be painted flat black so it would not be noticed, and the section from the table to the ceiling would feature red & white FAA design with flashing tower lights at “night.” For that matter the town might have several stations just as it has several trains.
