An Idea for Part 15
Posted on December 27, 2012
Signal propagation under 15.219 gets better the higher the frequency, with 1700 being the best choice.
But around here 1700 is filled with loud buzz caused by the 2nd harmonic of licensed 850kHz, 5kW less than a mile away. On an S-meter the strength of the buzz is less than 1, down near zero, but it overflows to 1690 and a little bit to my channel, 1680, because it contains IBOC sidebands.
WHAT IF I put a well installed transmitter/antenna on the air on top of the buzz, right at 1700? The buzz would go away in the immediate area, being covered by silence.
AS LONG AS WE’RE AT IT we could transmit our audio on 1700, and together with the 1680 signal we would appear to have a very wide signal!
What could be wrong with that idea?
