I saw one of the Green Bay Packer radios on eBay but forgot what frequency it used, but do know they have to be reprogrammed (or adjusted) each season.
Don’t think you really grasped the point of my last post, but I suppose you could call it a kind of loophole, but you still have to apply and then be granted permission from the FCC to operate in…[Read more]

However, let me also point out the wiki article may be incorrect (or at least outdated) when it says “Two internal Part 15 radio stations are operated within the area surrounding Lambeau Field during Packers home games..”
I had dug around looking for conformation about this a few months ago, and found numerous articles and documentation…[Read more]

I presume your referring to the Green Bay Packers part 15 system I had posted about a few months ago which is used to provide play by play broadcast within their stadium for spectators without the delay experienced from a network feed received on a standard portable radio. Numerous other professional sports arenas use this method as well…[Read more]

It usually takes over an hour for him to respond to an email. Sometimes as long as three hours. Just be patient, take a nap or something.
I recognize that map, it’s at https://www.nf8m.com/nf8m/us-medium-wave-pattern-references/ . You select daytime or nighttime coverage for any frequency and it will provide results as shown above in Rich’s post. You can even download the database for offline use. Pretty cool.
I would try contacting Mram directly, his email is shown on his profile: http://mbcf.boards.net/user/1
Not sure what the present status of the ALPB is, but sure he could answer any questions you have concerning it.
“There are many of us as evidenced by posts here and on other forums who recognize the limitations imposed and still enjoy the hobby. Frustration is the difference between what you have and what you want. Be realistic about what you have and you can still have fun.”
Well said Neil.
Artisan, I don’t think that’s quite the same thing.. that article is 5 years old, the above linked article is recent and seems to relate to a different proposal of which the deadline for stations to achieve the rights to play without infringement must be submitted by the 9th of this month or else your not protected..
Here’s a link I was able to read: CALLING ALL OLDIES STATIONS!
It seems to refer to some kind of legalization of playing pre 1972 music without being sued.. I don’t quite grasp what it is saying, but the deadline for comments is on April 9 only days away..

Well didn’t you just pop in out of the blue Jennifer.. Checked out your website (RadioActivefree.com) and see your from Chattanooga. How long has your station been going on? What transmitter(s) you use? Is your studio a mobile setup? How have your popup broadcast events been?
Nice to have a female in the mist! (or so I presume.. never knew a guy…[Read more]
Yes, sorry, The Legacy: https://www.radio.net/s/thelegacy (Not sure how to extract the actual stream to use with any radio app but it can be played on that page or by downloading the radio.net app.
Carl, I didn’t realized you periodically streamed.. does your actual stream address change or is it consistent every time? I couldn’t add the address…[Read more]
Mark, a lot of people upload multi-hour segments to radio4all.net/ , which would be a simple way of doing it.
As for part15 streaming stations, the only ones I know are:
ABN Old-Time Radio Antioch: http://18.104.22.168:8000/listen
Radio Sausalito: http://radiosausalito.org/128k
Retro Radio 1490: http://ice10.securenetsystems.net/RETRO
But if the translator gets the listeners broadcasting the same feed on FM does the AM station get credited with the listeners?
It took me awhile before I could even make sense of giving AM station FM channels to help save AM.. but eventually realized it was in hopes of boosting ad revenue. But from what I’ve observed.. at least around the Savannah…[Read more]
Kens one of the “originals” in my book even though he’s not heard from often anymore. I still visit Tiny Harbors site time and again, but unfortunately he doesn’t appear to stream anymore. I miss randomly checking out the part15 streamers..
I started that simply as a place to put things related to our hobby that often seems to get lost with time and difficult to find again later buried deep in years of forum discussions.. It really had no focus (other than part 15 in general).. and it still doesn’t.
If I was to have a mission statement it would probally be something along the lines…[Read more]
It’s an interesting and well written article, but like most any of them it tends to rehash popular topics and views for the purpose of readership. Everything has to be taken with a grain of salt because there’s always more to the story.. where am I going with this?..
Anyway, for example, the numbers they use when they say: “AM is dying for a…[Read more]
RichPowers replied to the topic What Is The Heightest You Can Have A Antenna On Part15 AM?? in the forum temp 6 months, 2 weeks ago
But it actual goes back to the early 1940s with the “Gibson Girl” transmitter which allowed you to raise your antenna 800 feet with a balloon: Some great pictures and info here: http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/46103-gibson-girl-scr-578-survival-radio-transmitter/
