I’m sure your right Mark, I haven’t looked at the manual Tim provided, but did note that even the ISS Products page specifies the TR6000 can be used for “unlicensed broadcast operations under FCC Part 15.221”
Tim mentioned: “But notice it says Part 15.221 and specifically states for carrier current or educational campus uses.”
There’s an interesting side story about that.. which may derail the thread a tad, but it’s still in the ball park of the subject on hand;
Recently I’ve been researching the use of part 15 in Drive-ins, and in the book ‘Drive-in…[Read more]
adjustable wattage for zero to 30 watts. I run it legally with a legit length antenna and ground . It covers about a few miles and thats all i want
Very cool find Tim, but you realize you have to have it set at a maximum of 100mw to operate it under part 15 – which means, if the adjustments are properly set, it’s highly unlikely to be capable of…[Read more]
I consider the following appropriate to post here under Regulations/Law. If the moderators deem it more appropriate under a different category then I have no objection if it gets relocated…
For anyone concerned about legally operating a Part 15 community station, one should be thoroughly familiar with the famed KENC station, what he did right,…[Read more]
Somebody… I thought it had been in this forum, but perhaps elsewhere, but somebody (I kind of thought it had been Mram, but apparently not) had described in detail how they utilized a common alert radio along with some common utilities to create an automatic EAS type on air alert system that automatically kicked in and interrupted the current…[Read more]
Don’t know what video your talking about, but I seriously suspect the NAB could care less one way or the other if part 15 broadcaster broadcast emergency info or not, or much of anything else…
But you have an interesting idea, however you could probably get by a lot cheaper and less cumbersome than using an car stereo to do it. There’s…[Read more]
Ok, I think I kind of get it now.. OTA stations in the US do have to pay BMI, who in turn pays only the original writer of the song, but stations don’t pay other royalties to anyone else.. Not the artist, neither singer or band, not the composition or production, not anyone other the writer. – Is this correct?
If so, then that would better…[Read more]
I’m still confused.. In the U.S, if OTA stations have never been required to pay royalties for the music they play (except for their online streams), then where did the idea come from that OTA part 15 stations need to pay royalties?.. I always interpreted it as because it’s considered a “public performance’ like jukeboxes or even live bands at…[Read more]
For example, when I follow the instructions to go to streaming – Playlist, Add Internet Stream – I get a little box that asks for the duration of the connection and insert the URL.
That’s so when you insert a source from the internet to add to your playlist it will know how long to stay connected before resorting to your local playlist, oth…[Read more]
Oh! I didn’t realize how old this thread was! For a much simpler method of streaming with Zara you might want to scroll up towards the top of this page to my December 25, 2010 post, using Broadwave and virtual audio cable made things quick and easy to set up.. I was up and going in minutes. I forgot all about that, it was so quick and easy to…[Read more]
Not sure why DJboutit implies that Zara can’t handle large playlist.. that’s simply not true, I’m pretty sure it can handle any size, or at least a three or four thousand library of songs. I have streamed on the internet before using Zara during a test run years ago, but did not answer your question because I kind of forgot the specifics on the…[Read more]
I was waiting for you to reply Tim. Quite frankly I’m confused, the article states that currently OTA stations pay no royalties and this proposal aims to change that.. You say OTA stations have always been required to pay. If that’s the case then why the proposed act? Who’s correct on this copywriter issue? Congress or you?
“. ..And yes, it will gain and hold far more listeners.”
Not sure I agree with that.. For what it’s worth; about the only programming I hear on the AM dial that I particularly care to tune into is during the late/early hours when “Coast to Coast AM” airs… Everything else seems to be constant political rants all day (which kind of nauseates me)…[Read more]
RichPowers replied to the topic 87.5 Mhz at Football Stadium Legal? I thought otherwise in the forum Transmitter Talk 3 months ago
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]
