Historical site – Part 15 Radio Stations of North America
Posted on October 25, 2007
Editor’s note: I ran across a copy of J. Smick’s famous pioneering low power radio web site, down since 2006. The link below takes you to an Internet Archve copy of this great site. The technical information alone is a gold mine.
Some of the links still work, although the links on the archived version frequently take you to archived versions of the sites.
Here’s a teaser, and the link below:
Basis and purpose
This site was created because of your author’s long-time fascination and involvement with FCC Part 15 legal low-power radio operations. While there are many excellent resources and station listings on the Internet for low-power radio in general, including
TIS/HAR, etc., e.g.
to name a few) there is essentially nothing specifically and solely dealing with those tiny radio stations permitted under the Federal Communications Commission’s Part 15 Rules as unlicensed, but legal operations.
Since there are many excellent resources available online for both illegal Pirate Radio or Microradio and for licensed, TIS/HAR type operations, these type stations are not covered here; this site is strictly for those operations which can be classified as authorized under the various subsections of 47 CFR (Code of Federal Regulations), Part 15.
It is hoped that this site will serve to inform both potential listeners and DXers and those contemplating operating their own Part 15 stations, as well as helping to popularize legal low power radio.
