The GPS epoch started at 00:01 1st June 1980 and the week number roles at 1024 week intervals at 0h (midnight) GPS time.
When a leap second is added its as if the clock stops for a second so GPS time will be in advance of UTC buy the number of leap seconds added. 18 leap seconds have been added to date, so 0h GPS 07 april 2019 will be crossed…[Read more]

Bill Baker already quoted on a TR6000 Model 15.73 and ANXX Antenna to operate under § 15.221.
Waiting to see if of the grant materializes.
Sound advice – As an example, The Pacifica Foundation (non-profit radio network) ended up with a set of bylaws that allowed the local stations to be manipulated by a small group of people into near bankruptcy, and perpetual strife at the local and national level. Textbook example of what **not** to do.
Fortunately, our initial board has it’s…[Read more]
$600.00 IRS Filing Fees
$359.00 Legal Prep fees
$125.00 State of New Jersey Filing fees
$116.00 Corporate seal, letterhead, and business cards
We are using LegalZoom for the filing. They have an on-line cost estimator on their website.
Funny that this should come up – Our Makerspace/podcast studio that transmorgified into a Part 15 station is going down this road right now.
The number is going to vary state to state, but the filing fees and cheapest attorney we could find is going to be about $1200. Filing the 990 (the nonprofit tax return) is projected to cost $660 a ye…[Read more]
If you want to see a non-commercial station that really has jumped the shark, look at WBAI in NYC (they are non-comm right in the middle of the band)
Between their hawking pseudo–scientific cures and offering revisionist history about minorities in America, you have to wonder how they ended up this way.
They used to be a serious and respected…[Read more]
Have you asked them to include your requests in the public file?
Next would be a registered letter asking to inspect and copy the public file during business hours. Failure to allow this is a major issue and will cause a license issue for them.
BTW, They are normally on-line, however WPKN has not met the March 1, 2018 deadline to put theirs…[Read more]
On the flip side of the equation: There are a dozen or more new OTA television antennas on my block as people give up expensive cable television and revert to OTA and streaming services…
Just pre-ordered ours after receiving the alert from Bill Baker:
“You are on an exclusive list of people registered to be first in line to receive information on the new R.A.T. 1.0 Remote Antenna & Tuner, which will extend the outdoor range of the i A.M. Radio / Talking House Transmitter to a half-mile or more via standard RG6 Coaxial Cable. We…[Read more]

Quick question: Did your team write the statement of policy at https://www.wbxoclassicrock.com/policy or was it farmed out to an attorney?
I need one for CDL was curious if we could use the WBXO document as a starting point for our attorney.
The headshot of Laura Picardo at https://www.wbxoclassicrock.com/personalities shows an Avaya 8410D phone in the background.
Are you are running a Avaya Definity / CM at WBXO?
I maintain a network of the beasts at the day job, so it kind of stood out

Quick (very unofficial) update on things at the CDL:
The volunteers running the two programs (CDL and IXR) in building 9059 at InfoAge have decided to merge the programs.
What that potentially brings to the equation:
- More people who actually want to get on the air (less automation).
- Expanding the on-air stream to include studio video.

Not exactly what I was looking for as it basically cuts away 2/3 of the campus.

We have a potential grant to purchase a TR6000 Model 15.73 and ANXX Antenna to operate under § 15.221
Before I ask to spend non-grant money on hiring a professional RF engineer to do the measurements, I wanted to make sure I understand the regulatory.
§ 15.221 (2) states: At the perimeter of the campus, the field strength of any emissions, in…[Read more]
