Can’t speak to lawyer’s fees, however, in NC the filing for nonprofit is $400. Not sure what the yearly stuff is after that. I assume that the $1200 you have includes lawyer’s fees?
Can you provide any other insight into the process?
For any of you out there who have run their LPAM station as a business, can anyone speak to running, or trying to run, a LPAM station as a 501(c) nonprofit business? How would this play against being Part 15 vs. being FCC recognized?
I figure if it’s cool that you could ostensibly run your Part 15 as a for profit business, I would think being a…[Read more]
Thanks everyone! This has been hugely informative and given me a lot of perspective I didn’t previously have. I will keep you all posted on forward progress. For the moment, however, I am going to stay terrestrial until I can get some cash under me.
Man… that was really informative!
Okay, so, I need to pay more money to stay legit. I did look up the Stream Licensing website and it seems rather easy to get going there. I think the initial price on the lowest rung isn’t bad to start with. I like the DJC/Adswizz. I did a little looking around there, but they also seem to be PC bas…[Read more]
I’ve been talking with Gary over at Securenet/Cirrus streaming. He says (famous last words) that I can pay SoundExchange $500 a year and that covers all publishing. He also said that with his service works well with StationPlaylist as the automator. He gives 300 listeners for the lowest tier. They provide apps, Alexa, iTunes support and all…[Read more]
Couple of quick q’s about streaming.
Was told it’s easier/better to have all the same equipment (i.e. Arrakis board with their automation software and then whoever (Icecast/Shoutcast) to host and send out your stream). But that seems like an awfully expensive way to go.
What do y’all do for streaming?
I was considering using Radiologik (I…[Read more]
Anyone ever have an issue with the green light not coming on? I finally got a chance to get my transmitter up and test it (I have the agile one set to 1700AM). I triple checked all connections and confirmed via the volt meter that the transmitter was getting the 16v DC power.
But no green light. Any thoughts? Oh, the power is definitely on…[Read more]
Everything finally clicked. I get it now. It’s a wonderful feeling.
So what is the last piece of the signal chain? The audio processor or the converter (if you use one)? If you aren’t using a converter and you’re using your balanced stereo XLR outs on your mixer, how are you summing them in the transmitter to mono (if you aren’t using a pro…[Read more]
I don’t believe mine came with the studio module. At least, I don’t see anything in the box that allow power and 3.5mm connections. It still comes in the big, gray plastic box.
I’m gonna talk to my girlfriend’s dad today and get his initial thoughts. I also plan on watching the DVD and see if it provides any insight. I also called Ran…[Read more]
I have a feeling that this is going to be an ever increasing, long thread. Ha!
I got my Rangemaster delivered today and I didn’t get a power supply… unless that’s what this is in the Lenovo box. Or it could just be a Lenovo computer power supply, which it looks like, not wall wart. I would assume that I need the proper power supply?
I’m go…[Read more]
Are there/would there be any benefit in having a certain set of information around? If you aren’t breaking the law, does the FCC have any real reason to pay you a visit?
Alright… so I got my ringmaster and antenna coming in the mail. I know I still gotta test it and all that, but I have been doing lots and lots of more research and checking things out in the forums here and elsewhere.
According to all net sources, in my area no one broadcasts from 1600-1700 AM. In the daytime, this is true, I hear nothing b…[Read more]
Was really curious about this myself. Please, if there is still a question to keep this post, please keep it. Super informative!
Also… since I don’t quite get the math, if a fella was to broadcast on 1710, what would your output power actually be on the transmitter?
THANK YOU ALL!!
So much good replies and information. I am taking some more time now to research and dig in here to the forum. I will get back to you all here with more questions and ideas soon.
I can’t tell you how great this is, thank you!
Thanks for having me on the forum. I apologize in advance if any of what I’m about to ask is obvious stuff. I have been in music/pro audio for several years but this is my first forays into radio.
I am looking to start my own LPAM station in my local area. I live on an island in southeastern NC, there are few stations here and lo…[Read more]
