  • Damn, my teenage self would've been ecstatic about this ten years ago. In high school built a very tiny mini FM transmitter that basically only transmitted as far as my street- basically the kids across the street would tune in, I called it Radio Voice of Chaos- but I was a crappy pirate radio station because I was too scared of making it stronger and losing my Ham license.

    I might be a geek.

    Reality: thousands of paranoid religious zealots shouting angrily while no one listens, and broadcasting on a frequency close enough to a station you actually like to fark with reception in certain neighborhoods

    And we're done here.

  • Subby actually pays for satellite radio? Wake me when it's $4 per month (non promotional rate).
  • Excellent! I finally get to use this!

  • Why the hell would I pay for radio?

    This...
    Except why care if the classic rock, pop-country or popular youth music station owned by Clear Channel is interfered with.

    The internet has the non-traditional music fans anyway.

    Doesn't just about every community have some neo-Christian station playing modern Christian music now. Does that nitch really need to be filled?

    All right now, for all you boppers out there in the big city, all you street people with an ear for the action, I've been asked to relay a request from the Grammercy Riffs. It's a special for the Warriors, that real live bunch from Coney, and I do mean the Warriors. Here's a hit with them in mind.
  • Sweet maybe now we can get some better music over the airwaves. I have to say I'm pretty sick of the Clear Channel 32 song universal set list.
  • Satellite? FM? I listen to AM news. I actually like to drive around late at night and see what far-away stations I can catch; I don't know anything about radio waves bouncing off the atmosphere or whatever but sometimes I'll get Baltimore, North Carolina, Detroit, even Montreal and Toronto from New York.
  • I know exactly one person with satellite radio. Perhaps Subby should aim for a higher number.
  • Only allowed for non-profit groups. Praise the lord...
  • There are about 300 million people in the US and about 20 million subscribers to satellite radio, so I guess that leaves 400 people who don't have it.
  • Sirius will not stop hounding you if you cancel. They can not be stopped. They cannot be reasoned with. And they will not stop until you renew or die.

    ...come out and pla-yay!
  • Without reading the article, I have to question the claim that only 400 people are not using satellite radio. I had it for a while and didn't find it too valuable. I personally don't know that many people with satellite radio. If they do have it, they're not advertising it.

  • So this guy wants to go to FM to double his range and to get stereo? TFA says he has to use 200 times the power to get the extra distance and AM stereo has been around since at least 1975. I don't understand why he doesn't just get approval to bump up the power a little to get the doubling of the range and add C-QUAM to get the stereo.

    Me neither. The only people I know who use satellite radio is my chiropractor's office. Everybody else I know either listens to terrestrial radio or uses their phone to listen to podcasts and streaming radio.

    Dont know a single person with it, for a second there i was wondering if i was behind the curve. Just tried looking up market share data, but all the data i can find is 4+ years old, And not very reliable.
  • I just don't know that there are enough empty channels to put stations on. Bott/K-Love/American Family/Air1 have pretty much squatted the damned dial in these parts. And they don't have the same requirements for local programming and control operator that a non-commercial station trying to get the same frequency had.

    I guess in really rural America, the foot-washing-serpent-holding Baptists can put up a competing station to the foot-scrubbing-serpent-kissing Baptists. That's nice.

    Exactly one for me as well. I. Think subby is on a trolling expedition.
