No kidding Pete?! Is it my responsibility to check the ARRgghhL web site for
their transmissions? Some may visit it more than others but I do not (nor do
I care). In reference to the broadcasting, this is what I said: "I don't
have a rule book in front of me but I thought that one-way transmissions,
in and of their self was prohibited by the FCC until this issue came up."
Clue: read the last part of my statement carefully.
Personally, I think that the ARRgghhL should cease and desist with their
one-way transmissions since they never check the frequency to see if it is
in use. I hold them in the same low esteem as K1(wo)MAN. To me that is
intentional QRM and is subject to the same set of rules that you cite. Their
best bet would be to get permission or licensing to broadcast just outside
of the ham bands and not cause any problems to anyone.
