REC opposes petition to require registration of radio (Ham, Land Mobile, etc.) transmitters.
REC has filed comments in opposition to a petition made by Dale Reich to require that radio transmitters subject to licensing be registered. This is done by the retail vendor of the equipment requiring a name and address of the purchaser. A second part of the petition is asking for a requirement that all transmitters (including Part 15) carry a tag with the owner's name and call sign (if required) on it citing it will be easier for enforcement purposes.
REC opposes because the petitioner has not given any extraordinary compelling reason why this is needed. REC feels that this type of registration is similar to registerring firearms.
271 in Nevada may make it easier for Pahrump to get broadband
In a very short filing, REC Networks has filed comments in support of SBC's (Nevada Bell) petition to be able to provide long distance and other inter-LATA services in the state of Nevada.
In our filing, we cite how certain communities are located in a different LATA than SBC's primary service area therefore developing rural areas such as Pahrump are missing out on broadband services such as Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) services.
Starting on February 1, REC will discontinue POWERPUFF-FM and Hardcore 2.
Today, REC Networks has announced that the long running webcast of cartoon and novelty music POWERPUFF-FM will be discontinued. POWERPUFF-FM started back several years ago as a listening companion to the POWERPUFF.COM website.
Anime Hardcore Radio 2 is dubbed as the "lighter side of anime" and played slower music from Japanese animation.
At one time, REC had as many as 9 different webcasts. Previous REC webcasts have been discontinued as a result of the royalty fees imposed by the recording industry.
