GRASSROOTS RADIO CONFERENCE Albany, NY NEW DATES!! OCTOBER 6~9.. Save the date!
Citing 9/11.. LAX requested to raise their power of their 530 kHz station
Citing that it is "essential to facilitate the airport’s efforts to provide emergency communications to the traveling public in the event of a terrorist attack", Los Angeles World Airports has filed an application with a waiver request attached to increase one of their 530 kHz transmitters from 10 watts to 100 watts. The application was filed on February 6th.
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.
