You can't intentionally relay a signal legally, nor selling advertisement for this kind of service.
I signed up as Neutrodyne.
This was where I was listening when I checked WWV on Halloween and heard what sounded like normal dead air from no signal,
but then I could tell it was a blank carrier, then audio of some local FM feed for 15 seconds, then back into normal WWV.
This is what I had envisioned internet radio would be, where the user first picks a location and remotely operates the receiver.
I honestly thought some business would create the network of recievers across the country and stream audio back
to wherever requested and make it into a profitable venture simply by providing ad space on screen along with the audio
But that's 'cause I see this as what I'd like from a listeners viewpoint.
None of that makes any sense from an advertising/commercial/radio station perspective because it gives every other
station in any market equal access. So this hasn't happened until enough listeners assembled a network.
Neither can you "legally", "intentionally" operate or leave running the engine in your vehicle without your immediatel physical presence.
But guess what, the remote starter was invented, and became ubiquitous in total disregard for such laws.
And the lamp dimmers everywhere, and the switching power supply in your computer are supposed to cause no more radio interference than simply operating another radio next to the first, if they were truly and meaningfully part 15 compliant.
So what good are FCC laws, or what good are they if technology ignores the REAL reason they were written?
Yes, in FCC law you cannot legally relay over the air
except in specifically designed and applied situations.
But as far as sending it over wire/internet, why would an ad supported service be any different than say, me reading a copy of a
San Francisco newspaper story online? What if I'm sightless? Info is info. There's ads on-screen.
Or is there a real specific reason why radio should be specifically prevented from going beyond its "market"?
Just looking for some kind of logic for what seems to me such a specific repression of a certain technology or information set.
