LPFM : Message: FM Translators, LPFM on Tap at FCC Later This Month

We've reported the agency has been wrestling with a version of the "chicken or egg" dilemma: what to do with the thousands of pending FM translator applications yet still carve out frequencies for new LPFMs. At its March 21 public meeting, the agency plans to consider a Report & Order detailing how it will handle FM translator applications that have been pending since 2003 and consider a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on LPFM. The commission plans to implement a market-specific FM translator processing scheme. It remains to be seen if that's been modified since the proposal it floated last year in which the agency planned to reserve between five to eight LPFM frequencies per market and accept FM translator applications for those markets once the LPFM minimum had been met.

The commission will also consider a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking regarding proposals to implement the Local Community Radio Act. Leo Ashcraft. LPFM Home, How to Start an LPFM Radio Station, LPFM Radio. LPFM : Low Power FM - LPFM / NCE Radio Stations. Low Power FM and NCE Broadcast stations.

Using just a few mw of output power, this circuit is used to find the 50 ohm resonance frequency of antennas or can be used to adjust an Antenna Tuning Unit for 50 ohm match, without generating QRM.

The unit is powered by a 9 volt battery and a Frequency counter is required to know where the oscillator is tune to. The output match indicator is a LED. The LED is off when the bridge is in balance and gets brighter when the bridge goes out of balance. Therefore, when using to adjust an ATU for 50 ohm match, one would adjust the ATU until the LED goes out. This circuit can be built on a small circuit board and uses little power, so is practical to take into the field The " 'Tenna dipper" consists of a wide range voltage tuned oscillator, a 50 ohm resistive bridge and a sensitive defector circuit. The R/C oscillator section of a 74HC4046 PLL/VCO chip is used as the frequency source. With the 22K R3 value, the stable tuning range of the oscillator is about 2.5 to 22 MHz.

He is currently using an Icom IC-720, but will have a Yaesu FT-897 and Kenwood TL922 during the first week of May 2014. Antennas are a Spiderbeam (20/15/10m) and a homebrew dipole for 80/40/30m. Modes will be SSB and the Digimodes (PSK, JT-65, JT9). He will attempt to be active on the Oscars, and next month he hope to be active on 6 meters as well. His QSL Manager is SWL PA3249 (only direct with SAE and 2 GS).
