Interesting that more people have radios than internet ; however, while widespread (92% have radios) that means 8% of the population has no radio at all. For the US that would be about 25 million people who don't own a radio.

Mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, if LPFM were to offer some truly original programming and more variety - well, that would be terrific. However, my concern here is twofold:

1) Most LPFM's seem to be religious Bible-bangers. Honestly, that serves almost no one; and (importantly),

2) The FCC shoehorns these LPFMs into markets in such a way that they often wipe out previous reception that you had of out-of-market signals. Exchange the aforementioned Bible-banger with that oldies station that you liked from an adjacent market and you have a pretty raw deal.

So, you'll excuse me if I hold off on the champagne. I remain skeptical on the concept.

I don't understand why we can't have a couple of open frequencies to use with low power F.C.C. approved transmitters. 87.9 FM, 1610 and 530 would be fine, as well as (often used by pirates anyway) 6925.
If it should make for a mess on those frequencies, who cares? It certainly can't cause any real harm.

What about off channel
interference? That's where the approved transmitters come in.
