There is a new unlicensed

  • There is a new unlicensed low-power radio station in Springfield, IL according to the State Journal-Register. The station, calling itself WY2K, is operating at 100 mw on 1690 AM, so that, theoretically, it is within the part 15 range not requiring a license.
    However, it will be interesting to see if the FCC chooses to agree that the station does not need to be licensed. The operator appears to view this less as an act of civil disobedience, so I’ll be curious to see how long it stays in operation.If anyone from Springfield has heard this station, I’d like to hear from you.
