For Immediate Release
COMMISSIONER ROSENWORCEL ON WEEKLY
JOBLESS REPORT SHOWING
6.6 MILLION NEW UNEMPLOYMENT CLAIMS
April 2, 2020: Today, Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel issued the
following statement regarding the announcement that 6.6 million
Americans filed unemployment claims last week. For the last two
weeks, nearly 10 million Americans filed jobless claims.
announcement is a sad indication of the impact of the coronavirus
pandemic on the country’s economy and on the livelihood of so many
people that find themselves newly out of work. As the coronavirus
places new strains on our economy and households across the country, we
need to make sure that no one is left behind when it comes to
communications. Now is the time to see how we can modernize our
Lifeline program and extend its reach to so many in need. This
includes the millions of recently unemployed, seniors, and others at
risk at this difficult time. The FCC has done so before in the
face of crisis and it’s time to do so again.”

Can Low Power Part 15 Radio Stations
Increase Power Levels During Time of Emergency?
year ago I scoured the FCC rule books and found a scattered number of
circumstances under which emergency broadcast service can be
established without an FCC license, and it appeared that only certain
licensed categories are provided procedures under which they may
operate beyond the limits of their licensed authority, including HAM
(Amateur) stations. I closed the study with the impression that any
person or group is offered a window to apply to the FCC for Special
Emergency Authority to provide a specified location with essential
information, but this cannot, if granted, be combined with music
or entertainment programming and must cease operation when the
emergency is over.
opinion is not a definitive reference on the subject and anyone
who pursues the idea is responsible for their own fact finding, but The
Blare Blog welcomes input regarding any discoveries or experience along

Procaster is a great transmitter from all reports. If we weren't on the
brink of pandemonium I'd get one for KDX. And I'm glad that KROCKS
legacy has resurfaced as the brilliant radio enthusiast I remember...
he is today the Chief Engineer for the Wyoming Region of full power
Town Square Media radio stations. Like myself, the mini-trump that
staged a hostility takeover of the ALPB couldn't stand the blunt and
well informed disagreements made by better informed KROCKs and drove
him away as "detrimental to the ALPB" where only one man's opinion is
allowed. I hesitate to comment about Bob Fwordly because he has
demonstrated his hacking ability with computer systems by sending
untraceable threatening "anonymous" emails... and recently my website
went down, which I've been attributing to old equipment... but ....

Frequencies Opening and Closing
Worldround Radio is an international radio station speaking (streaming)
English to the whole of mankind. But, inasmuch as it's necessary to be
somewhere, we happen to be located in the physical midwest (we say
midwaste) of the Homeland (formerly the United States of America), and
generally have little to say about that seen at close range, such as
neighboring lawns, dog-human walkings and city hall laundry. We
do, however, get to wondering whether the state of the local radio dial
is representative of wider trends or merely distinct to the region.
it one frequency at a time there is 590 kHz which opened up for a few
months following a publicized fist-fight among managers in the station
hallway followed by shutting down for lack of funds. By a coincidence
we of KDX were on the lookout for a channel low on the AM dial for our
forthcoming carrier-current station, but right when we would have
begun, funding must have come through because 590 returned to operation.
The Past Has Ended, the Present is
Failing, and the Future Could Be Anything -- Carl Blare, just now
So, where are we to look for ideas
toward a new point of view?
1380 went silent for a number of weeks giving opportunity for a latent
desire of ours to plunk transmitters on every possible frequency so our
local (low power) footprints would approach that of a shoe-wearing
centipede but then 1380 returned to life with an all-woman format so
strenuous that it burned out within two weeks and went silent again
until another ambitious scheme brought it back.
frequencies are beginning to extinguish as the licenses are pulled by
the FCC for alleged misrepresentation in the original applications by
Insane Broadcasting Company. These are 1510, 1490, 1430, 1190 kHz and
98.7 FM (translator), one of which remains on the air as the drama
Now, as it turns out, isn't the right time for KDX
to expand onto all this new (un)real estate because spending on
transmitters is unjustified during a pandemic.

FM Works for KDX
afternoon the KDX Website was closed for weekly maintenance during
which time we physically relocated the FM transmitter that delivers KDX
programming to radios here within the Internet Building, home of
Worldround Radio. The transmitter has been crowded in with a jumble of
computers and peripherals closely crammed around the operator position
and was moved to relieve some of the crowding as we pursue repair of
our disabled server. Now positioned 35-feet away at the rear-wall of
the building the C.Crane FM2 Transmitter is on the air while we enjoy
Harry Schearer's weekly Le Show.
KDX has made much use of low power FM as authorized under FCC 15.239
and regularly utilizes five frequencies to shuttle programs from
point to point.
For farther reach out about the surrounding campus KDX operates AM
transmitters on five frequencies under FCC 15.219/15.221.
