The mission of HobbyBroadcaster.net is to provide individuals, educational institutions and commercial entities with the highest quality available resources to allow them to legally broadcast on the AM and/or FM radio broadcast bands by utilizing legal, license-free low power radio technology. The site educates the hobby broadcaster and hobby radio enthusiasts who wish to legally broadcast while maintaining compliance with the Federal Communication Commission’s Part 15 regulations.
The inspiration for creating the HobbyBroadcaster.net site occurred during the construction of the McMahon FM high school campus radio station project. With very limited quality information available online regarding Part 15 low power radio broadcasting on the grounds of an educational institution, DeFelice compiled an extensive collection of resources during the execution of the school station project. He was inspired to share these copious resources, creating a high quality online reference depository as well as an online forum community where educators, students, businesses and hobbyists alike can discover the power of the airwaves through low power broadcasting under Part 15 regulations. The result of this labor is the web’s most comprehensive online resource for legal, license-free low power radio enthusiasts and Part 15 broadcasting – HobbyBroadcaster.net.
