RE: FM Satellite Etiquette question....



If you hear ANY station using the "repeater" it IS a violation to attempt to
overpower it.  The original complaint was about a club monopolizing the
satellite with 100 watts.  The "solution" was to use 200 watts next year.
Do you say that this is not a violation of either the "minimum power
necessary" or "intentional interference" paragraphs of Part 97?
