thanks for posting this, I had been thinking about posting it myself for a while now. I have to say that OFCOM were absolute gentleman when they visited me and as you know no action was taken against me, which took me by surprise as their reputation seemed to me to be undeserved but I expect that depends on whom they are dealing with. I did say to them that I was shocked by their understanding and that I had no idea they worked in this way to which one of them replied, "we take all circumstances into account and with respect, your age". I'm 66 in 7 weeks. They asked if I would give them the transmitter, which I did as it was a small price to pay and didn't cost the earth anyway so I was only given a slap on the wrist so to speak. It was as they were leaving I said to them "why don't you legalise the 100mw fm transmitters as they have in the USA" his reply was "yes they might well do that soon" I never mentioned AM but who knows what may happen as the band becomes less popular. I too am considering buying myself one of those AM rigs too it seems good value to me for a 1w AM transmitter and it would get me back on the air again. :-)
All the best to everyone posting here. Bill (Ex Admin)
