For the past 72 hours, I have been following the whole Elon Musk Twitter issue with the banning of accounts related to the @ElonJet account that was retransmitting ACARS and other data regarding the position of his private jet as well as the many journalists who have been caught in the gauntlet for reporting on it.

Fifteen years ago, an amazing radio technology was first introduced. Why do so few people know about it and why isn’t its use very widespread? Yes, I am referring to HD Radio, which just recently celebrated its 15th anniversary. Still, very few people (outside of the industry) actually know about it or what it does, more or less actually owns a radio to receive it. So, what happened?

One piece of advice that I have been giving LPFM stations for quite awhile is to remind them that as renewals are coming up, they need to make sure they are complying with the rules because their dialmates are likely taking notes.
Now with the Petition to Deny period open on the first wave of broadcast renewals, we are starting to see the first signs of that note-taking that I warned about.

No. It’s not because of the NAB or NPR. It’s because of the LCRA.
Greetings from a very hot weekend. The heat index right now is 109. It’s Saturday. The Yankees are up 9-nil over the Rockies at the end of 4 innings. It’s just too hot to do much else. Welcome to the Riverton summer from Hell.

The FCC has finally made public, the draft of the "technical NPRM" that I had been hearing about. The NPRM (notice of proposed rulemaking) will be considered at the FCC's August 1, 2019 open meeting. Let's take a look at what we may be getting so far...

This is a difficult personal blog for me to write, but I do feel that it is worth an explanation. Today’s REC is about diversity. We even have the root word “diverse” in our current slogan “a leading advocate for a diverse dial.” When you visit REC’s website or call up by phone, you hear that slogan.
