The law should be changed that any person/brand holding
a Radio license commercially shouldn't be allowed to use
the LPFM frequency band. It's happening around the
country and stopping LPFM operators from transmitting on
a frequency.

It needs to be changed and we need to speak up.

I've long held the same thought.

If they can afford to buy a license, then they shouldn't be using 'free' frequencies as well.
That's nothing more than double-dipping.

There are probably going to be some changes to the GURL/LPFM regulations in the near future.
This thought (and several others) will be submitted to those in charge, then we can only sit back and wait to see if things change.

Watch this space!

Commercial Broadcasters have been using LPFM to fill in poor signal areas pretty much since the beginning of LPFM. Putting a relay of a station that they don't have a full power frequency for in that area is more recent but perfectly legitimate under current rules. LPFM frequencies are 'shared' and that means you take your chances. If you want control then think applications, licence fees, and far more accountability.
