Re: all this broadcasting stuff, seems that the regs are pretty clear and
not as full of holes as is being suggested here. The relevant section of the
regs is 47CFR97.111, in which specific types of permitted one-way
transmissions are enumerated. "Transmissions necessary to disseminate
information bulletins" are among them. This contrasts with the prohibition in
47CFR113 of broadcasting for the purpose of news gathering or program
production. The prohibited stuff is related to the "pecuniary interest"
prohibition, not the "dissemination of information" part.
The regs can be viewed at the government printing office:
Search for "47CFR97" and scroll down a bit until you locate 47CFR97.111. I
found that inputting "47CFR97.111" directly into their search engine gave me
too many irrelevant links.
