OT: Denied!

It was reported here late December that three public safety minded sixth graders had applied for an experimental license to transmit emergency messages over AM and FM. With two words, the FCC dealt the enterprising youngsters a crushing blow today: DENIED/DISMISSED!

Was it some national organization complaining about localism, or some petty organization complaining about theoretical interference to non-existent towers far, far away, or did they forget to specify average or peak power, or did some paranoid public radio organization conduct more test to show it would interfere with classical radio? We may never know. All we know is that the lads from Manheim, Pennsylvania will have to find a new project to which to apply their inventive minds.
