Speaking only for myself & my previous comments to this nb-d list on
this matter:

1) I had zero concern you might be doing something nefarious ,

2) I did have the concern that a "(design) pattern of open disclosure"
[See email re that, from two weeks ago on this nbd list, 
Pasted at bottom of this msg,
from another thread;
Oren Beck, re Transparency Patterns.]
would be beneficial to the nb community
by showing that the application is being assembled in an open way,

& 3) Given that few nb'ers have been through an FCC licensing procedure
(as have you and I)
nor have dealt with other US Govt licensing applications,
I believe that the presentation here on this list
will have a positive effect on the nb community,
by explicitly showing the language of the license requirements.

Someone reading this type of government language
will likely acquire the sense that this Noisebridge LPFM broadvast Radio
project
is not some umimportant little play type thing,
with little serious implication or consequence.


Good job, Norman.

Thanks.

:)
