When the subcarriers were deregulated in 1983, ours were marketed and leased for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
“Subsidiary Communications Authorization” is the United States Federal Communications Commission‘s official designation for this type of service. SCA was deregulated in 1983; since then, both AM and FM licensed broadcast stations have been allowed to use subcarriers in the United States in general without requiring separate authority; authorization is only required for some uses which are still otherwise regulated, such as common carrier or Land Mobile Radio Service transmissions. The fidelity (bandwidth) of SCA channels on FM is generally quite limited compared to that of the main program material.”
This money went and goes, to our Foundation.
