    I'm looking to create a Pt-15/Internet  Community Radio Station, located in Allston-Brighton and for all of Boston.

    It's a dream, yes. But it's not out of reach!

    Right now, I'm looking for a small group of VOLUNTEERS who are willing to work to make this dream a reality. All we really need to get us on the air is a small office space. All other basic equipment is readily available.

    My proposed location is 18.389150 N 66.815098 W . My problem is that  on myLPFM search I find Channel 300 107.9 fully available in the clear. However when I run the same data on the finder here it shows no stations in the clear and 2 worth looking at. Why such a huge discrepancy? Also I was looking in to possibly  entering the freq 107.9 manually to see if it would tell why it disqualified it but I have found no way of doing that,

    Here's a link to the job posting for ZUMIX's new Vista position - to help us with our anticipated transition from an online to a broadcast (LPFM) station:

    One of the most disturbing things we have learned in the current round of applications, is that the site is populated with several person posing as engineers or applicants, who are imposters.  These imposters are employees of commercial radio stations seeking information they can use to help defeat your application.  So do not assume the people on this site are who they say they are, particularly some of this listed as engineers.

    Congratulations your application for a low power FM station (form 318) has been accepted for filing! Now what? There might still be some bumps on the road, but Prometheus can help you through this journey.

    I have a question:  I'm working on an app for someone.  A channel is available but it's listed as a receive frequency (co-channel)  for a translator that is still just an application.  This translaotor is just 8 km from our proposed site, but is not in the "key hole" direction this translator would be receiving in.

     

    Now this translator lists a primary station that I seriously doubt could be received over the air.  (The primary is like 130 miles away) but nonetheless it's the listed primary.

    I asked this question:

    I conducted a channel search at my proposed location ( 39.456874, 94.237864 ). REC says 105.7 is fully spaced and available, however it does offer a note about spacing from a third adjacent channel. The FCC search and RFree searchs did not show 105.7 as an available frequency at this location.

    I got this response (THANKS KEITH!):

    I asked Michi over at REC Networks (aka myLPFM) this question since it was not obvious to me and as usual, it was obvious to Michi :-)

    What would cause this discrepancy? Is the 3rd adjacent channel spacing the issue?
