Webinar: Building the Community Media Landscape with Low Power Radio
In the winter of 2013 the FCC will be opening the first “fully implemented” Low Power FM (LPFM) application window, opening up the airwaves for hundreds of communities across the US. Nonprofits such as PEG stations are eligible to apply for LPFM licenses and make great candidates since many have the existing infrastructure and community support to successfully launch a station. In this webinar, participants will learn about: the process of submitting an FCC application, the costs/benefits of PEG/LPFMs, and the engineering involved in finding an available frequency. We will give a short overview of the power of low power FM radio stations and identify effective strategies to apply today. By explaining the new rules, policies and application procedures for LPFM, we’ll help you build another outlet for local voices in your community media landscape. Hosted by the Alliance for Community Media and Jeff Shaw of Davis Media Access/KDRT-LP and Common Frequency.
