Apply Nov. 1-8 for an LP FM Radio License:
Video, How-to Book, and Many Resources…
November 1-8, 2023 is the once-in-a-decade opportunity for activists to apply online for a Low Power FM (LPFM) Community Radio license.
NOTE: The Grass Roots Radio Conference Oct. 19-22 is just a jump-shot away from the FCC LPFM filing window.
With a limit of 100 watts, each station can cover a radius about 3.5 miles and be an affordable, powerful tool for positive change. And unlike programming on the internet, people can listen anonymously, surveillance-free. In some areas, several such stations are forming mutual support networks to expand the zone of their collective coverage.
